Sheba Medical Center Will Bring Innovative Healthcare to Bahrain Through a New Partnership Agreement

Sheba and AMH
Sheba and Bahrain’s state-of-the-art King Hamad branch of the American Mission Hospital will collaborate, creating a new standard for medical care in the Persian Gulf

Aiming to benefit patients in the Persian Gulf through the sharing of medical expertise, Sheba has concluded a partnership with Bahrain’s American Mission Hospital (AMH), the country’s largest private hospital, which was formalized at the C3 US-Arab Healthcare & Business Summit in New York City on the second anniversary of the Abraham Accords, which normalized diplomatic relations between Persian Gulf countries and Israel in 2020.

As part of the agreement, Sheba will work with King Hamad American Mission Hospital to develop professional resources, train medical staff, and set up a telemedicine clinic to reach a wider circle of patients.

“Our growing relationship with King Hamad American Mission Hospital symbolizes how we are looking to promote innovation as a tool for economic growth and prosperity between our two countries,” explained Prof. Eyal Zimlichman, Chief Transformation & Innovation Officer at Sheba Medical Center as well as Founder and Director of ARC.

“Innovation is a bridge to foment economic growth and sustainability in order to provide better healthcare to everyone in the region.” 

Sheba has already launched several collaborations in the Persian Gulf region, including a partnership with Dubai-based Medcare Women and Children Hospital to train obstetricians and gynecologists, as well as an agreement with UAE’s Al Tadawi Healthcare group whereby Sheba’s doctors provide remote consultations to government workers. 

“Healthcare is a pathway to peace and prosperity,” says Yoel Har-Even, Director of Sheba Global. “We can all unite for the common goal of promoting health and combating the ailments from which mankind suffers.”

AMH will open its new $66M flagship facility later this year and employ innovations developed by Sheba’s ARC Innovation Center, including remote patient vital sign monitoring, the use of VR for pain management, and protecting patient data through advanced cybersecurity systems. 

Dr. George Cheriyan, CEO of AMH, sees the agreement as part of a “Positive, bright future. It’s not some U.N. accord, signed and forgotten. There are real people involved, and real lives are being impacted through this relationship.”
