Shaare Zedek’s Weinstock Department of Emergency Medicine on the Fanya Gottesfeld Heller Floor (2nd Floor, located underground) is Jerusalem’s busiest ER, treating 135,500 patients so far this year – an increase of 6,500 over last year’s record total – and most of those wounded by the recent spate of attacks.

In and around Jerusalem through the past few weeks, Palestinians have launched terror attacks against Israelis with firearms, axes, knives and by running them down with their vehicles.  As Jerusalem’s busiest and most respected emergency and trauma center, the renowned “Hospital with a Heart” has successfully treated  victims of every incident, including Rabbi Yehuda Glick, who was shot at point blank range nearly a month ago and was saved by the doctors, nurses and staff of Shaare Zedek Medical Center.

Fanya Gottesfeld Heller, who dedicated the 2nd Floor in 2003, was honored by The American Committee for Shaare Zedek Medical Center on Wednesday evening, November 19, along with her children Ben and Beth Heller and Dr. Jacqueline Heller, with the Keter Yerushalayim Award.
