The Saban Birth
and Maternity Center
The Saban Birth and Maternity Center is a joint project of the Saban
Family, Clalit Health Services, and the Ministry of Health
In 2008, the Saban Center for Pediatric Medicine was inaugurated
at Soroka, and its two buildings form a medical complex for pediatrics and
obstetrics / gynecology that is among the most advanced in the country. The
establishment of the two adjacent centers was made possible by the generous
donation of Haim and Cheryl Saban.
The operation of the new complex represents a
true milestone in the history of the Division of Obstetrics and Gynecology,
replacing the old crowded delivery room, which was built in the 1960s.
Specially designed and with vastly improved
conditions, the Center offers residents of the Negev an exceptional birthing
experience and the most advanced medical and hospitalization services available.
The building was constructed to a very high standard, with ultramodern
facilities and medical equipment, including two new emergency rooms (one
maternity and one gynecology), advanced operating rooms, and 25 spacious,
bombproof private delivery rooms.
The Saban Center was dedicated in November
2011 in a moving ceremony in the presence of Cheryl and Haim Saban, Clalit
Health Services officials, and local dignitaries and public
The Division's obstetrics
and gynecology services are provided at The Saban Maternity Center in the
