Sheba has been appointed by the State of Israel to manage the Advanced Smart Hospital in Beersheba.

In a groundbreaking development, the State of Israel has given the green light for the construction of a cutting-edge hospital in Beersheba, located in the Negev region. This new healthcare facility will be overseen by Sheba Medical Center, renowned as Israel’s largest hospital and consistently ranked among the world’s best hospitals by Newsweek for six consecutive years. In cooperation with HMOs Leumit and Meuhedet, Sheba will ensure the delivery of advanced, top-tier medical services to Negev residents, addressing the escalating need for high-quality healthcare 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 Be’er Sheva and beyond.” 

Professor Yitshak Kreiss, Director General of Sheba Medical Center stated, “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. 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.”

Leveraging Sheba’s Global Innovation Platform ARC, the upcoming hospital will embrace state-of-the-art digital solutions such as Artificial Intelligence, remote care enhancements, extended reality applications, and robotic automation. These technologies, combined with Sheba’s diverse and expert teams, will set a global benchmark for intelligent healthcare facilities. By bridging healthcare gaps, this hospital will empower Southern Israel’s residents with access to world-class medical services.
