Ministry of Health 2019 Report Recognizes Sheba for Excellence in Health Care

Ministry of Health 2019 Report Recognizes Sheba for Excellence in Health Care
For the second year in a row, the Ministry of Health’s National Quality Indicators Report recognized Sheba Medical Center as a leading force, receiving excellence in healthcare quality and patient safety.

After climbing to #9 of Newsweek’s 2020 list of the top 10 hospitals worldwide, Sheba Medical Center achieved another illustrious distinction. The 2019 Ministry of Health’s National Quality Indicators Report was published recently, revealing Sheba as a top-ranked hospital for quality and safety in patient care.

For two years running, this professional recognition has been granted to Sheba – the largest medical center in Israel, responsible for treating the most complicated and difficult cases.

The annual Quality Indicators Report compiles the national criteria for measuring quality in medicine. The review includes an assessment of general hospitals, psychiatric hospitals, and geriatric hospitals, all judged by a total of 46 indices of excellence in healthcare. The report’s high standards are established based on clinical research, always measured against the goal of improving quality and safety for patients.

Some parameters that are evaluated include the speed and nature of the response to a cardiac event, how quickly treatment for stroke is provided, adherence to infection prevention protocols before surgeries, quality of care for people with diabetes, and typical wait-time for admission to the hospital.

Out of 26 metrics used by the Ministry of Health, Sheba Medical Center was honored with excellence in 25 of them.

The geriatric division of Sheba took first place, with an exceptional status in all measures. Sheba is proud to emphasize the preservation of health and quality of life for the senior population, always providing geriatric care with sensitivity and compassion.

Sheba’s psychiatric wing was also recognized as outstanding in all metrics, leading the way in the field of psychiatric treatment. During the coronavirus pandemic, an innovative national solution was established at Sheba with the opening of a specialized psychiatric coronavirus unit, the first of its kind in the world.

Dr. Eyal Zimlichman, Deputy Director General, Chief Medical Officer and Chief Innovation Officer at Sheba Medical Center, said, “The quality indicators were designed to strengthen the quality and safety of our patient treatment. We present our quality indicators as a reflection of our constant goal to provide patients with the best medicine possible, at the highest standard – without compromise. In this achievement, we join the leading medical centers around the world.”
