Word of the Director

- Mr. Hadweh

“It is my pleasure to welcome you to the St. Louis French Hospital in Jerusalem. We were founded in 1851 by the Catholic Congregation of Sisters of St. Joseph of the Apparition in response to the needs of the people of Jerusalem.

As a champion of geriatric and palliative healthcare services, we put the patient first and on top of our priorities and always seek to ease their pain and suffering and strive to improve the quality of their lives, in addition to their emotional and spiritual state.

I want to thank our patients and their families for trusting us and for putting all their hopes in our professional team. We promise to keep doing our best to be worthy of your trust and hope.”
