HERITAGE FLORIDA JEWISH NEWS, FEBRUARY 28, 2014 PAGE 7. A. Hadassah reaffirms its commitment to the Hadassah Medical Organization NEW YORK--In the wake of Hadassah Medical Orga- nization's announcement that it must restructure, the national board of Hadassah, the Women's Zionist Organi- zation of America (HWZOA) resolves to help the hospitals emerge from their financial crisis and assures supporters that all contributions to the Hadassah Medical Organiza- tion (HMO) will be used solely for intended purposes. HWZOA sent a message to HMO and those it serves expressing solidarity during HMO's restructuring process. HMO's board announced on Feb. 7 that it would apply to the court for a relief under Section 350 of Israeli Companies Law. Commenting on the situ- ation, Hadassah National President Marcie Natan said, "These past days have been trying and have provoked understandable worry in Israel and among supporters of HMO worldwide. At this difficult time, the board of HWZOA is steadfast in our support for HMO. We stand with the doctors, nurses, staff and administrators who make the hospitals among the best in the world, and with the people of Israel whom they serve. We will do our part to help HMO recover and believe that the Government of Israel, the employees of HMO and the hospital's many other stakeholders will do the same. During this time, patient care will remain at the highest level, as we are accustomed to expect. We are certain that in the end, HMO will emerge from this crisis stronger and positioned for a bright future." The decision to restructure was reached by HMO's board and management after it became clear that mounting deficits would make it impos- sible to meet its full financial obligations to employees, suppliers, creditors and oth- ers. Under the Section 350 process, which is similar but not identical to Chapter 11 in the United States, HMO will receive temporary relief from some of its financial ob- ligations. During this period, court appointed trustees will workwith the hospital's man- agement and board to enact a recovery plan, which must be approved by the court. All contributions from donors to HMO are secure and will be used solely for the purposes for which they are given. In addition to its expression of support for HMO, Hadas- sah's board also committed Hadassah on page 15A LILLIAN ELIZABETH BURNSTINE Lillian (Lil) Burnstine passed away on Friday, Feb. 14, 2014, at Florida Hospital, Ormond Beach.
