90,000 inpatients and 250,000 outpatients a year


the busiest emergency medicine department in Israel: 175,000 patients a year


among the hospital's core specialties: burns, cardiology and cardiac surgery, ophthalmology, imaging and image-guided therapy, obstetrics and gynecology, oncology and hemato-oncology, orthopedics, pediatrics, surgery, urology and more


emphasis on complete continuum of care, from acute emergency intervention through rehabilitation, in an effort to make the patient not just healthy but also functional


  • seamless integration with the Sheba Rehabilitation Hospital, uniquely providing patients with expert rehabilitation care in the earliest stages of their treatment


  • clinical treatment is closely intertwined to cutting-edge medical research underway at Sheba, in proximity to the patient, for the direct benefit of the patient; thus, reducing the technology gap from (laboratory) bench to (patient) bedside


  • extensive outreach to community clinics, to improve primary treatment of chronic diseases and to prevent hospitalizations, especially in pediatrics, gynecology and surgery


  • sophisticated logistical systems ensure the finest and fastest medical care, including Israel's only comprehensive Electronic Medical Record system (from admission to discharge); an ultra-modern, computerized Mega-Laboratory -- which conducts around-the-clock specimen tests for the Sheba chemical, hematology, coagulation, endocrinology, pharmacology, urinalysis, serology, immunology departments; and top-of-the-line image-guided therapy suites in neurosurgery and oncology


  • serves as the Israel National Center for treatment of autoimmune diseases, burns, Cystic Fibrosis, glaucoma, hemophilia, medical education, newborn screening, spinal cord injuries, Tay Sachs, and virology
