Hadassah Hospital dedicates breast health center


JERUSALEM (JTA) — Hadassah Hospital in Jerusalem has dedicated a new breast health center.

The Marlene Greenebaum Multidisciplinary Diagnostic Breast Center at the hospital’s Ein Kerem location will serve as a one-stop shop for women’s breast care needs.

Marlene and Stewart Greenebaum of Baltimore, Md., donated $1.4 million to fund the center and attended Tuesday’s dedication. Marlene Greenebaum is a breast cancer survivor and Stewart Greenebaum, a real estate developer, is a former member of the Hadassah Medical Center board of directors.

“Marlene’s experience made it important to us to help other women,” Stewart Greenebaum said. The couple was accompanied to Jerusalem by some of the Baltimore area’s leading cancer experts who shared their knowledge with their Israeli colleagues at a morning seminar on breast cancer research that preceded the dedication.

At the dedication, Marlene Greenebaum expressed her pleasure in being able to help Israeli women with breast cancer share her experience in the best possible manner – to receive outstanding medical care in a personalized and dignified manner. Well-known for their support of medical, communal and Jewish causes in Baltimore,the Greenebaums also are benefactors of the University of Maryland Greenebaum Cancer Center.
