Soroka: Israel’s Iron Dome for Health
Soroka Israel’s second largest and its most strategic hospital, located in one of the country’s most diverse areas. The sole major medical center for the entire Negev, it serves over 1 million residents in an area that comprises 60% of Israel’s land. During Operation Protective Edge we cared for over 1,200 of Israel’s wounded sons and daughters, including 750 soldiers. We offer recognized excellence across the entire spectrum of medical care: prevention, diagnosis, research, trauma, genetics and cancer care. Soroka is essential to meeting the medical needs of the Israel Defense Forces, who are currently moving large bases to the Negev. Soroka is a symbol of peaceful coexistence: we provide excellent healthcare to all, regardless of race, religion or politics. Our unique healthcare institution is a true Israeli national treasure.
