Until 1990, Bnei Brak, Israel had no hospital to serve its almost 100,000-and-counting population. The risk to life and practical challenges it presented were great. When Dr. Moshe Rothschild established Mayanei Hayeshua in the heart of Bnei Brak, he foresaw the revolution it would mean for the city and for religious Jews all over Israel.
Founded as a community hospital, Mayanei Hayeshua Medical Center (MYMC) is a public hospital with a unique mission: To provide cutting-edge medical services with strict adherence to Jewish tradition and Halacha, and the sanctity of life and human dignity as a fundamental and supreme value.
From a hospital that was predominantly a maternity ward, today Mayanei Hayeshua comprises fifteen departments and 45 outpatient clinics, and ranks third in Israel in the number of births per year, with an annual growth rate of approximately 10%. It employs a professional team of 1,000 highly qualified staff members, who maintain high standards of service, while a large group of volunteers provides a wide range of support services, day and night.
Dedicated General, Pediatric & Maternity ERs, Internal Medicine, Intensive and Intermediate Care Units, Coronary Intensive Care, Gastroenterology, Dialysis, Obstetrics & Gynecology, Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, Pediatrics, Cardiac Catheterization Unit & Heart Institute are just a few of the departments at Mayanei Hayeshua. The hospital also operates a variety of specialist outpatient clinics in the fields of Nephrology, Mental Health, Diabetes, ENT, Nuclear Medicine, Neurology, Orthopedic Surgery, Urogynecology, Male Fertility and Rheumatology, as well as a modern Imaging Institute, Pain Clinic, Voice Clinic, and paramedical services.
Particularly well-known is the large Obstetrics and Gynecology ward which includes delivery rooms, a maternity and gynecology clinic, high-risk pregnancy department, neonatal unit and NICU.
Mayanei Hayeshua has grown and expanded over the years and today serves over 200,000 patients a year. Other annual figures are also astounding: 6,000 operations, 300 patient beds, 13,000 obstetrical deliveries, 62,000 emergency room visits and a turnover of $65 million per annum. That’s quite an achievement for a hospital whose necessity had been dubious.
