Sheba Med­i­cal Cen­ter’s spe­cial­ists con­sid­ered ‘best doc­tors in Is­rael’

Jerusalem Post - - NEWS - • By DAVID BRUMMER

If you are un­for­tu­nate enough to get sick, it seems the best place to get treat­ment is at Sheba Med­i­cal Cen­ter-Tel Hashomer in Ra­mat Gan. Ac­cord­ing to a newly pub­lished 2018 Forbes Is­rael mag­a­zine “Best Doc­tors in Is­rael” list, a record-break­ing 188 spe­cial­ists from the hos­pi­tal are con­sid­ered lead­ers in their re­spec­tive fields.

Those nearly 200 spe­cial­ists rep­re­sent 40% of the doc­tors listed across more than 30 dif­fer­ent cat­e­gories in Forbes Is­rael, in­clud­ing orol­ogy, al­ler­gies and im­munol­ogy, en­docrinol­ogy, ear nose and throat, ge­net­ics, gy­ne­col­ogy, surgery (heart and chest), fer­til­ity and child­birth, skin, op­tom­e­try, in­ter­nal medicine and obe­sity man­age­ment.

It is the fifth time that Forbes Is­rael has printed its an­nual “Best Doc­tors in Is­rael” list and it is unique, in that not only did thou­sands of doc­tors take part in the sur­vey, but to main­tain ob­jec­tiv­ity they had to se­lect peers from other med­i­cal in­sti­tu­tions and in de­part­ments dif­fer­ent from their own, for fear of skew­ing re­sults. The 2018 re­sults fol­low a sim­i­lar pat­tern to the 2017 Forbes Is­rael list, in which a fifth of the 873 se­lected doc­tors called the Sheba Med­i­cal Cen­ter home. It is a tes­ta­ment to both the doc­tors and the in­sti­tu­tion that it is thought of so highly among oth­ers in the med­i­cal pro­fes­sion.

“We are ex­tremely proud of our doc­tors and their ac­com­plish­ments,” said Prof. Yitzhak Kreiss, di­rec­tor gen­eral of Sheba Med­i­cal Cen­ter, “as Sheba con­tin­ues to of­fer the best med­i­cal care to both the cit­i­zens of Is­rael and pa­tients who come to us from around the world.”
