Rambam Health Care Campus

UNDERGROUND HOSPITAL SHIELDS NORTHERN ISRAEL

Israel faces real threats – from the Hezbollah in Lebanon, the Syrian military and emergent Iranian nuclear capabilities. The worlds largest fortified underground emergency hospital has been built on Rambam Health Care Campus in Haifa, and is designed to protect patients and staff against conventional and non-conventional warfare

The initiative for a fortified hospital came about following the Second Lebanon War seven years ago, states Professor Rafi Beyar, Director and CEO of Rambam Health Care Campus. The hospital itself was under missile attack, and although no one was hurt, we realized that we couldnt rely on miracles anymore.
