Sheba Medical Center at Tel Hashomer was recently ranked by the Newsweek magazine as the 10th best hospital in the world.

“Sheba Medical Center – or Tel HaShomer Hospital – in Ramat Gan is a leader in medical science and biotechnical innovation, both in the Middle East and worldwide,” the magazine explains.

“The tertiary referral hospital, affiliated with Tel Aviv University, includes centers for nearly all medical divisions and specialties, and serves over 1 million patients per year,” it added.

“More than 25 percent of all Israeli medical clinical research takes place at its state-of-the-art facilities, and as a hospital it works with nearly every Israeli medical institute to educate students and advance the future of the medical profession.”

The prestigious list was composed by a panel of medical professionals, administrators and physicians across the world.

At the top of the list came the Mayo Clinic, which boasts multiple centers and hospitals across the United States. It was followed by the Cleveland Clinic, which has hospitals in the US, Canada and the United Arab Emirates. Third place went to Singapore General Hospital, followed by Johns Hopkins Hospital, the Charité in Berlin, Massachusetts General Hospital, Toronto General Hospital, University of Tokyo Hospital, Lausanne University Hospital in Switzerland and Sheba Medical Center.

“We are proud and excited to have been chosen by Newsweek magazine to appear on this prestigious list of elite hospitals around the globe,” says Sheba’s Director General Prof. Yitshak Kreiss. “This is the culmination of 70 years of dedication to excellence, professionalism and innovation by our devoted, talented staff, within the field of medicine and patient care.”

“Never resting on our laurels, we will continue pushing the boundaries to find cures and treatments that will not only benefit our patients in Israel but to also benefit mankind around the globe.”
