He said that the separation of the left «only» 30 patients and that the opening of such offices in the hospital «Shaare Zedek,» as required by the parents «ADSI», is not justified, since, according to the head of the Ministry, it would be wrong to open another pediatric haemato-Oncology Department in Jerusalem, when there is a need to open a branch in the North of the country.
