The Sheba Medical Center (SMC) is the largest medical center of its kind in the state of Israel. Located in the suburbs of Tel Aviv, the most populated area of Israel, the Sheba Medical Center offers comprehensive, state-of-the- art healthcare services to over one million people. Our vision of excellence and professionalism, combined with our status as a level one trauma center has made us a national referral center for many hospitals throughout the country.
The Sheba Medical Center is a sophisticated academic center affiliated to Tel Aviv University - Sackler Faculty of Medicine. The SMC began in 1948 as Military Hospital number 5 which was established as an Israel Defense Forces medical facility. In 1953, Prof. Chaim Sheba transformed the hospital into a general medical center, treating civilian as well as military patients.
Today, the Sheba Medical Center is an 1800 bed facility serving as the leading provider of medical services and offering top professional staff, with cutting-edge technology. The SMC is actually comprised of two distinct hospitals. The General hospital houses Internal Medicine, Surgery, Obstetric and Gynecology, Pediatric Departments, and the Imaging and Laboratory Divisions. The Rehabilitation Hospital consists of the Geriatric, Psychiatric, Neurological and Orthopedic Rehabilitation Departments.
