Scopus Hospital Reopens
in 1970 With 300 Beds

JERUSALEM (JTA)—Some 300
beds will be available in the re-
stored Hadassah Hospital on Mount
Scopus when it is reopened in
1970, according to Dr. Kalman
Mann, director-general of the
Hadassah Medical - Organization.
The hospital had been closed from
1948 when Jordanian forces seized
the Old City of Jerusalem during
the War of Independence and
barred access to Scopus until June
1967, when Israeli forces took the
city.
Dr. Mann said that the reno-
vated hospital will serve mainly
residents of East Jerusalem in
place of a government hospital in
that part of Jerusalem. All mem-
bers of the staff of the government
hospital will be re-employed by
Hadassah either at the medical
center at Ein Karem or on Mount
Scopus. This arrangement will
bring to 5 per cent the proportion
of Arab personnel employed by
Hadassah, Dr. Mann said.
