Sheba Medical Center is the top medical center in Israel, according to a report released by the Health Ministry on Wednesday.
The Health Ministry's National Quality Index report found that Sheba led in all the indices it was tested on and even scored 100% on 13 of them, which is more than any other hospital in the report.
The report also found that Sheba's mental health facility outdid all the other mental health hospitals in the country with 99.2% fulfillment of the indices tested.
Sheba was the first hospital in Israel to publish its Health Ministry ratings on its website in 2019 as part of a transparency policy.
"First place in the National Quality Index belongs to every one of the dedicated staff members in Sheba," said the hospital's manager Prof. Yitshak Kreiss. "Our goal is to give excellent public healthcare to anyone who needs it. Sheba's staff does that every day and at the highest level in Israel and one of the highest in the world.
