DFA: Beware of fake Israeli hospital

Philippine officials in Israel reiterated early this week that there are no job openings for
hospital workers in Israel, and job applicants must particularly beware of a fictitious hospital
used as decoy by illegal recruiters.

The Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) said in a release citing a report from the Philippine
Embassy in Israel that “this announcement is being issued in response to reports and
queries from prospective applicants verifying job opportunities offered to them by certain
unscrupulous recruiters to work in various capacities for a ‘Jordan Valley Medical Center in

The Embassy confirmed that the “Jordan Valley Medical Center” is “fictitious and no such
hospital exists in Israel,” the DFA said.

It reiterated there are no job openings in Israel for hospital workers such as doctors, nurses,
medical technicians, ambulance crew, or drivers, that are available to Filipino applicants.

It also reminded that Filipinos are recruited for Israel as caregivers for home care and not in
hospitals. (PIA)
