The Ambassador of the Kingdom of Bahrain to Israel Khaled al-Jalahma met with Bnai Zion Medical Center's CEO Dr. Ohad Hochman on Monday as part of a collaboration between medical centers in Bahrain and Bnai Zion.

Al-Jalahma was visiting the medical center as part of its 100th-anniversary celebrations that were being held by Bnai Zion's Friends Association.

During his meeting with Hochman, which was initiated by Executive Director of the Friends' Association Tom Alexandron, the two discussed various ways the collaboration could be expanded like mutual delegations, conferences and knowledge exchange.

Throughout his visit, al-Jalahman was taken on a tour of the facilities together with his wife Nof. The two were shown the protected new emergency department which is set to open soon, the innovative robot pharmacy and the Kinneret research data cloud that collects information from Israeli governmental hospitals.
