Yitshak Kreiss named as the 5h most influential person in Israel
TheMarker, the leading business newspaper in Israel has released its annual list of the 100 Most Influential Israeli Citizens. On the 2018 list they ranked Prof. Yitzhak Kreiss as the 5th most influential person in the country. Prof. Kreiss is highlighted for his revolutionary initiatives in his esteemed role as Director General of Sheba Medical Center, the largest hospital in the Middle East.

Throughout the past two years since he became Director General of Sheba, Prof. Kreiss demonstrated powerful leadership skills and many pioneering accomplishments. He expanded Sheba’s research programs significantly and introduced many breakthrough innovations to improve global healthcare. Prof. Kreiss advanced Sheba as an epicenter for ultra-progressive medical studies and care, thereby helping to save lives in health facilities around the world.

In particular, TheMarker cites the modern and promising City of Health Project, which is renovating and upgrading Sheba’s campus with cutting-edge technologies and facilities. This project is regarded as having a tremendous potential impact on Israel and on medicine worldwide.

“We not only want to influence patient care and the future of medicine in Israel, but also on a global scale,” says Prof. Kreiss.

TheMarker also credits Prof. Kreiss with helping to garner international respect for Sheba Medical Center’s global humanitarian efforts, as well as for the way the hospital is an oasis of peace in the region. Sheba’s campus in Tel HaShomer includes an acute care hospital and a rehabilitation hospital, and it welcomes patients from all over the world indiscriminately.
