Continuing a tradition of excellence: Mayanei Hayeshua with third largest number of births, rated first in preventing Cesarean sections.
Every year in November, the Israel Society for Maternal-Fetal Medicine publishes a report containing data on all hospitals in Israel. Analysis of the 2017 report shows that once again, approximately 12,000 women chose to give birth at Mayanei Hayeshua, ranking it once more as the hospital with the third largest number of births in Israel, despite the fact that in the hospital’s vicinity alone are three of the largest hospitals in Israel.
“The fact that so many women prefer to come to us to give birth speaks for itself,” says Professor Yossi Lesing, Director of the Maternity and Gynecology Division, and adds, “This demonstrates that we are first-rate professionals, that we are welcoming and embracing, and mainly, that we are trusted by the new mothers who choose to vote with their feet again and again.”
A particularly noteworthy figure in the published report is the rate of Cesarean sections performed at the Medical Center, which is significantly lower than other hospitals in the country. In 2017, only 8.5% of the deliveries at Mayanei Hayeshua were performed via Cesarean sections, while the national average was far higher –18.3%. This figure, too, is a direct result of the medical team’s professionalism and experience and the awareness that most mothers have delivered a number of babies and that they are there to enable them in the best and safest manner possible.
