Sheba Recognized as One of the World’s Best Smart Hospitals

Sheba Recognized as One of the World's Best Smart Hospitals
This latest honor comes only a few months after Newsweek magazine reaffirmed Sheba’s position, for the third year in a row, as one of the world’s top 10 best hospitals

The prestigious Newsweek magazine has partnered with global data research firm Statista to identify the world’s best smart hospitals. According to Newsweek, the hospitals on this new list are those who lead the healthcare industry in the “use of artificial intelligence, robotic surgery, digital imaging, telemedicine, smart buildings, information technology infrastructure, and electronic health records.”

Only a few months after reaffirming Sheba’s position, for the third year in a row, as one of the world’s ten best hospitals, Newsweek magazine has now recognized it as the 13th best smart hospital in the world, and the 1st in Israel.

“Healthcare systems and hospitals must be prepared for a variety of challenges during the next decade. Thus, hospitals must revolutionize and introduce smart breakthrough technologies that will enhance patient care,” said Prof. Yitshak Kreiss, Director General of Sheba Medical Center. “As one of the top 10 best hospitals in the world, Sheba Medical Center continues to shape the future of medicine. I am especially proud to work alongside our top doctors, who have played an integral role in transforming Sheba into a ‘smart hospital’ that is revolutionizing healthcare.”

Spearheading Sheba’s technological excellence is the ARC Innovation Center, created nearly three years ago to accelerate innovation and lead to game-changing healthcare solutions aimed at redesigning healthcare. Recently, the COVID-19 pandemic highlighted the importance of Sheba’s efforts in this area, as we were able to make wide use of telemedicine and provide other revolutionary digital healthcare solutions to ensure that all of Sheba’s patients continue to receive the best quality care even though many were not able to leave their homes.

According to Prof. Eyal Zimlichman, Deputy Director-General, Chief Medical Officer, and Chief Innovation Officer at Sheba Medical Center, “At the top of the list of technologies that hospitals need is telemedicine. The ability to provide services, monitor patients, and communicate with them remotely proved invaluable during the pandemic. Telemedicine can also benefit hospitals and patients in other ways by helping to identify problems more quickly, reducing infection, and making healthcare more comfortable and convenient. Another advantage is that by shifting rehabilitation to the patients’ homes, we can release them from the hospital sooner.”

In keeping with our commitment to medical innovation, Sheba Medical Center will continue to embrace telemedicine and other advanced technologies that are transforming healthcare.
