Choosing Sheba for Medical Treatment in Israel

Medical treatment in Israel is highly advanced and among the highest rated around the world. As the largest government hospital in Israel and serving more than 1,500,000 patients a year, many patients around the world have chosen Sheba for medical treatment.

offers a solution that is closer than Europe and less expensive than the United States. Many members of the medical staff also speak Arabic, creating a comfortable atmosphere – like a home away from home.
