The Pediatric Department at Mayanei HaYeshua Medical Center is staffed by a team of expert and experienced pediatricians, with a skilled and friendly nursing team, to treat our young patients with the sensitivity and attention that they are used to receiving at home.
The Pediatric Department was established in the year 2000 by Prof. Yitzhak Versano, one of the foremost pediatricians in the country.
It is presently in the capable hands of Dr. Hannah Ofir, with Prof. Versano continuing to take an active part, as Senior Consultant to the Department, determining general procedures and the patients' day-to-day treatment.
The Department has at its disposal all the resources to deal with most of the common children's ailments at the highest current standards of pediatric medicine accepted in children's departments in Israel and throughout the world.
The Department is supported by Mayanei HaYeshua's specialists in the areas of Ear, Nose and Throat disorders, orthopedics, surgery, neurology, and cardiology. When necessary, specialists are consulted from Schneider Children's Hospital, with whom the Department team is in close contact.
