Sheba and Medical Tourism

Sheba’s efforts to attract medical travelers date back to 1990, when the hospital began to establish official agreements with health ministries in nearby countries and to treat patients from Russia, the Ukraine, Turkey, Greece, Italy, and Jordan.

Sheba’s Department for Medical Tourist Services is staffed by nurses and an administrative aide who personally assist patients during their medical visits. The staff in this department is fluent in English and all medical reports are provided in English.

For those who wish to remain close to a patient during his or her stay at the hospital, Sheba offers guest accommodations. The Apropo Hotel is located in the General Hospital’s shopping mall. The Rehabilitation Hotel is located near the Rehabilitation Center.

Chaim Sheba first received full JCI accredition in 2013.
