The 90 million shekel fortified emergency room at Beilinson Hospital in Petach Tikvah has gone operational, becoming Israel’s largest ER. The 5,000 square meter (58,000 square feet) facility is capable of treating 200,000 patients annually.
The new underground facility is underground and bomb proof and offers the best medicine has to offer. Each patient has its own room, unlike standard ERs in which patients are separated by a curtain. This officials explain adds a measure of patient privacy.
There is also a trauma center capable of addressing numerous patients simultaneously.
