Mr. Nadav Chen, CEO of Laniado, congratulated all the staff who worked in the Corona Departments during 2020 and said “I am not surprised by this survey! As someone who has seen with their own eyes your extraordinary dedication, the professionalism and empathy you have demonstrated over the long months, I was sure that you would also get an official seal of approval from the professionals in the Ministry of Health. I hope you will not have to stand such a complex test again in the future, but I am sure that if you face this test again – you will withstand it with valor! “
