GMC Long-Term Vision
Galilee Medical Center is always striving to meet and maintain the highest standard of care.
In order to do this, capital improvements must be made, and large-scale projects must be established.
Read below to learn GMC’s long-term plans to remain a state-of-the-art medical center, meeting the needs of the Western Galilee community and all the residents it serves.
Galilee Medical Center: The Next Ten Years
For over 50 years, Galilee Medical Center has provided high-level health services to a diverse community of more than 600,000 people made up of Jews, Muslims, Christians and Druze – and all this while operating in a zone close to hostile borders. GMC has developed secure infrastructure which has allowed it to operate even under direct missile attack (as in 2006) and has grown significantly in its capacity to provide care to an underserved population suffering from high rates of disease, from diabetes to heart disease, despite having fewer doctors and beds than facilities in other parts of the country.
GMC is doing well…and it is constantly striving to do even better. The long-term vision developed along with the Friends of the Galilee Medical Center, is to raise funds for a $100,000,000 master development plan (with funds matched by the Ministry of Health) in order to serve its community better, including in times of heightened conflict.
Here are some initiatives included in the GMC’s Long-Term Plan:
- Increasing the number of secure operating theaters
- Completing the second phase for a state-of-the-art Gynecology Department
- Fortifying critical units of the Internal Medicine Division
- Renovating the Dialysis Center
