Dozens participated in the festive inauguration ceremony of a new branch of the JMC – Jewish Medical Center – in Samarsky St., Dnipro, Ukraine. The new medical clinic will serve the city’s Jewish population during both times of peace and crisis.
The opening ceremony was led by Mr. Shlomo Tereshkevich, who invited and blessed the participating dignitaries to come forward to cut the ribbon. These included Professor Alexander Rodinsky, the Director General of JMC, and Rabbi Zelig Brez, the Director of the Jewish Community of Dnipro.
Mr. Galina Alexandrovna KovalevaIn, a Jewish refugee from Kharkiv, addressed the crowd with her personal story. She received vital therapy that saved her life at the JMC and now wishes to extend a warm thank you to the clinic and its staff.
The Jewish Medical Center (JMC) is a multidisciplinary and high-end clinic operating in Dnipro, under the principle of an individual and holistic approach to the health of each patient.
“We are sure that the opening of a new branch of family health and therapy will make the lives of our patients even more comfortable,” said Professor Alexander Rodinsky. “We are very happy that our dream came true, despite the ongoing situation.”
Following the cutting of the ribbon, Mezuzahs were placed on the front door and on the doors of each room throughout the clinic.
“We would like to take this opportunity,” said Rabbi Zelig Brez, “to thank our long-term and fruitful cooperation with the Boston Jewish community. Together we are creating vital projects such as the new family medicine department at the JMC clinic.”
