“Healers,” a portrait series of some of our healthcare providers, highlights the diversity and coexistence of our tapestry of caregivers with different backgrounds, cultures and religions.
In “Healers,” we see each caregiver in an interruption from his/her professional to personal makeup as a human being in his/her own right. This is in line with our vision — to be a professional and humane healthcare institution. “Healers” also aims to capture our driving focus “Adam l’Adam,” or “People to People” medicine. At Galilee Medical Center, each person — healthcare provider, patient or visitor — is regarded solely as a human being no matter who they are, where they are from, what their background is or their religious affiliation.
“Healers” was unveiled by Dr. Tsvi Sheleg, Deputy Director of Galilee Medical Center, in the presence of Partnership2Gether Western Galilee Steering Committee members and the portrait subjects. This striking photography exhibit is on display in our Surgical Wing for all to enjoy. A big shout out to our partners in this joint initiative: Photographer Tom Casalini from Indianapolis, IN; Partnership2Gether Western Galilee (with special thanks to Judy Yuda, Director of Partnerships at JAFI, and Noa Friedman Epstein, Arts & Community Task Force Coordinator); and to our International Affairs Department, headed by Aya Kipershlak, for coordinating the project. Come on by and have a look at this striking exhibit for yourself.
