In January 1996, Beilinson and Hasharon Hospitals merged to create Rabin Medical Center, named in honor of the late Prime Minister, Yitzhak Rabin.
Yitzhak Rabin was one of the most distinguished statesmen in the history of the State of Israel. It was he who in life and death exemplified the ethics of commitment to high standards of excellence and adherence to goals. These values continue to guide us in our work and serve as our model for care for all patients who seek our help.
Special relationship with the Rabin Family
Over the years a unique and special relationship was established between the hospital and the Rabin family.
As a tribute to Mrs. Leah Rabin on her 70th birthday, the newborn nursery unit was dedicated in her name, and the late King Hussein and Queen Noor of Jordan paid tribute by making a generous donation.
Mrs. Rabin was treated at RMC's Recanati Center for Internal Medicine and Research. . During that time, a warm and friendly relationship developed between the staff , and Mrs. Rabin. Later, 100 trees were planted in her memory, and an additional tree in honor of Re'ut, her granddaughter, who was born on the day Mrs. Rabin died.
In a moving ceremony held at Rabin Medical Center, Itzhak and Leah Rabin’s daughter, Daliah Rabin-Pelossof, planted an olive tree in memory of her mother. Dozens of family and friends were present at the event, together with the management of the hospital and staff of the Recanati Center.
Daliah Rabin-Pelossof spoke with great feeling about the strong bond Leah had with Rabin Medical Center, and of the link between the olive tree, the symbol of peace, and the yearning of the Rabin family to achieve peace in the entire region.
