‘Golden’ Israeli hospital is among world’s top 10

In March, Newsweek recognized Sheba Medical Center at Tel HaShomer, near Tel Aviv — the largest and most comprehensive hospital in Israel and the Middle East — as one of the 10 best hospitals across the globe. Sheba Medical Center “is a leader in medical science and biotechnical innovation, both in the Middle East and worldwide,” Newsweek said.

On the heels of that recognition, last month, the center was awarded the “Gold Standard” by the Joint Commission International. A team of JCI surveyors spent eight days reviewing the hospital.  At the review’s closing ceremony, Diane M. Sanders, RN, MN, JCI’s chief surveyor, said, “This was one of the most rewarding weeks in my entire career. You are never satisfied with just passing. Your compassion for the patients was amazing to experience. You are the spirit of Israel and Sheba embodies the essence of this country.”
