The Elder Care and Palliative Medicine Institute

There is an urgent need for elder care and palliative medicine in Palestine and Israel and Augusta Victoria Hospital is leading the way. In 2019, the Lutheran World Federation expects to secure the final permits and begin building a 144-bed facility for elder care and palliative care that will focus largely on the alleviation of symptoms of serious illnesses and the side effects of their treatments. This facility, to be located to the east of AVH, will nearly double the capactiy of the hospital and will help both patients and their families cope with the difficulties of their circumstances.
