Hospitals

 

Israel's Public Hospitals

Hopefully you will not need to be admitted to hospital, failing this, there is a choice of being hospitalized in government run or private hospitals or Medical facilities.  The Health Funds work in conjunction with the government hospitals and also with many private Medical facilities. Some treatments and services are only offered at the hospitals on an outpatient basis.

Should you need to go to a hospital for any reason, you will be required to present a “confirmation of participation” (hit’chay’voot) by the health fund.  This document is only provided in conjunction with a doctor’s referral.  If you are taken to the emergency room, you may have to provide a authorization (hit’chay’voot) to the hospital within a certain time as specified by them. 

You may be able to speed up an operation etc. if you go to a private hospital or Medical center.

You can have a baby at any of the government run hospitals in Israel.  The midwives are very experienced and you can trust them. It is comforting if your gynecologist is affiliated to the hospital at which you are giving birth.

Our Tip

  • The Israel Poison Information Center at Rambam offers a 24 hour service.  I have used it and they were incredibly helpful.  Call: 04-854-2725

Private Medical Facilities

Private hospitals offer all the services of a government run hospital.  The lines are shorter and the care is much more personalized.  Some private Medical facilities only offer specific treatments and the health funds sometimes use these facilities for tests and treatments.

Family Health Clinics – Tipat Halav

The Family Health Clinics (Tipat Halav) run by the Ministry of Health, offer pre-natal and post-natal services to mothers and infants regardless of the health fund you belong to.  During your pregnancy, amongst other things, they will check your weight and take your blood pressure. They administer the inoculations for your children and check on their well-being.  They weigh, measure, give nutritional advice for infants, check development and give breast feeding advice.  They also have a list of doulas that you can contact, should you want that service.
