NEW YORK, NY — In its Health Quality Indicators Report for 2021, published this week, the Israel Ministry of Health has awarded Hadassah Hospital Mount Scopus the top score of 10 among small hospitals, tying it for first place with The Baruch Padeh Medical Center, Poriya. Among large hospitals, Hadassah Hospital Ein Kerem received a score of 9.99, only 0.01 point behind the two first-place winners. The two Hadassah hospitals comprise the Jerusalem-based Hadassah Medical Organization, one of Israel’s leading medical centers.

The Health Quality Indicators Report is a critical part of the health ministry’s National Program for Quality Indicators. The program aims to promote the Israeli health system’s quality of medical care in key areas, including diagnosis time, waiting periods and patient treatment.

Said Hadassah Director General Prof. Yoram Weiss, MD, "The leading positions that our medical center has reached are the result of hard, dedicated work and the full investment and effort demonstrated by the Hadassah staff in both our hospitals, at all hours of the day – and without a break.”

Together, Hadassah’s two hospitals care for more than one million patients every year and set the standard for excellence in medical treatment and research in Israel. The experience and ingenuity of Hadassah’s doctors and scientists yield life-saving innovations in all areas of medicine, including therapeutics, diagnostic medical devices and digital health.
