כאן בבניין זה בבית החולים לילדים מריאנשטיפט טופלו ילדי ארץ ישראל והארצות השכנות ללא הבדלי דת או לאום.
ד"ר מקס סנדרצקי, אציל גרמני, המייסד והמנהל הרפואי, הקדים את דורו בגישתו הרפואית והאנושית. היה אוהב אדם, אשר באמונתו חי ובאמונתו הלך לעולמו.

Here in this building of the Marienstift Children’s Hospital were treated the Children of the Holy Land and neighbouring countries irrespective of religion or nationality. Dr. Max Sandreczky, a German aristocrat, the founder and director, preceded his generation in his humanitarian and professional approach to the practice of surgery and medicine.
He was a lover of mankind who lived and died by his faith.

The sign shape is square but its head is designed according to the silhouette of the old building of the Gymnasia Herzliya, which serves as a logo of the Council for the Preservation of Heritage Sites in Israel

The phrase "and died by his faith" that appears on the sign probably refers to the fact that Dr. Sandreczky committed suicide after contracting kidney disease, became depressed and feared that he would not be able to continue operating the hospital, and indeed after his death the hospital closed.
