We provide for these needs by offering psychological and social work support in addition to medical care. We also offer comfort, education, and support for our patients’ families.

This includes translating medical information, physician instructions, and providing for any other communication concerns that arise.

THE COMPLETE CONTINUUM OF CARE FROM SHEBA FOR MEDICAL TOURIST PATIENTS
A full circle is 360 degrees. To us at Sheba Medical Center, 360 degrees means total and complete healthcare. We accomplish this by providing world class medicine with a personal touch to all our patients. We have two medical tourism tracks – for individuals and government-sponsered patients.
Our clinicians, surgeons, and researchers are responsible for some of the world’s latest medical advances. We work hand in hand with the pharmaceutical community to bring these life-saving drugs and techniques to our patients. Additionally, the Israeli Ministry of Health has a progressive attitude regarding drug approvals, allowing our medical tourist patients to benefit from our pioneering therapies, several of which are unavailable outside of Israel.
“All patients have a right to quality of life and a healthy life! This fundamental right is even more pertinent in situations when ill health or serious disease arise, and when it is necessary to seek medical services in a foreign country.
Sheba Medical Center, Israel’s leading hospital and the largest in the Middle East, has carefully built a department that specializes in medical tourism to address the difficulties in mind that patients and families have when seeking medical treatment in a foreign country. For this reason, we appoint to each patient and family a coordinator to accompany and help you at every step of your treatment with us; assisting you with everything from translation to coordination of appointments and professional medical explanations of diagnoses and treatments.
We are committed to giving you the best medical care and our commitment to your health makes us the right choice for you. We have the best specialists to assist you and we entitle medical tourists with the same high standard of treatment received by Israelis.
We look forward to welcoming you to our medical facility and making your care our first priority.”
