Dedicated to providing those in need across the globe ‘Hope Without Boundaries,’ Sheba treats patients from more than 100 countries each year, employing the latest medical approaches, the most cutting-edge technologies, and some of the world’s most distinguished clinicians.
We were recently delighted to have these efforts recognized as part of the Newsweek and Statista specialty hospital rankings, which not only named Sheba as one the world’s best oncology and smart hospitals, but also recognized its global leadership in cardiology, neurosurgery, and gastroenterology.
This latest accolade comes after Sheba’s fifth straight inclusion in the Newsweek and Statista Best Hospitals in the World report and serves to cement its status as a global healthcare leader.
A word from Prof. Kreiss
“At Sheba, we believe that technological advancement and clinical excellence go hand in hand,” said Prof. Yitshak Kreiss, Director General of Sheba Medical Center, after learning of this year’s rankings. “This achievement highlights our global leadership in health transformation as we leverage technology to provide each and every patient with the highest quality and most advanced treatment.”
The specialty hospital rankings of Newsweek and Statista are compiled using a diverse set of metrics. This includes an expansive international survey involving more than 40,000 hospital directors, professionals, and specialists across two dozen nations. In addition, assessments from globally recognized medical experts and reports detailing patient satisfaction are also factored in.
The smart hospital rankings are compiled using a multifaceted approach with several key elements. Peer reviews from directors and experts in smart hospitals contribute to the assessment, as do evaluations from senior figures in the digital and information sectors. In addition to this, a global survey of senior industry professionals is also considered. The focus of the ranking is to measure the hospitals’ leadership and proficiency in areas such as telemedicine, electronic functionalities, digital imaging, artificial intelligence, and robotics.
Technology: a strategic enabler
According to Prof. Eyal Zimlichman, Sheba’s Chief Transformation and Innovation Officer, as well as Director and Founder of ARC Innovation, “Sheba is proud to rank among the world’s best smart hospitals. At ARC, our transformation and innovation arm, we see technology, and specifically digital health, as a strategic enabler that will allow us to transform operations and patient care, allowing us to become much more effective, efficient, and centered on human needs.”
