Dr. Shlomi Kodesh has become director-general of Soroka-University Medical Center in Beersheba, replacing the retiring director-general Dr. Ehud Davidson, who took office in 2013.
A 51-year-old resident of Meitar, a town northeast of Beersheba, Kodesh is married to Iris, a pediatrician, and has three children. He is a graduate of Ben-Gurion University’s Faculty of Health Sciences, and has a master’s degree in public health from BGU as well. He is an internal medicine specialist who completed studies in medical informatics at Yale University and previously held a number of senior positions at Clalit Health Services, including as head of the computerized medical records department in the hospital division and as deputy director of Soroka Medical Center.
In his last position, Kodesh served as the medical director of Clalit’s southern district. He lectures at BGU’s School of Medicine and its department of health systems management.
“Soroka is a leading medical center in Israel with exceptional achievements. Our devoted staff constitute the mainstay of the health system in the Negev. I am proud to have been chosen to lead them,” he said.
