Departments and Outpatient Clinics

Carmel Hospital’s Friends Association

The Carmel Medical Center Friends Association is a non-profit organization founded 25 years ago to foster and promote the development of the Medical Center in various fields.

Carmel Friends Association

​such as:

  • Construction and renovation projects;

  • Purchasing advanced medical equipment necessary for the departments, for the patients' wellbeing and for promoting quality medicine;

  • Encouraging medical research among the Hospital's staff.

The board members and trustees are volunteers, some of whom come from the ranks of Haifa's public figures in the areas of economy, banking, politics and society. All of them contribute time and energy to push forward the Carmel Medical Center.

Public relations, sponsored by the Association, are the main vehicle for raising funds and public support. These activities include organizing events for the general public and for the community of supporters, such as an annual gala night dedicated to upgrading or purchasing advanced medical instruments for the hospital's many departments.

All profits from such events are invested in the patients' wellbeing.

The Friends' Association is a registered association and it holds a certificate of proper management by the Registrar of Associations. Therefore, all the donations it receives in Israel are tax exempt by law.
