The top-ranking professional at the Hadassah Medical Organization in Jerusalem is resigning.
Dr. Shlomo Mor-Yosef, the director general of Hadassah hospital, will resign this week, Hadassah sources told The Jerusalem Post. Mor-Yosef, a gynecologist by training, has held the position since 2001 and was the spokesman for the hospital when Israel’s Prime Minister Ariel Sharon fell victim to a massive stroke four years ago.
Mor-Yosef’s resignation comes on the heels of the resignations of two high-ranking officials at Hadassah’s Zionist youth group, Young Judaea.
Young Judaea’s director, Rabbi Ramie Arian, and the director of its Year Course program, Keith Berman, announced they were stepping down following a series of funding cuts and layoffs at the organization, the Post reported.
Hadassah’s president Nancy Falchuk just stepped into JTA’s offices, so we will have more shortly.
