WHY SHEBA SHOULD BE YOUR FIRST CHOICE
Every year, thousands of patients from across the globe choose Sheba for our quality, innovation, and personalized approach to medicine. “Sheba’s commitment to compassionate care extends beyond Israel’s borders. Over the years, we have provided support and supplies in distant areas of need throughout the world, including Kosovo, Armenia, Cambodia, Sri Lanka, Peru, Chernobyl and Rwanda. Patients come to Sheba from across the Middle East, including from countries that have no diplomatic relations with Israel. Sheba is extending its medical services to many eastern European and Mediterranean countries, and maintains a special agreement with the Republic of Cyprus. These commitments stem from our hospital’s concern for the needy, and from the State of Israel’s long-time tradition of contributing to humanitarian relief efforts abroad. In addition, Sheba is involved in assisting entrepreneurship and consultancy for international construction of hospital and training of medical teams in Africa and Eastern Europe.”; Professor Yitzhak Kreis, Director of Sheba Medical Center
