YOUR WEEKLY UPDATES FROM SHEBA MEDICAL CENTER
A Medical Trailblazer on a Global Scale!
Though Sheba Medical Center had folded up its Field Hospital tents in Mostyska, Western Ukraine after nearly two months of treating embattled Ukrainian citizens caught up in the horrific war earlier this year, Sheba’s medical teams never ceased from assisting those in need. Dozens of Ukrainian women and children have been flown to Israel for urgent medical care at Sheba. Medical assessment teams from Sheba have also returned to Western Ukraine to discuss future cooperation with local hospitals. Last week, together with the assistance of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA) and Ministry of Health (MOH), Sheba began a new phase in its treatment regimen by tending to the needs of two Ukrainian soldiers, Vornov Danylo and Lioshek Olexander, who lost part of their limbs during combat on the frontlines. Even as you are reading this, they have begun an intensive rehab regimen. Vornov and Lioshek are being fitted with prosthetics and will spend two months reacclimating their bodies to the new devices, which will enable them to return home and resume their lives.
In the coming days and weeks, Sheba is expected to receive more Ukrainian soldiers in need of rehabilitation. “There isn’t a better place for this type of rehabilitation treatment,” Israel’s Minister of Health, Nitzan Horowitz, told Vornov and Lioshek, during a visit to Sheba earlier this week.
