For three years in a row, Sheba Medical Center has been on the top 10 list of hospitals in the world, and now it is receiving another honor: the American magazine Newsweek placed it at the top of the “smart” hospitals in the world for 2021.
According to the magazine, Sheba ranks 13th, and stars alongside world-leading hospitals such as the Mayo Clinic, Cleveland Clinic, Massachusetts and Mount Sinai.
A total of 250 hospitals were surveyed, and Sheba was ranked first out of four Israeli hospitals on the list.
Hospitals were measured according to criteria such as the application of artificial intelligence in medical procedures, telemedicine and digitization in areas such as imaging. The score is also measured by the opinions of factors inside and outside the hospitals and interviews with experts in “smart” hospitals.
Sheba Director Prof. Yitzhak Kreis: “The health care system and hospitals must be prepared for the challenges of the next decade, including making all hospitals ‘smart’ and breaking the boundaries of medicine using technologies that will ensure the continuum of treatment in times of war and peace.”
