Health Minister Ya’acov Litzman last week initiated a reconciliation meeting between national ambulance service Magen David Adom director- general Eli Bin and heads of the immediate-response organization United Hatzalah to discuss how to establish better cooperation and smoother transitions of patients between the two groups.

UH founder Eli Beer, director Ze’ev Kashash, CEO Moshe Teitelbaum and more than 50 heads of the organization’s branches from around the country met with Litzman and MDA officials in Modi’in.

According to Litzman’s draft agreement, both organizations will receive access to all of the emergency calls that go out throughout the country. In the coming days, teams from both organizations together with ministry representatives will hammer out the remaining details of the agreement and its application in the hopes increased cooperation will save lives.
