Rambam Medical Center in Haifa officially enters emergency mode. Its fortified 2,000-bed underground hospital is fully set up and patients are being moved down. The Health Ministry has instructed the medical center to transfer all patients and activity underground within eight to 10 hours.

Rambam is the north’s tertiary care medical center and is responsible for treating all trauma patients — civilian and military — in the region.

Clinics and ambulatory services at the hospital will not be available on Thursday. There will also be no parking at the hospital until further notice.
