JERUSALEM (VINnews) — Israel’s 2020 peace agreement with Bahrain has led to significant business opportunities for Israeli companies and organizations. Recently, two health cooperation agreements were signed between Israel’s Sheba-Tel Hashomer Medical Center and the two largest hospitals in Bahrain, Salmaniya Hospital and King Hamad University Hospital.
In March, Prof. Yitshak Kreiss, Director-General of Sheba Medical Center, and Dr. Ahmed Al Ansari, Director of Salmaniya Medical Complex, agreed to a series of exchange programs and collaborations in the fields of medical training, innovation and research.
Recently Col. Prof. Hashem Hasan of King Hamad University Hospital also signed an agreement with Sheba to collaborate on training staff, sharing knowledge as well as doing joint research and technology development.
Yoel Har Even – director of the ‘Sheba Global’ division, led two delegations from Sheba to Bahrain to implement the cooperation programs.
“This is a historic opportunity to have a real connection with the Kingdom of Bahrain,” Har Even said. “The collaboration that began with the health system in Bahrain, will intensify in the coming months and include joint training of workers in the Bahraini election system, medical treatment – mainly through Sheba’s remote medical system Beyond Sheba, joint research and more.”
In 2020, Sheba Medical Center was ranked ninth by Newsweek among 50 leading hospitals from 21 different countries.
