In Midst of Global Pandemic, Israeli Defense Company Quietly Changed the Face of Hospitals
The arrival of the coronavirus global pandemic came as suddenly for Israel’s Rafael defense company as it did to many other companies, yet it took very little time for Rafael to spring into action and quietly transform the face of Israeli hospitals’ wards. “Part of the Israeli DNA is to face up to missions together,” said Irit Idan, executive vice president, and head of research and development at Rafael. “This is our nature as a nation. From the moment that this incident began rolling, Rafael started floating many ideas on how we can assist the healthcare system.”
