Sheba Widens Its’ Global Impact in Australia
Last week, Sheba Medical Center partnered with the government of New South Wales (NSW) in Australia to create new opportunities for international collaboration on innovative research and treatments to advance clinical care, as well as improve outcomes for patients in NSW, whose largest city is Sydney.
NSW Minister for Health Brad Hazzard signed the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with Sheba Medical Center during a ZOOM ceremony.
“The signing of this agreement between the NSW Government and Sheba Medical Center is the first step in establishing a partnership that will allow us to collaborate on new innovations to improve patient care,” Mr. Hazzard said. “Our experts will be able to draw on the expertise of the Sheba Medical Center and its global network of innovators (through its ARC ecosystem) so we can continue to expand our knowledge, skills and capability in these sectors.”
“One of the key aims of this partnership,” he continued, “will be looking at new ways to overcome the challenges associated with getting health technology to market, so patients are able to access life-saving treatments quicker.”
Prof. Eyal Zimlichman, founder of ARC and Sheba’s Chief Transformation and Innovation Officer declared that ARC’s mission is to enable large scale transformation of health around the world through innovations and collaborations.
“In Australia, we have found like-minded organizations. We look forward to working closely together in order to drive health transformation efforts,” said Prof. Zimlichman.
Prof. Yitshak Kreiss, Dir. General of Sheba added, “This partnership enables us to shorten the distance between our two countries and provides a bridge to offering quality healthcare to patients in New South Wales and across the region.”
Australian Friends of Sheba CEO Idan Goldberger concluded, “Together we are creating, a brighter, healthier future for all, as health has no boundaries.”
