Adjustments to the public transportation system in the Gush Dan region will harm hospital patients, Sheeba Medical Center director Prof. Ze'ev Rotstein wrote to Transportation Minister Yisrael Katz on Wednesday.

Rothstein argued that the alterations will likely affect mainly low-income families, elderly patients, and handicapped patients. The hospital director said that the reforms were made without any prior consultation with any hospital official.
