Hadassah Medical Center

Hadassah Medical Center

On 24 March 2019 Anna Chromy’s Cloak of Conscience was installed at Hadassah Medical Center at Ein Kerem, Jerusalem.

The installation of the Cloak of Conscience was decided as part of the arts program of the hospital, which they describe with the following words:
“The pieces of art displayed in our hospital convey the message that soothing the soul is as important to us as healing the body. When we stand before them, or simply pass by them, we absorb their message and they make our day a little brighter”.

Seminar Wrestling With My Conscience – My Hardest Medical Dilemma

As an integral part of the dedication ceremony Hadassah Medical Organization, Hadassah, the Women’s Zionist Organization and Hadassah France organized a special medical ethics panel

“Wrestling With My Conscience – My Hardest Medical Dilemma” where staff members from different religious backgrounds shared the process with which they made their hardest decisions.

The speakers were

Dr. Samir Abu-Gazala, Senior Surgeon, Department of General Surgery, Hadassah Ein-Kerem

Dr. Luminita Eid. Senior Anesthesiologist, Department of Anesthesiology and Critical Care Medicine

Naela Chayav, Director Ambulatory Unit and ICU

Prof. Charles Sprung, Director Emeritus, General Intensive Care Unit, Department of Anesthesiology and Critical Care Medicine

With this high ranking panel Hadassah has focused on Aspects of Conscience which are of great importance for Anna Chromy’s Conscience Project.

This relevance was underlined by the Chromy Award 2018 for Elyakim Rubinstein, former Justice and Deputy President of the Supreme Court of Israel
