Israel’s Sheba Medical Center, the largest hospital in the country, has been named among the 10 best hospitals in the world by Newsweek magazine.
Coming in at number 10, Newsweek said the Sheba Medical Center, also known as the Tel HaShomer Hospital in Ramat Gan just outside Tel Aviv, “is a leader in medical science and biotechnical innovation, both in the Middle East and worldwide.”
“The center’s collaborations with international parties have advanced innovative medical practices, hospital systems and biotechnology,” according to the publication.
“More than 25 percent of all Israeli medical clinical research takes place at its state-of-the-art facilities, and as a hospital it works with nearly every Israeli medical institute to educate students and advance the future of the medical profession,” the report went on.
The top spot in the list went to the Mayo Clinic, followed by the Cleveland Clinic, the “site of the world’s first total facial transplant,” the Singapore General Hospital, Johns Hopkins Hospital, with the Charitéresearch-based university hospital in Berlin closing out the top five.
The US publication said the guide “helps Newsweek readers discover the ways leading hospitals—close to home and around the world—are shaping the future of medicine.”
The hospitals on the list, Newsweek said, “are the very best — the top 10, according to Newsweek’s panel of doctors, medical professionals and administrators across four continents.”
