The Medical Center is named after "Assaf The Physician" who was the author of the oath for Jewish Physicians written some 1,500 years ago. Our Medical Center is dedicated to the spirit of this great physician.

Assaf Harofeh Medical Center was once used as a military hospital serving a British Army camp before the creation of the State of Israel. Its first known existence was in 1918 when the British conquered land from the Turks during the First World War. With the declaration of the Independence of Israel, the hospital was converted into an Israeli medical facility. Since that time, the Medical Center has played a major role for the citizens of the area, from having been the National Center for victims of Polio during the 50's to being rated as one of the top medical and teaching facilities in Israel today.
