From Nahariya to Beverly Hills – it’s good to have friends that want to help us close the large gap in healthcare services between the north and central Israel! A first time fundraising event was held in Beverly Hills, Los Angeles with Jewish community film industry leaders, to benefit Galilee Medical Center. Ms. Raya Strauss Ben Dror, President of Friends of Galilee Medical Center (FGMC), Dr. Eyal Sela, Director of our Department of Otolaryngology (ENT) and Head and Neck Surgery; and Amir Yarchi, CEO of FGMC represented Galilee Medical Center at the prestigious event hosted by Phil Blazer, of JLTV

The LA event came in the middle of a marathon week of meetings with major donors and foundations from coast to coast including New York, Cleveland, Youngstown, Dayton, Cincinnati, and Los Angeles in coordination with American FGMC. According to Amir, “the American Jewish community understands the need to support Galilee Medical Center, located on the front-line of Israel’s border with Lebanon, and the urgent need to reduce the gap in healthcare services between the center of Israel and its periphery to maintain the country’s national resilience.”
