On Tuesday evening, His Excellency Isaac Herzog, President of the State of Israel, and his wife Michal Herzog visited the Nazareth Hospital to witness the launch of the Nazareth Trust 160th Anniversary celebrations.
Here’s a photo of the Trust’s CEO Richard Mayhew showing the President and his wife around the hospital.
Richard also had the opportunity to explain to the President the Scottish roots of the Trust and said:
“We are proud of our 160-year history, and we are delighted, Mr President, that you are here today to celebrate with us. Our Christian faith is at the heart of our organisation, expressed through the care for the sick physically, emotionally, and spiritually. Health is a unifying factor of this hospital. Our staff and patients, perhaps uniquely in this hospital, would be representative of all the different faiths, of all the faith traditions, of all the political persuasions of this land, but united as one in treating the sick.”
Isaac and Michal Herzog visited the hospital to express their gratitude to the management and hospital staff for the outstanding medical services provided to the region, especially during the ongoing pandemic.
Isaac Herzog said:
“The Nazareth Hospital is distinguished by faith, a faith in God where the three religions believe in saving lives and treating those who need it. Thank you for your great work serving the community with His grace”
We’re so honoured that the President could visit us to learn more about everything we do at the Nazareth Trust.
