Former Health Ministry director-general Prof. Roni Gamzu has been appointed director-general of Tel Aviv Sourasky Medical Center, replacing the holder of that office for 22 years, Prof. Gabi Barbash. Before he was director-general of the ministry from 2010 to 2014 under then-Deputy Health Minister (and now Health Minister) MK Ya’acov Litzman, he was director of Ichilov Hospital, the general hospital in Sourasky.

Gamzu, 49, was named to the post following the decision of the public tenders committee headed by Tel Aviv Mayor Ron Huldai, as Sourasky is a government/municipal hospital. He will take up the position immediately. He not only studied and taught medicine and public health, but also received a degree in business administration from Tel Aviv University. An expert in gynecology, obstetrics and fertility, he also received a law degree from TAU.

“I am entering this job with great awe and a deep feeling of having a mission, accompanied by the most professional team in the country. I thank Prof. Gabi Barbash for his huge contribution to the development and advancement of Sourasky, and we are committed to continue and lead... as there is growing competition from private medicine,” he said.
