Sheba Medical Center Chosen by the State of Israel to Build & Run the New Hospital of the Negev


In a dramatic development, the State of Israel has approved the construction of a new hospital in Beersheba (southern Israel) that will be managed by Sheba Medical Center.

The new hospital, which will be managed by Sheba in collaboration with HMOs Leumit and Meuhedet, will bring first-class health services to the residents of the Negev and provide a response to the growing demand for quality medical care in the region.

The State of Israel reported, “Because of the existing challenges for Leumit and Meuhedet to run a large hospital facility on a daily basis especially in the periphery where limited services are available to the public, the State of Israel in cooperation with Leumit and Meuhedet has chosen Sheba Medical Center, to manage and run the new facility based on its vast experience in managing and running a major medical facility. We believe that this is a major step forward in rectifying the on-going problems in providing quality healthcare to the citizens of Beersheba and beyond.” 

“This is a historic step, not only for the Negev but for public health in Israel. Establishing an additional hospital in the Negev, in collaboration with HMOs and a government-run hospital, will change the health system and provide residents of the periphery excellent healthcare,” said Professor Yitshak Kreiss, Director General of Sheba Medical Center. “We are grateful to the State of Israel for approving this new hospital and trusting Sheba to manage the facility, putting the infrastructure in place to reduce health disparities in the periphery and laying the foundations for healthcare of the future.” 

The new hospital will adopt advanced AI (artificial intelligence) technologies and integrate groundbreaking treatments, pioneered and created at Sheba, as well as employing multidisciplinary and skilled professional teams. Representing a transformation in the Negev, the hospital will help reduce the health disparities between the center and periphery of Israel, enabling residents of the South to access among the best medical care globally.
