The Hadassah Pediatric Chronic Disease Center located at the Hadassah Mount Scopus Campus is dedicated to assisting children and their families to cope with the challenges of chronic disease. The multidisciplinary staff provides holistic and integrated care with the emphasis on providing state of the art therapeutics with culturally appropriate and psychosocially oriented caring.  A special focus of the Center is fostering peaceful co-existence which is so important in a region that is war-torn.

The Center has multiple units specializing in specific diseases including cystic fibrosis, feeding disorders, inborn errors of metabolism, Down’s syndrome, diabetes, intellectual disabilities, adoption and rheumatologic disorders.   Most recently, the Center has opened a Supportive and Palliative Care Unit which assists families in coping with children with complex medical conditions that are life-threatening.
