Yesterday, the Ministry of Health published its National Quality Indicators Report for the Israeli health care system, among all Israeli hospitals. Yet again, the Hillel Yaffe Medical Center has proven no less than excellent results in the indicators set for it. The report refers to 2019, before the coronavirus (COVID-19) period. In that year, the Hillel Yaffe Medical Center successfully met the required indicators, and achieved an average score of 9.97 out of 10. This score positioned it as one of the excellent hospitals categorized as large.
The review included checking indicators such as performance of hip surgery within 48 hours of arrival at the hospital, cardiac catheterization in under 90 minutes from arrival at the hospital, pain assessment in the recovery room, administration of antibiotics following a hysterectomy, caesarean section, colorectal surgery, and others.

This week, the hospital welcomed this important achievement, which can be added to excellent figures in the past in this area. Director of the Hillel Yaffe Medical Center, Dr. Mickey Dudkiewicz said: “We work all the time, on all fronts – quality and professionalism, innovation and technology, and the service experience – so as to offer the very best treatment to our patients, alongside concern for both the patients’ families and our staff. The work our staff does is not simple, in complicated conditions, due to the many tasks facing them, but the results speak for themselves. We always take great pride in seeing our efforts recognized. I believe that despite coronavirus, we will continue to provide the very best for our patients and their families, in the coming years too.”
