Returning to Life

Sheba’s New Rehabilitation Initiative

The  Need

The atrocities that took place on October 7th and the subsequent war, prompted Sheba to take immediate action. Our already busy medical center suddenly saw a growing influx of civilians and soldiers from the frontlines. Being our duty and privilege to ensure the highest standard of care for Israeli citizens, we saw a need to open a new inpatient rehabilitation department with 54 beds and have future plans to open even a greater number of beds, as well as rapidly expand our workflow capacity.
