Our Mission

Our Mission

 

Maintain, enhance and grow American Friends of ALYN Hospital’s platform to serve the challenge of raising funds for ALYN Hospital, while concurrently raising visibility for ALYN as a premier global institution for pediatric rehabilitation.

 

American Friends of ALYN Hospital has proudly supported the hospital since 1932. ALYN is Israel’s premier rehabilitation center, providing rehabilitation to children and adolescents with both congenital and acquired physical disabilities. Since its humble beginnings as a polio clinic, the overriding mission of ALYN has been to help each child reach the highest possible levels of mobility and independence.

 

ALYN treats children with disabilities caused by neuromuscular diseases as well as the after-effects of trauma and head injuries caused by car accidents, acts of terror, cerebral palsy, spina bifida, congenital deformities, general pediatric orthopedic issues, premature births and respiratory dependency.  Many children come to ALYN to learn how to cope with post-cancer trauma and severe burns. Every single patient benefits from a customized rehab program that helps each child reach his or her maximum possible level of mobility and independence.

 

Over 3,500 children a year come to ALYN as inpatients and another 25,000 receive outpatient and ambulatory care. The hospital treats all children, regardless of religion or nationality.

 

You are our cherished partners, supporting the work of the dedicated staff made up of multidisciplinary professionals, representing a variety of medical and clinical specialties at ALYN Hospital.

 

ALYN Hospital gives the children in its care the tools to turn disabilities into abilities.
