See an amazing 3 minute video describing the background of Kaplan Medical Center and our high-tech cardiac advances…
Kaplan Medical Center (KMC), one of Israel's major general hospitals, is a recognized Center of Excellence in major departments including Trauma, ICU, OBGYN and Obstetrics, ENT, Ophthalmology, and Pediatrics.
KMC in Rehovot serves more than one million Israeli citizens (12% of the population). Kaplan is often in the news for life-saving procedures and major advances in medical research.
Please help support these efforts.
Children undergoing cancer therapy in the Rehovot region have, up until now, only had a Day Unit that they could go to with their families. For more involved care or for stays requiring overnights in the hospital, they had to travel to other hospitals in Israel to receive this care.
A unique opportunity has arisen since our Israeli counterpart, Israel Friends of Kaplan Medical Center has just raised 1/2 of the $600,000 needed to create a new comprehensive Pediatric Oncology Unit in the new Pediatric Hospital at KMC.
The American Friends of Kaplan Medical Center Board has taken up the challenge and we are embarking on a campaign to raise the final $300,000 needed to establish this unit.
Our board has raised $35,000 to date and we will offer this as a 1:1 match to new donations to help support this unit. Please help us make this unit a reality for these kids and their families - we would be most appreciative of your support!
“Thank you to the American Friends of Kaplan Medical Center for their generous support of GA 2018 and the Israel Anniversary GA Mission.”

The Kaplan Medical Center (KMC) is located in Rehovot, Israel. It's one of the largest hospitals in the CLALIT network, Israel's largest health services provider.
KMC is a unique combination of a community hospital and an academic medical center with the most advanced technologies
KMC exists to provide medical services to over 1 million Israelis delivering care mostly to those in the middle to lower socio-economic classes.
Help us build the largest high-tech cardiac care center in the Middle East.
At national conferences like the GA, AIPAC, IAC, and while visiting local communities around North America, we find Israelis who tell us, “I was BORN at Kaplan!”
We also hear amazing life-saving stories from Israel visitors and Israelis in America.
If this applies to you, please send us your details — we'd love to hear your personal Kaplan story.
As a teaching hospital affiliated with the Hebrew University Medical School, KMC not only provides medical care to more than a million Israelis, but also trains medical students, nursing students, and radiology technician students.
The hospital helps a large portion of the Israel population, including a large group of immigrants from the former Soviet Union and Ethiopia, a large Sephardic Jewish community, and many minorities.
