Double the Joy
Two sister-in-law give birth 17 mm apart

Double the family excitement and joy in just 17 minutes at Galilee Medical Center! Arlette Ifergan and Chen Ben Shushan, sisters-in-law from Nahariya, were pregnant at the same time and gave birth 17 minutes apart. Then they shared a double room so family and friends could visit them together. Both women delivered their third child: Arlette has two daughters and gave birth to a boy and Chen has two sons and gave birth to a girl. Congratulations to Arlette, Chen and their families who welcomed their bundles of joy to the world at Galilee Medical Center! 

Galilee Medical Center delivers about 5,500 babies a year.
