About Alyn Hospital

ALYN Hospital is acknowledged worldwide as a premier hospital specializing in pediatric rehabilitation. It is the only facility of its kind in Israel. ALYN’s reputation in diagnosing and rehabilitating infants, children and adolescents with physical disabilities, both congenital and acquired, is meticulous. The children treated at ALYN come from Israel and abroad. The hospital welcomes all patients regardless of religion or nationality.

ALYN is fortunate to have a multidisciplinary team providing a wide range of medical services, paramedical therapies and additional state-of-the-art rehabilitation services. ALYN’s various departments and services include: the Rehabilitation Department, the Day Hospitalization Rehabilitation Department, the Respiratory Rehabilitation Department, Multidisciplinary Outpatient Clinics, the Shachar Rehabilitation Educational and Medical Day Care Facility, incorporating infant, kindergarten and school classes, The Skill Building Center, Maslul – the Dyna and Fala Weinstock Therapeutic Sports Center and the Legacy Heritage Independent Living Neighborhood for Ventilator-Assisted Young Adults. In addition, ALYN is a center of research and teaching for professionals training in the field of pediatric rehabilitation.

The children at ALYN face a variety of physical challenges. Once the team at ALYN assesses each child’s needs, the rehabilitation plan is determined. Some children require short-term rehabilitation. Others must learn to cope with complex injuries and medical conditions (including children who require ventilation) requiring long-term rehabilitation. At ALYN we recognize the importance of assisting the families as their children begin the rehabilitative process, which can be long and complex. The families of all the patients at ALYN receive instruction from the staff as to how they can best help their children meet the challenge of their rehabilitation.

Our treatment is multidisciplinary. In addition to physicians and paramedical therapists, ALYN staff members include physiotherapists, hydrotherapists, occupational therapists and speech and language therapists. Throughout their rehabilitation process the children and their families receive support and guidance from ALYN’s nursing staff, social workers and psychologists.

To help the children remain motivated throughout the often difficult demands of their rehabilitation, ALYN includes animal assisted therapy, computer technology therapy, virtual reality games, medical clowns, hydrotherapy and exercising in MASLUL, ALYN’s Therapeutic Sports Center. All the treatments are incorporated into each child’s regular rehabilitation schedule.

It is the right of every child – notwithstanding the challenges with which they have been presented – to achieve the best possible quality of life. ALYN’s holistic approach, incorporating the treatment of physical symptoms, as well as taking into account the emotional and communal needs of the children and their families, has proven itself throughout the eight decades since ALYN was first established.
