Providing aid to the embattled country of Ukraine, Israel is currently working on setting up a field hospital that will offer help to those hurt and affected by the war.

Announced by the Health Ministry, the hospital is being built through a collaboration between the state, Sheba, and HMO Clalit Health Services, and will be staffed by their own personnel and that of other Israeli hospitals.

“This is the least we can do to help the Ukrainian people in the face of a brutal Russian invasion,” Health Minister Nitzan Horowitz said on Sunday morning during a visit to the Sheba Medical Center at Tel Hashomer, where the components of the field hospital are being prepared. “It is our moral duty to increase humanitarian aid and extend assistance to the people of Ukraine,” said Horowitz. “We will continue to help as much as necessary to save the lives of citizens whose worlds have been destroyed in an instant,” he added. 

As it stands, the hospital will include an internal-medicine ward for adults and children, an emergency room, a delivery room, and a primary-care clinic, the ministry said. It will also use advanced remote telemedicine technologies spearheaded by Sheba.

Talking about the project, Professor Yitshak Kreiss, director-general of Sheba, said that “it is our personal and national responsibility to extend a helping hand to every human being. We have the knowledge and capability to carry out this mission.”
