Newly-established Comprehensive Cancer Center, the only such center in the Negev
Transforming Cancer Care
Every Israeli deserves top quality medical treatment, especially during the hardest times. For cancer patients from Southern Israel, surviving their illness is doubly difficult, as there is today no comprehensive cancer center in the South of the country. Soroka believes that this must change, and so we are working to establish Israel’s finest cancer center, to provide world-class treatment and research for the 1,000,000 residents of Israel’s south, and for all Israelis needing medical care.
The New Comprehensive Cancer Center at Soroka known as the Legacy Heritage Cancer Center for the Negev & The Larry Norton Institute serves more than 18,000 cancer patients every year at Soroka, including 750 children. By leveraging Soroka’s connection with Ben Gurion University and its location in the burgeoning technology hub of Be’er Sheva, the new comprehensive cancer care center at Soroka is set to be the most advanced cancer treatment facility in the Middle East.
