JNN News, October 18, 2018
In the presence of Deputy Minister of Health Yaakov Litzman and other dignitaries, Howard Milstein inaugurated the Irma and Paul Milstein Heart Center in Hadassah Ein Kerem, Jerusalem in honor of his parents. The new center occupies the entire third floor, 4500 square meters, of the Sarah Wetsman Davidson Hospital Tower.
It makes use of the world's most sophisticated medical technology and more than doubles the department’s previous capacity to treat heart patients. This includes 11 intensive care private rooms plus 11 post- catheterization beds and another 32 beds in the cardiac ward. Irma Milstein is a member of Hadassah, the Women's Zionist Organization of America. She and her late husband Paul, from New York, earmarked their ten million dollar donation for the heart center. Prof. Chaim Lotan, Director of the Heart Institute at Hadassah Medical Organization, said: "The new center, catapults us fifty years ahead. Several decades ago we established the most advanced cardiac intensive care unit in Israel; this new Heart Center covers more than four times the space of our previous department.
