About Us

United Hatzalah

When emergencies occur, rapid medical treatment increases the chances of survival exponentially. United Hatzalah of Israel makes this a reality by bridging the gap between the time an emergency call is made and the time an ambulance arrives.

Using specially equipped motorcycle ambulances, United Hatzalah’s network of more than 6,000 volunteer medics help save thousands of lives each year across Israel by providing medical treatment in an average response time of three minutes or less.

Our humanitarian services are free, universal and available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Our cost to save one life is $500, join us and become an active partner in saving lives.

On an average day, United Hatzalah volunteers respond to 1,800 calls. These include:


Road accidents


Birth emergencies


Head injuries


Severe injuries


Light injuries


Cardiac and CPR callouts


External burns


Unconscious patients

The impact of these individual acts of lifesaving and medical support each day not only helps those who directly receive it but also has ramifications upon the thousands of people whose family members are helped by our volunteers. And all at no cost to those we help.
