On Tuesday, July 4, High court of justice should render a decision to resolve the crisis in the Department of Hematology of the hospital of Jerusalem «Hadassah».
Previously, judge Elyakim Rubinstein, who led the mediation process between the parents of patients and retired from the Department of doctors on the one hand and the General Director of «Adasi» Zeev Rothstein and health Minister Yaakov Litzman on the other hand, told the court that the mediation did not bring results.
Portal Walla! News reports that the mediation process was derailed after the Minister of health Yaakov litzman sent a letter to Elyakim Rubinstein. In a letter to litzman 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.
Informed parents of children hospitalized in the pediatric Hematology unit of the Jerusalem hospital «Hadassah», said that the process of mediation, which obliged the parties the high court, was stalled through the fault of the «ego of the Minister of health».
We will remind, in March of this year from the Department of pediatric Hematology «Adasi» quit not less than six doctors of the highest category, including head of the Department, and several young professionals. The reason for the dismissals was the conflict with the new General hospital Director Professor ze’ev Rothstein, who decided to join the pediatric Hematology unit with the Department of bone marrow transplantation.
It was also reported that Weintraub with colleagues negotiated with the hospital «Shaare Zedek» on opening a similar office, but the hospital still haven’t got permission from the Ministry of health.
