“To be nominated and ranked amongst the Top 10 World’s Best Hospitals for three consecutive years underscores Israel’s image as a small country with world-class medicine and what we call, ‘Sheba Global Impact,’” said Sheba Medical Center CEO Professor Yitshak Kreiss. “This honor is also a testament to our dedicated staff, which has worked tirelessly to utilize cutting-edge medical treatments, treating patients from all walks of life during these challenging times, offering hope without boundaries. We are also honored to be Israel’s #1 hospital as well.”
