Organization Description and Activity
ALYN Hospital is one of the world's leading specialists in pediatric rehabilitation and is the only facility of its kind in Israel.  ALYN specializes in diagnosis and the rehabilitation of infants, children and adolescents who are suffering from physical disabilities, both congenital and acquired.
ALYN Hospital employs a multidisciplinary staff including doctors and para-medical therapists. ALYN's various departments and services include: the Respiratory Rehabilitation Department, the Rehabilitation Department, the Day Rehabilitation Department, Shachar Rehabilitation Educational Medical Day Care Center, the Skill Building Center, the Therapeutic Sports Center and the Legacy Heritage Independent Living Neighborhood for ventilator-assisted young adults.
At ALYN we treat children suffering from a variety of physical challenges, from routine conditions which need a professional diagnosis and short term treatment to long-term rehabilitation for children and adolescents suffering from severe injuries or complex medical conditions - including children who are ventilator dependent. The families of all the patients receive instruction from the ALYN staff on how they can help their children through the often long and complex rehabilitation process. Patients come to ALYN from all over Israel and from abroad and are rehabilitated at ALYN regardless of their religion, ethnic origin or language.
The treatment at ALYN is multidisciplinary and includes doctors who are specialists in different fields and a variety of therapies which includes physiotherapy, hydrotherapy, occupational therapy and speech and language therapy. Throughout their rehabilitation process every patient and their family is accompanied by nursing staff, social workers and psychologists. 
Children and their families work very hard during their rehabilitation treatments.  In order to increase a child's motivation so that they make progress in their rehabilitation process ALYN adds animal assisted therapy, computer technology therapy, virtual reality games, medical clowns, hydrotherapy and exercising in the Hospital's Therapeutic Sports Center to the patients rehabilitation program.
We believe that it is every child's right – including children suffering from physical challenges - to have the best quality of life possible and therefore ALYN provides the tools to every patient and their family so that they can learn how to cope with their condition in order to reach their full potential, helped by their family and the ALYN staff.
