Pope Saint John Paul II named Holy Family Hospital one of the top priorities for the Roman Catholic Church in the new millennium.

Holy Family Hospital is the only hospital in the West Bank providing: neonatal intensive care, over 45 well woman programs, and long term hospitalization for high risk mothers.  Outreach programs such as the diabetes clinic and mobile van care for populations that have been neglected and untreated.

Palestinian women have for decades faced a multitude of health risks: restricted access to medical services due to occupation, a deteriorating economic situation, traditional cultural beliefs, and lack of adequate services.

 

A Christian Presence in Palestine

Holy Family Hospital in Bethlehem is the premier maternity hospital and newborn critical care center for the Bethlehem region, four United Nations refugee camps and Bedouin encampments in the desert. Offering the poorest and most defenseless families a place of refuge, a place of promise and a place equipped to save their lives.

  • The unemployment rate for people ages 15-24 is 47%, #5 on the world list.
  • Holy Family Hospital employs 139 people. It is common that up to 18 members of a given family are dependent on a single salary of a hospital employee.
  • The West Bank is 2,263 square miles, which is an area slightly smaller than the state of Delaware.
  • 18% of the population is under the poverty line.

In the past many cases of gestational diabetes went undiagnosed because women couldn’t afford to pay for the test in the expensive private labs. Now the Hospital offers universal screening for every pregnant woman.
