Hadassah Medical Organization (HMO) pioneered the development of health care standards and practices in Israel at the Mt Scopus Hospital, founded in 1939, and the Ein Kerem Hospital, founded in 1961.
The Clinical Trials Unit (CTU) was established in July 2016 by the Research Fund of the Hadassah Medical Organization to increase the activity and quality of clinical trials.
