Sarah Doron, a former Likud minister without portfolio and MK (1977-1992), died
on Wednesday at the age of 88.
Doron had served since 1988 as volunteer
chairman of the executive of Maccabi Health Services and in the last three
months as honorary chairwoman.
She will be replaced temporarily at the
health fund, which has 1.9 million members, by Prof. Moshe Revah, former
director-general of the Rambam Medical Center. Revah praised her for serving as
“a pillar of the health system with her leadership and management values, but
especially her mercy and respect for people.”
director-general Dr. Ehud Kokia added that “it will be hard to imagine Maccabi
without Sarah. She had an incredible ability to enlist people to lead a
complicated organization while she accessed the best in us all.”
survived by her husband, Aharon, and grandchildren Guy and Ron.
