The Zholty Children’s House in the medical grounds of the Sheba Medical Center, Rachashei Lev’s new initiative for children undergoing daily medical treatment.
The Children’s House helps families to keep the family unit together at this trying time in their lives, and to receive professional support and assistance. The Children’s House enables the children to recuperate from their grueling experiences at the hospital, to smile and have happy times despite the pain, and to defeat the dreaded disease. The Children’s House campus: the main building is the center of the activity, and includes a dining room, reception, seating areas, cafeteria, library, games and music rooms, and computers and television sets, available to visitors at any time of the day or night.

Adjacent to the main building are two residential buildings containing 20 furnished suites of 75 square meters each, equipped and accessible to the physically challenged. Each suite has a child’s room, parents room, living room and kitchenette, bath and shaded balcony.
