Some 100 department heads from 11 different hospitals gathered at Ichilov Hospital in Tel Aviv Tuesday night to discuss preparations for the founding of a medical union to rival the Israel Medical Association (IMA). Doctors also expressed their dissatisfaction with the agreement recently signed between IMA chair Dr. Leonid Eidelman and the Finance Ministry in late August, which ended a months-long struggle by doctors over wages.
Several doctors at the meeting in Ichilov also called for Dr. Eidelman to resign, and said they supported the residents who were continuing the struggle for their wages, and had submitted their tenders of resignation this last week.
