Divisions and Departments - Surgical Division - Anesthesiology and Recovery - Operating Rooms


The anesthesiology department has been an integral part of Nahariya’s Western Galilee Hospital since its inception.  The department’s three main goals are:

1.      Treatment of patients before, during and after surgery or painful procedures.

2.      Teaching and training of residents based on a structured residency program. 

3.      Promoting medical research.

Each year, approximately 14,000 operations are performed at the hospital, half of which are emergency surgeries.

Approximately 1,400 operations are performed on an outpatient basis.

The anesthesiology department treats surgical patients in the following fields:  general surgery, pediatric surgery, orthopedics, urology, thoracic surgery, E.N.T., ophthalmology, plastic surgery, spinal cord surgery, cardiovascular surgery and gynecology.

The department plays a unique and fascinating role in the obstetrics field.

Additionally, the department treats patients at the dental clinic, gastroenterology institute, the invasive imaging unit, and basically every place in the hospital where a patient requires sedation and analgesia and/or invasive treatment that requires the skills of an anesthesiologist such as inserting a central line for dialysis patients, spinal taps, etc.

The anesthesiology department’s physicians are skilled in all types of internationally accepted general and local anesthesiology and sedation techniques.
