The S. Daniel Abraham Geriatric Center

“Beit Avraham”


Mr. Mordechai Kirshenbaum

Administrative Director: 

Mr. Mordechai Kirshenbaum                       



The geriatrics department located adjacent to Laniado Hospital is called “Beit Avraham,” in honor of S. Daniel Abraham.

Beit Avraham was founded in 1983 in order to provide a solution for those in Netanya and the surrounding area in need of nursing care

The professional staff offers high-level services combined with knowledge, skills, dedication, and the commitment to honor and preserve the patients’ rights. The staff is especially skilled in listening to the patients, understanding their feelings, and providing for their needs. Beit Avraham offers a wide range of activities (see list below). In 2003, Beit Avraham moved into a new, modern building equipped with the latest technology. This was made possible thanks to donations, including funds from the Conference on Jewish Claims Against Germany.



Beit Avraham has three departments:
In Nursing Care Departments I and II, the patients are referred and subsidized either privately or by the Israel Ministry of Health. Nursing Care Department III is for the most complex situations demanding an especially high level of nursing care, and the patients are referred by the various health funds. All of the departments have spacious rooms designed for one or two patients. Each room has a private bathroom and shower. Each department has a large hall for meals and activities, a large balcony, and sitting areas.

The building has a sample apartment for rehearsing the return home, for patients who are able to return to their own homes after their stay.
