Helmsley Trust awards $18 million grant for new research tower at Haifa hospital


US Trust has awarded an $18 million grant for the construction of a new medical research tower on the Rambam campus and the University of Haifa, Israel.

The Leona M. and Harry B. Helmsley Charitable Trust said the ‘Helmsley Health Discovery Tower’ will host medical research and innovation projects at the local, national, and global levels.

The Helmsley Health Discovery Tower will enable unique collaboration between the University of Haifa, Rambam Health Care Campus, and the Technion-Israel Institute of Technology, and will support strategic partnerships with the medical device, pharmaceutical, and information technology industries.

Rambam Health Care Campus director Professor Rafi Beyar says “The Health Discovery Tower, with its unique combination of medicine, technology, and humanitarian values, will be the cornerstone of our vision moving forward, enabling us to help not only the people of Israel but to impart critical knowledge across the globe.”

The 20-story Tower will include several leading initiatives in Haifa. The Innovation Partnership Center will host start-up companies and early stage initiatives, such as incubators and technological working spaces with health science entrepreneurs. This Center will build on Israel’s strengths as a start-up nation, and enable the development of patient-centered innovations.

The Technion-Israel Institute of Technology will have facilities for medical engineering activities, focusing on biomedical engineering innovation.
