New MRI Unit Opens at Laniado
Since its inception in 1974, Laniado has continued to develop into a world class medical institution. In Israel, MRI’s are heavily regulated by the Ministry of Health. Previously Netanya patients were often sent to other institutions to get an MRI. Appointments were often delayed for many weeks and even months, delaying vital treatment until the diagnosis could be confirmed.
In May, Laniado received approval to purchase and open an MRI Unit, thanks to the generosity of well-known American Jewish philanthropist Daniel Abraham. The new MRI machine is integral to Laniado’s operations, maintaining its position as a world-class hospital with cutting edge medical care.
A special unit was built to house the new MRI machine, as part of the radiology department, headed by Dr. Zev Feuchtwanger. The new MRI Unit received the generous support of IFCJ and Josesf Lebovic from Toronto in collaboration with the Netanya Foundation. Also supporting the initiative were Rabbi Eckstein and Yael Eckstein.
