The Health Ministry has agreed to allow the Maccabi health fund mother-and-baby ("Tipat Halav") clinic in Hod Hasharon to stay open after planning to close it down last week, reports local.co.il. The decision to close the clinic - the only Maccabi mother-and-baby clinic in the city - upset numerous parents, and Mayor Hai Adiv met with ministry and health fund officials to plead for it to stay open. The ministry reportedly agreed on condition that the city provides an appropriate building for it by 2009, something the city promised to do seven years ago.
