Israel Hayom: $9 Million Helmsley Grant to Support Nursing Program

Israel Hayom covered the news of a $9 million grant from the Helmsley Charitable Trust to help fund the construction of the Faculty of Life and Health Sciences Building at the Jerusalem College of Technology (JCT), home to one of the largest nursing programs in Israel — a country with only 5.1 nurses per 1,000 people.

"This new facility will expand JCT's excellent nursing degree programs, allow it to grow its student body, and help to alleviate the unfortunate shortage of nurses in Israel," said Sandor Frankel, one of Helmsley's trustees, following the announcement. "We are committed to supporting quality healthcare in Israel, and enabling JCT to graduate more highly-trained nurses and other medical personnel will be a win for the country."
