The Sheba Field Hospital was carefully designed and planned over a period of years to be as complete a facility as possible. Operating in 12-hour shifts, 24/7, capacity includes Triage, ER, Outpatient Clinic, Labor and Delivery, Isolation, Mental Health, Imaging, Laboratory, Pharmacy, and painfully – Pediatrics. Of all the heart-breaking aspects of this war, the worst may be the impact on the children. Torn from school, activities, friends, and home their lives become a struggle for physical survival. As part of the field hospital, Sheba sent pediatric specialists and took great care in creating the environment of the pediatric tent. And as expected, many children were among the several hundred patients that were treated just in the first 48 hours. These children’s lives will forever be marked and changed by the horrific trauma they are enduring now. But the loving hands and giving hearts of the Sheba Medical Center staff will do whatever they can to heal and comfort. Watch this remarkable two-minute video as the Sheba staff celebrate the birthday of a 12 year old Ukrainian patient.
One of the most scurrilous charges hurled at Israel, which seems to have spiked lately, is that of apartheid. The smear is ridiculous of course, but in particular, Sheba Medical Center is a shining example of why it is false. From the 25% of the staff that are Arab-Israeli, to the relations between staff, to the treatment Israel offers to patients from Gaza, the Palestinian Authority, and across the Middle East, Sheba is a model for coexistence. This one-minute video from the field hospital is powerful testament to that fact. An Arab-Israeli pharmacist, Ameer Zoabi, is working in the lab of the Israeli field hospital in Ukraine. The haters can hate, but this video speaks volumes and is well worth one minute to watch. We live in a time of terrible events as well as moments that remind us of how beautiful the world can be.
One of the remarkable aspects of the Sheba operation in Ukraine is that the goal is more than just treatment of patients in the moment. Sheba is seeking to do what they can to strengthen and improve the medical system in Ukraine. So thank you to the generous gift of donors in Los Angeles, all the virtual and remote treatment equipment of the “Sheba Beyond” virtual hospital will be donated to the Ukrainian medical authorities when the hospital closes, which will allow physicians at Sheba in Tel Aviv to continue assisting in diagnosis and treatment, long after the physical plant is gone. Another goal of the Sheba mission is training of Ukrainian doctors in advanced techniques. In this short video you can see a Sheba doctor training a group of Ukrainian physicians.

Sheba Medical Center is playing a historical role in the quest for peace in the Middle East!
By the time you read this, Director General Prof. Yitshak Kreiss will be in Manama, Bahrain, where he will be attending the the US-Bahraini sponsored economic "Peace to Prosperity Workshop." Prof. Kreiss received a personal invitation from U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin both because of Sheba's reputation as being an oasis of peace in a turbulent region and due to our headline-making achievements, which were recently acknowledged by NEWSWEEK magazine. Prof. Kreiss is the ONLY Israeli hospital Director General to have received a personal invitation to partake in this once in a lifetime event!
These achievements were also highlighted at the recent Sheba gala in Israel and continued unabated with Dr. Talia Golan revealing her ground-breaking results in rolling back pancreatic cancer in the prestigious New England Journal of Medicine. More major announcements are due to be made throughout the summer by our talented medical staff.

Dear Sheba Friends,
Just a few days now and Christmas is around the corner – bright lights shall fill your hearts with joy, gratitude, peace and hope for a better tomorrow. May they continue to shine and sparkle throughout the year and enrich your lives with the "Christmas Spirit".
I wish to thank you all for the support and love you are giving us throughout the years. Much like the "Christmas Spirit", we here at Sheba Medical Center keep the eternal light of our "Sheba Spirit" burning: empathic patient care is deeply engraved in our Sheba flag and an essential part of it.
Let us together look forward and embrace an exciting future in all fields of medicine including innovation, research and development of new technologies and technology transfers, breakthrough drugs and treatment modalities. In the New Year 2017 we will continue to deepen the outreach and cooperation with other leading medical centers worldwide and provide humanitarian aid where needed.
I sent you my blessings and vouch to do my utmost to make us all here at Sheba worthy of your support and belief in this great hospital.
sincere appreciation from all of us here at Sheba and with my best
wishes for the holidays and a happy and joyful New Year,

SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT TO
THE FRIENDS OF SHEBA MEDICAL CENTER
By Prof. Zeev Rotstein
This certainly is one of the hardest letters I ever had to write when I have to tell you that the time has come and I need to say good bye, close to the finish line to my retirement and a bit prematurely.
I was called upon by our Minister of Health, MK Yakov Litzman, to head the Hadassah Medical Center in Jerusalem. I could not refuse the minister's personal and public request to join this important and urgent mission to pull Hadassah out of its present pitiful situation and bring it back on track.
I have served the Sheba Medical Center for the last 36 years, serving as its director and CEO for the last 11 years. It's my second home, my life's work.
During the course of the last months, I went through deep and serious contemplations. It's not an easy thing for me to leave Sheba Medical Center. You know me well enough to understand that my heart and soul belong to Sheba. The Sheba staff for me is like family – and I am proud to be part of such a wonderful family.
I am kind of a soldier myself, serving Sheba and my country for the past 36 years to the best of my abilities. But then I received a transfer order from the "high command" asking me to save Hadassah, to implement the outstanding Sheba success model there and help it survive and become functional again for the benefit of their patient population. I am a good soldier, and when there is a national emergency situation, I answer the call and try to contribute the best I can.
Let me tell you what I leave behind at Sheba, a legacy that started with Prof. Chaim Sheba and Prof. Mordechai Shani, and was then continued by me:
- Professionalism of clinical treatment that you will find only in the best hospitals in the world;
- Teaching and education programs for students, interns and residents with emphasis on investing in and nurturing the growth of the next generation of doctors and nurses; Sheba's prestigious Talpiot Excellency Program was initiated 10 years ago in order to prepare the medical leadership of tomorrow;
- Investment in infrastructure and breakthrough medical research that puts us on the international map as a leading medical center.
I would run out of paper if I had to write down all that we did and experienced here during the course of all these years. But there is no doubt in my mind that we all can be proud of our achievements. This makes us who we are – Israel's national hospital!
deepest pride is the high quality of our Sheba staff. We have gathered
here a group of excellent people working with devotion and empathy, a
professional winning team
that is always ready and masters all challenges put before them. Thanks to their admirable abilities and their love and loyalty to Sheba, we were able to break in borders and make dreams come true.
During my years in office as director of the Sheba Medical Center, I fought many battles to achieve my goals of advancement - always guided by our special "Sheba Spirit" and my heart, and never losing the best of our hospital's interest out of my eyes.
Dear Sheba Friends, I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for all you have done and continue to do for our hospital. I am privileged to have you as partners and know that without your tremendous, generous and heart-warming support, we would not have been able to turn the Sheba Medical Center into the leading and most important hospital in Israel. Together we built an excellent and outstanding medical facility that never stops growing, developing and prospering.
I turn to you with a plea to continue supporting our hospital and my successor who will be representing Sheba as of next year.
With deep and sincere gratitude and love!
Prof. Zeev Rotstein
