Patients and visitors at Haifa's Rambam Hospital will have to get used to the sounds of digging and building after a major construction project got underway recently, reports Yediot Haifa. The massive project, which will take three years to complete, will result in a new medical center that aims to be a world leader in its equipment and standards of care. According to the report, in the current, first stage of the project, the focus is on the emergency room area. The emergency room is being enlarged outwards and an extra storey is being built above it. The new floor, which will house an internal medicine ward, will be reinforced against missile attacks. The work is expected to take about a year, and the emergency room has been temporarily moved to another part of the hospital. In later stages, an underground car park and a new children's medical center will be built, while existing buildings will be renovated. A hospital spokesman asked that visitors and employees remain patient during the building work, which will eventually result in a hospital of "outstanding quality."
