Prof. Kreiss Outlines Sheba’s Global Leadership During ‘Swords of Iron’ in USA


Professor Yitshak Kreiss, Director General of Sheba Medical Center returned from the USA this week after a successful series of meetings with high-level organizational leaders, hospital executives, politicians and young business leaders in Philadelphia, Washington, DC, Jersey City and New York City.

During his visit, Prof. Kreiss strengthened ties with the Federations of Philadelphia and Greater Washington, DC, which have taken active roles in supporting Sheba’s on-going rehabilitative outreach to both soldiers and civilians alike.

At Thomas Jefferson University (TJU), Prof. Kreiss met with the senior staff, led by Dr. Susan Aldridge, Interim President and Zvi Grunwald, Exec. Director of TJU’s Israel Center. TJU has a rich collaboration history with Sheba based on joint research projects aboard the International Space Station, as well as an MOU to open a new neuroscience center on the Sheba campus.

Prof. Amitai Ziv from Sheba was the recipient of the 2022 Lennox K. Black Award, and Prof. Eyal Zimlichman from Sheba was the recipient of Innovator of the Year Award at Jefferson, to name a few of the rich joint collaboration projects.

In New Jersey, Prof. Kreiss discussed Sheba’s new ARC New US/Healthspace 2030 innovation center, with Jersey City Mayor Steven Fulop. ARC US/Healthspace 2030 is an integral part of Jersey City’s expansion plans within the Liberty Science Center. The innovative platform will serve as a global network with more than 150 partners, including startups, international medical center and industry corporations.

In Manhattan, the IDB Bank welcomed clients and guests to their New York headquarters to learn more about ARC US from Prof. Kreiss and Mayor Fulop.

Before departing back to Israel, Prof. Kreiss met with young entrepreneurs and business leaders from the Taglit EXCEL program. He explained how, under his leadership, one of the world’s best hospitals has risen to the challenge of dealing with war casualties and revolutionizing medical care under the most extreme circumstances.

“Of the 1,487 wounded soldiers who came to Sheba since Oct. 7th, only two didn’t survive. That’s a remarkable accomplishment and makes for an unprecedented survival rate of 99.85%,” As a leader, if you raise the bar high and your team buys in, they will raise the bar even higher,” said Prof. Kreiss.
