33 categories of medical fields were surveyed, and Sheba took the #1 spot in approximately one-third of these specialties.

The hospital partakes in 3,330 clinical research trials yearly, giving people the opportunity to benefit from cutting-edge therapies.
“I’m proud for our doctors to be chosen again for being the best specialists in the country”, said Prof. Eyal Sivan, Director of the Josef Buchmann Gynecology and Maternity Center. “It is no coincidence, since we have been educating our doctors for years. They receive additional training even after the challenging period of specialization, and as a result they maintain an exceptional level of professionalism.”

The staff includes nearly 2,000 multidisciplinary doctors and 9,100 healthcare professionals, and Sheba performs over 50,000 surgeries per year.
