“Rehabilitation goes beyond medicine. It is an emotional journey shared by our patients and our staff” said Prof Isabella Schwartz, head of Rehabilitation at Hadassah Mount Scopus.
Immensely grateful to the Gandel family for their generous support, Prof Schwarz affirms the Gandel Rehabilitation Center will revolutionise rehabilitation services at Hadassah and nationwide.
With the patient at the centre of everything we do, the new Rehabilitation Center has been thoughtfully crafted to provide every aspect of care required."

The magnificent eight-story edifice was designed for the diverse needs of Jerusalem’s patient population. Examples of patient-centric care include on-site treatment for dialysis patients, and isolation rooms for immunodeficient patients. These convalescents will receive critical rehabilitation.
“At the heart of our philosophy is the conviction that successful rehabilitation is the balance and synchronisation of therapies - that coordination, integration, and care are one and the same process,” says Schwartz. The department’s services comprise inpatient hospitalisation, outpatient care, specialised centres, and clinics. The new Center will offer two hydrotherapy pools; a robotic therapy centre; a rooftop healing garden; and a technological incubator, setting a new standard in Israel.
With her expertise in motion and gait, Professor Schwartz has established multiple research collaborations with international partners. In addition, she serves as a coordinator for a notable Horizon Research Consortium focused on “Fall Prevention.” The consortium includes 20 professional staff members from European countries and is expected to have a significant impact on the field, extending far beyond its initial scope.
