The D. Dan & Betty Kahn Foundation Pediatric Pulmonary Institute cares for children with asthma, cystic fibrosis, and other types of lung diseases, including those who are hospitalized at Rambam’s Ruth Children's Hospital. In its new facility, the Institute handles over 4000 ambulatory visits per year, and performs a wide array of procedures, including spirometry, focusing on noninvasive assessment of preschool children, lung clearance index, exercise test; sweat test and bronchoscopies. We also serve as one of the five Israeli Cystic Fibrosis centers.
The new facility enables us to work as a multi-disciplinary team including pediatric pulmonary physicians, nurses, a dietician, a physical therapist, a psychologist, social workers, and a clinical pharmacist. With this team we try to provide a holistic approach to the child with chronic respiratory illness, and his or her family. Our mission is to improve the respiratory health of children through high quality clinical care, education, and research while always placing the child at the center of a pain free healing process.
