The Sheba Summit 2018
Face to face with history’s richness, today’s innovations, and the promise of tomorrow
The Sheba Summit 2018, “The Future Hospital: Setting Strategies for 2030 and Beyond”, is a gathering like no other. On the one hand, it is a professional conference on the future of leading academic medical centers, in preparation for their changing roles, structure and services. On the other, it is an exclusive VIP voyage into Israel’s riveting cultural history and its cutting-edge health tech sector.
The conclusions drawn from the roundtables discussions will be shared in a broader forum of all Summit attendees, highlighting the key issues for leading academic medical centers as they navigate the rapidly changing healthcare environment over the next two decades and beyond.
When not addressing the future of healthcare, Summit participants will be travelling and exploring the Land of Israel – from the intensity of Jerusalem’s Old City to the quiet streets of a picturesque northern village, from Roman ruins to the Jaffa port, from a Tel Aviv gala to traditional Arab confections, and more. The Sheba Summit tour is a unique opportunity to experience this “old-new land” (as Theodor Herzl called her) first hand, as you learn about her past and become part of her future.

Some proposed working assumptions:
