WASHINGTON, March 25, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ — At this year’s American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) policy session, Sheba Medical Center, Tel HaShomer and Dr. Nathalie Bloch, Director of Sheba’s Innovation Center, were recognized for groundbreaking medical innovations that have an unparalleled impact around the world. The hospital recently earned a place as one of “The Top Ten Hospitals in the World.”

“It’s our mission to redesign healthcare for the next decade and beyond,” said Bloch.

Dr. Bloch spoke with other esteemed panelists about Sheba’s breakthrough cures and treatments and why Israel is leading the world in health innovations. Bloch spoke about Sheba’s new ARC Innovation Center which works to quickly and seamlessly bring start-up ideas to market.

“Our research teams work within the clinical department and are not separated from one another. They apply their own knowledge, technologies and abilities on the real clinical level – that’s what makes Sheba so unique and the products being developed so innovative.”

Sheba Medical Center has over 1900 physicians and 200 specialized researchers pursuing developments in numerous fields of study, including: pharmaceuticals, sophisticated data collection and sharing, artificial intelligence programs and smart technologies.

Dr. Bloch also touched on Sheba’s commitment to humanitarian crises across the globe. Even as Bloch spoke, a Sheba humanitarian team was quickly mobilizing to fly to Mozambique to assess the deadly destruction of Cyclone Idai. This kind of response is part of Sheba’s dedication to bring cutting edge medicine and care to those in desperate need.
