The general surgery wards are on the fourth floor of the central admittance building of the Kaplan Medical Center and includes two wards, north and south. The wards have 70 beds.
The wards operate a wide range of outpatient clinic for consulting, evaluation and follow up: breast health center, obesity clinic, liver surgery clinic, proctology clinic, hernia clinic and general surgery clinics.
The operations are conducted in the operating rooms which are in the second floor of the central admittance building and in the surgical outpatient clinic, on the building’s basement floor. Next to the recovery room on the second floor there is a waiting area for families, where the surgeons go and update the families after the surgery is completed.
The division includes a few professional units, specializing in specific surgery fields:
At the same floor we have the unit for vascular surgeries (in the north wing) and the plastic surgery unit (on the south wing)
The surgical wards also have an emergency and trauma surgery unit and an elective surgery unit.
