Hadassah’s Pediatrics Corridor Gets a Face Lift


The once dark and gloomy walls in the corridor of Hadassah Hospital Ein-Kerem’s Pediatrics Department have undergone a complete “face lift,” thanks to the generosity of Artist Ilan Shaul, who brightened them with vivid wall paintings.   “It was my honor and pleasure to take part in this project,” comments Mr. Shaul. “This space is used by very special people–the children. For us, who worked on the project, it is now a unique memory.”

Participating in the ribbon cutting ceremony (foreground, left to right): Esti Katz, Hadassah’s Director of Patient and Family Welfare; Prof. Shlomo Mor-Yosef, Hadassah Medical Center Director General; Michael Dayan, Chief Executive Officer, Tambur Painting; Ilan Shaul, Artist; and Dr. Yuval Weiss, Director, Hadassah Hospital-Ein Kerem. Rear (left to right): Ehud Shauloff, Administrative Director; Amitai Rotem, Marketing Director; and Sami Alcalay, Director of Special Projects at Hadassah.

The idea for this project came from Esti Katz, who is in charge of Patient and Family Welfare at Hadassah. Sami Alcalay, Director of Special Projects at Hadassah, recruited the artist and secured the donation of paint by Tambur Painting. The employees of Hadassah’s construction and maintenance division, as well as Hadassah volunteers, helped to bring the walls to life.
