Clalit knows that children are our future, and ensures their well-being in the most modern and advanced facilities
In recent years Clalit has made marked advances in providing special care and unique facilities for the medical treatment of children and adolescents, the major achievement being the 224-bed Schneider Children’s Medical Center of Israel (SCMCI) located in Petach Tikva The SCMCI, open to all children in Israel and the Middle East regardless of ethnic origin, is one of the finest institutions of its kind internationally, offering unique medical approaches, humanitarian objectives, and an outstanding medical staff
The SCMCI is the only facility in Israel and the region providing a full range of medical specialties and sub-specialties for infants and children from birth to the age of 18. These specialties include pediatric hematology/oncology, bone marrow, transplantation, organ transplants, ICU and NICU, pediatric surgical sub-specialties, cardiac surgery and catheterization, dialysis, diabetes and endocrinology, pulmonology, and CF, child development and child-life programs and many others.
The planners of this tertiary medical facility understood that the goal of providing the best possible care for children required a building that would be totally child-friendly, with a non-threatening, human environment – soft lights, wall-to-wall carpeting, aquariums and playrooms.
In order to implement its total scheme for children’s health care, Clalit has established a national network of pediatric community health centers, combining primary and specialty pediatric care, including day care, under one roof. A number of these centers are fully affiliated with the SCMCI, and staff consultations and medical exchanges are regularly conducted.
