Leaders of Magen David Adom (Red Shield of David) societies in the U.S., Canada, Britain and South Africa joined health minister Mordechai Gur at a ceremony Thursday marking the laying of the cornerstone of the MDA’s national blood services center at the Sheba Hospital at Tel Hashomer.

The $12-million facility is to be the largest and most advanced of its kind in the Middle East. It will include the country’s central blood bank and a national training center.

It will also be used to fractionate blood into components which are used in hospitals and clinics.
