During her recent visit in Israel, Zoë Riekes, President of AFGMC, spent a day at Galilee Medical Center. During her visit, Zoë got a first-hand view of some of the projects supported by Friends of GMC, such as the new Women’s Health Wing and the new Simulation Center. Zoë visited the new Cardiology Department named for Irving and Cherna Moskowitz and met with Dr. Attar, Head of the Department.

The new Play Area in the Pediatric Department was just about to be installed and has now been completed, soon to be officially opened. Zoë also visited the art exhibition in the new Women’s Wing and was updated regarding the hospital’s efforts and emphasis on environments that promote healing.  At a special breakfast hosted by Mrs. Raya Strauss Ben-Dror, President of Friends of GMC at her home in Nahariya, a discussion concerning strengthening the relations between AFGMC and GMC was held. Before ending the meeting Zoë was awarded a certificate of appreciation for her long-standing commitment and contribution to GMC.
