Dr. Mas'ad Barhoom will run the Western Galilee Hospital in Nahariya.
Dr. Mas'ad Barhoom, the director of the Italian Hospital in Nazareth for the last eight years, has been named the first Arab director of a state-owned hospital - Western Galilee Hospital in Nahariya. He will head one of only eight state-owned general hospitals in the country. The Health Ministry announced the appointment of the 47-year-old Haifa native on Wednesday. Barhoom grew up in Shfaram and specialized in family medicine and health-system management. Health Minister Ya'acov Ben-Yizri congratulated the doctor on winning the public tender and said he was certain Barhoom had been chosen "on his own merit and not as a representative of a sector. Nevertheless, I am sure that Dr. Barhoom's choice will only strengthen the connection between Jews and Arabs in the North, and I am sure he will advance the hospital in Nahariya as he brought forward the Italian Hospital in Nazareth."
