Rambam Health Care Campus is Northern Israel's premier hospital, dedicated to the health and healing of the people of Northern Israel and inspired by the teachings of Rabbi Mose ben Maimon. Established in 1938, we celebrated our 80th anniversary in 2019.

More Than a Hospital

Rambam Health Care Campus is a 1000-bed world-class teaching hospital. The patient population is diverse, as Rambam is the major tertiary (referral) medical center for all of Northern Israel, including12 district hospitals and defense and peacekeeping forces stationed in the region. Serving more than two million residents and others referred from all over Israel, the Mediterranean region, and around the world, Rambam is strategically located in Haifa on the Mediterranean coast and plays a critical role in the healthcare of the region’s residents, in addition to making a major contribution to the economy of the north.

History

History

The name “Rambam” was only applied to Rambam Health Care Campus in 1952 However, Rambam’s history pre-dates the modern State of Israel.​​​
 
Few people know that our history began with the laying of a cornerstone for a small Catholic convent in 1888. That building, “the Stone House,” is still used by Rambam Health Care Campus today. It transitioned from a convent, to an Ottoman military hospital, and back to a convent. The Stone House was later abandoned, and was eventually sold to the State of Israel in 1961. It was renovated and administrative offices and various medical services operate within its walls.
