About Us

 The American Friends of the Kaplan Medical Center was incorporated in 2008 as a non-for-profit 501 (c)(3), tax-exempt organization for the purpose of  representing, developing and promoting in the United States the Kaplan Medical Center (KMC), located in Rehovot, Israel. The KMC is one of the largest hospitals in the network of Clalit.

Chaired by Prof. Jacques S. Abramowicz, AFKMC, the current Board of Directors, Haya Ascher-Svanum, Prof. Steven L. Warsof, Prof. Peter A. Gottlieb, Annie Abramowicz and Prof. Joachim Yahalom, composed of some of very prominent U.S. physicians, scientists and lay leaders,  is actively seeking to enlarge its ranks and to garner an ever-growing support of the KMC nationwide. See AFKMC Lay Leadership. 

During the last year, we held a number of community-wide events, resulting in an increased financial support for the KMC’s projects and medical equipment purchase.
