My vision is that Galilee Medical Center will be a comprehensive University medical center, providing excellent services and care to the residents of the Galilee, with the highest level of professionalism, quality, availability and accessibility. Our Medical Center will be a teaching and research institution, involved in the community it serves, for the benefit of all Galilee residents..
"Together" - this is what leads both management and employees. Together with mayors and heads of regional councils and government ministries, we are working to development our medical center for the population we serve: 600 thousand people: Jews, Muslims, Christians, Druze and Circassians.
We are proud of our diverse medical staff that represents all sectors of our region's population, treating each and every patient as a human being in need.
