Our mission is to support and strengthen Soroka Medical Center, helping to save lives and improve the health of this vast area. We raise funds to support special projects, new buildings and infrastructure.
Located in Be’er Sheva, Soroka Medical Center is a unique institution, and a global symbol of peaceful coexistence. The leading hospital in Israel, it is one of the nations largest, busiest and most important hospitals, and the sole major medical center for all of southern Israel. Through the delivery of urgently needed medical care to the vast and profoundly diverse society in the Negev, we make a unique contribution to the building of a future of security and peaceful coexistence for Israel, serving Arabs and Jews side-by side. Soroka is a beacon for safety, healing and unity in the most trying of situations. It offers recognized excellence across the entire spectrum of medical care: prevention, detection, research, education, genetics, advanced treatment, trauma care and cancer care. Soroka is an outstanding national strategic asset: We are essential to meeting the medical needs of the Israel Defense Forces – as IDF operations and bases are increasingly centered in the Negev. Soroka is fully engaged in the challenges, complexity, and richness of the fabric of life in the Negev. Soroka is the largest employer employ and educate this diverse local population in all capacities. Our unique healthcare institution is truly an Israeli national treasure.
