Former prime minister Ariel Sharon will soon be permanently moved from Sheba Medical Center at Tel Hashomer to his Negev ranch, a source close to his family said Thursday, confirming a report in Yediot Aharonot. Sharon, who has been in a coma since January 2006, has been brought to the ranch for weekends in order to test how he would handle the move on a permanent basis.

A special room is being built for him at the ranch with all the necessary medical equipment. He would be under 24-hour medical supervision at the ranch as he is at the hospital. Sharon's sons hope returning to the ranch could help their father recover, but medical authorities have said that his chances of recovering are slim to none.
