His Excellency Minister of Health Dr. Jawad Awad urged BASR to expand its rehabilitation services, admiring the distinguished efforts made by BASR multidisciplinary team to promote quality health care in Palestine.

The Minister of Health Dr. Awad delivered his speech during a visit to BASR main facility, accompanied with a high ranking delegation from the Ministry of Health, whereby a conference was held with BASR’s management team who illustrated BASR’s recent achievements and major needs.

In addition, His Excellency proclaimed BASR as the largest national hospital specialized in rehabilitation in the Palestinian Territories, declaring that the Ministry is highly interested in supporting BASR as much as possible.

In return, BASR’s Vice Chair of the Board, Mr. Musa Darwish, welcomed the Minister and discussed with him BASR’s future plan for establishing a specialized pediatric hospital and expanding the medical and rehabilitation services to reach out to more marginalized areas, especially in the northern regions of the West Bank.

On the other hand, BASR’s management team discussed with the Minister issues related to referrals of patients from the southern region to BASR, particularly those in need of ophthalmic and orthopedic surgical intervention, instead of referring them to foreign hospitals. An official letter in this regard was handed to His Excellency.

At the end of his visit, the Minister of Health Dr. Awad took a tour in rehabilitation and surgery departments, expressing his appreciation of the quality of services rendered by BASR’s staff.
