ZIV MEDICAL CENTER
Israel's northernmost hospital
One of the future Jewish State first hospitals, the 350 beds, 22 intensive care beds, 47 medical departments and seven operating theaters was founded in 1910 playing a very important role in dealing with the Tuberculosis epidemic in those days.
From a small clinic for the Jews of the city of Sefad the hospital grew into the modern university medical center that it is today, a facility with research laboratories, a nursing school and sophisticated medical devices and specialized equipment.
