This morning (March 16, 2021) the Hillel Yaffe Medical Center was bathed in a special light, with a celebratory area in honor of Good Deeds Day. Jointly organized by the Hadera Municipality and the hospital, Hadera Municipality employees came to give out coffee, baked goods, cold drinks, and a special box of chocolates to the hospital employees. The area was decorated with balloons and a red carpet, with pleasant music, including live performances, all day.
The hospital employees happily responded to the surprise, and over 1,000 of them came to the area during the day and were given the gifts. The municipality employees too, headed by Hadera Mayor Zvika Gendelman and CEO Yaakov Zigdon, were delighted to take on the role of waiters for a short time and spoil the hospital workers with coffee and cake.

At the same time, a select staff of hospital employees from the various departments, who volunteer within the community every year, decided this year to focus on the coronavirus patients and went into the departments equipped with balloons, gifts, and cakes, to cheer up the patients.
Representatives from Rotary Caesarea, teachers from the Rona Ramon School in Kfar Yona, and representatives from the Emek Hefer Regional Council Community Center, came with a variety of surprises and gifts and filled the Pediatrics Department’s Gift Room with all kinds of good things. The housekeeping and cleaning staff also enjoyed a large number of candies and artwork from the children of the Givol Democratic School in Givat Olga. The celebrations were joined by Chabad representatives who distributed shemura matzos and illustrated Haggadot to the employees – a token of their thanks and appreciation for their hard and challenging work during the coronavirus outbreak period.
