Sheba Medical Center

For the second year in a row, Newsweek magazine has chosen Sheba Medical Center as one of the world’s Top 10 best hospitals in the world. This year, Sheba was in ninth place, moving up from last year’s tenth slot.


It comes at a time when the hospital is advancing medical innovation on all fronts, including dealing with the coronavirus crisis by using ground-breaking telemedicine solutions to treat COVID-19 patients who are quarantined at a special hospital complex.

Sheba Prepares for Coronavirus Epidemic with Apps, Robots

Sheba prepared for the coronavirus crisis with different high-tech means: a telemedicine app that enables patients to receive care in the isolation, but comfort, of their own home; and robots that can treat in-hospital patients in order to minimize contact with staff.

“I am especially proud to be on the Newsweek list once more,” said Professor Yitshak Kreiss, director-general of the hospital. “This achievement denotes another year of innovative medical achievements which are impacting the world.

“I am especially proud of our 9100 medical professionals who wake up each morning and come to work dedicating themselves to thinking outside the box, creating new ways to giving patients the best care and dealing with crisis like the coronavirus by employing game changing technologies such as telemedicine,” he said.

“At Sheba we use the phrase…hope has no boundaries, and this is what motivates us.”
