Williams Island Welcomes Prof. Yitshak Kreiss – the Director General of the Largest Hospital In Israel, Sheba Medical Center, Tel HaShomer

Sheba’s internationally renowned director general Prof. Yitshak Kreiss came to Williams Island on March 27 to discuss the trailblazing innovations emanating out of Israel’s Sheba Medical Center and the hospital’s relentless mission to advance healthcare across the globe, including in South Florida.

Aventura Mayor Enid Weisman, Aventura Commissioner Gladys Mezrahi, Aventura Commissioner Marc Narotsky, and Deputy Consul-General of Israel to Florida, Alabama, Mississippi and Puerto Rico Guy Gilady were among the local dignitaries who welcomed Prof. Kreiss to Williams Island.

Kreiss’ visit took place just days after Newsweek announced Sheba Medical Center, Tel HaShomer – the largest and most comprehensive hospital in Israel and the Middle East - as one of the 10 best hospitals across the entire globe.

According to Newsweek: "Sheba Medical Center-or Tel HaShomer Hospital-in Tel Aviv is a leader in medical science and biotechnical innovation, both in the Middle East and worldwide. The center's collaborations with international parties have advanced innovative medical practices, hospital systems and biotechnology.”

Kreiss’ Florida visit officially launched the opening of the American Friends of Sheba Medical Center, Tel HaShomer’s Florida office with an exclusive event to the Island Club on Williams Island, graciously hosted by Daphna Cramer and Lisa Pulver. American Friends of Sheba will help raise awareness in South Florida about Sheba’s incredible work around the world.

Prof. Kreiss told a standing-room only crowd that the future of healthcare is limitless: “We aspire to have world impact, to heal the world, through humanitarianism and medical innovation. We are eliminating the borders of traditional hospitals through tele-medicine, and we are creating the hospital of the future.”

Before becoming director general of Sheba, Prof. Kreiss served as Surgeon General of the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) from 2011-2014. One of the qualities he's most renowned for is his expertise in crisis leadership.

That expertise in crisis leadership has placed Sheba on the frontline of global humanitarian rescue missions. In fact, last week, a team of humanitarian medical experts and doctors from Sheba arrived in Beira, Mozambique to assess urgent medical and supply needs in the wake of the deadly cyclone. And just a few months ago, Sheba partnered with FAU to lead emergency management training sessions to prepare South Florida for worst-case scenarios.
