Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist (R-TN), a cardiac surgeon and transplant specialist, toured Hadassah Medical Center in Jerusalem yesterday while on a three-day fact-finding mission to Israel to study the progress of the peace process. After a tour of the Human Embryonic Stem Cell Research Center, whose groundbreaking research he called "pioneering and very promising," he was given a complete overview of the hospital's emergency preparedness at the Judy and Sidney Swartz Center for Emergency Medicine. "As a surgeon, I think Hadassah has one of the outstanding trauma centers in the world...it is a facility readily adaptable to predictable and non-predicable events," he said. The Senator is pictured comforting two-year old Halle, who has just undergone treatment on her forehead. The Hadassah Medical Organization was recently nominated for the 2005 Nobel Peace Prize for its equal care and treatment of all residents of the region.
