Five star shelter protection
Laniado Hospital's shelter protection system was recently awarded the highest rating possible - five "beauty stars" - in the"Shelter in the Civic Space" competition sponsored by the IDF Home Front Command in conjunction with the Council for a Beautiful Israel.
The "Shelter in the Civic Space" competition was designed to determine how pleasant the conditions of shelters can be when meeting stringent standards of protection, as it is possible that long periods of time might be spent in a shelter.
Laniado has about 4,000 square meters of protected areas for patients. Some of the shelters are divisions in hospitalization departments that were built to meet emergency shelter standards. New departments currently under construction will add approximately 7,500 square meters of shelter.
