The Kaplan Medical Center (KMC), located in Rehovot, Israel, was established in 1953 and is renown in Israel for the excellent medical services it gives to the over 700,000 population under its care.
The Kaplan Medical Center is an academic medical institution. Affiliated with the Hebrew University Medical School in Jerusalem, it is a teaching hospital with over 40 wards approved for Residency Training as well as for teaching medical students in their clinical years. In addition, The Kaplan Medical campus includes its Nursing School, Radiology Technicians School as well as a School for New Immigrant Physicians who require additional medical training.
In 2010, the Kaplan Medical Center was examined (passing with almost 100% approval) by the Joint Commission International (JCI) and received its accreditation. The accreditation process assesses the health care organization to determine if it meets the international set of excellence standards requirements designed to improve quality of care. A JCI accreditation will afford the KMC to gain not only an international reputation but also to be recognized for medical tourism by international insurance companies.
As a community hospital, the Kaplan Medical Center represents and consists of most advanced departments in all major medical fields and boasts a nationally recognized medical staff. Its medical staff collaborates with major academic and research institutions in Israel (primarily, with the Weizmann Institute of Science and The Hebrew University in Jerusalem) and abroad, to remain in the forefront of technology and medical standards.
Today, this over 600 beds medical center has 10 Operating Rooms, a 26 bed Emergency Room and admits annually over 60,000 patients. There are 130,000 ER’s admissions and 15,000 surgeries performed annually. Moreover, the hospital takes care of over 250,000 outpatients and delivers over 6,500 babies each year.
