Project Spotlight: Fortified Operating Rooms at Soroka Hospital

IFCJ

Soroka Medical Center in Be'er Sheva is the largest hospital in southern Israel. It's a major teaching hospital affiliated with Ben-Gurion University of the Negev, whose campus is adjacent to the hospital.

As soon as rockets begin falling in southern Israel, wounded soldiers and citizens are brought to the hospital. However, during Operation Cast Lead in 2009, Operation Pillar of Defense in 2012, and Operation Protective Edge in 2014, the hospital was forced to temporarily close eight of its operating rooms because they were not fortified against missiles.
