Our Healthcare System

The Physician at the Heart of the Medical System

At the heart of Maccabi Healthcare Services is a system of independent salaried physicians who provide services to Maccabi members. The staff is comprised of primary care physicians, consultants in various medical fields and specialists in a broad range of medical specialties.

Maccabi invests efforts and resources to provide ongoing professional education and to update its physicians on innovations in the realm of medicine, thus enabling Maccabi members to benefit from the most well-informed and advanced form of medical treatment.

Maccabi functions on the basis of a decentralized organizational approach. Its six regional centers, including 150 branches and clinics, provide full access to Maccabi Healthcare services for all members throughout the country. These branches provide medical services to members from Kiryat Shmona, Zefat and Nahariya in the north to Beer Sheva, Arad, Mitzpe Ramon and Eilat in the south.

Optimal Efficiency - for Comprehensive Healthcare

The modern service approach, based on outsourcing, ensures optimal efficiency and supports:

A self-owned strategic core of hundreds of employed physicians, medical diagnostic and therapeutic centers, pharmacies and hospitals.

Service provision agreements with the best independent service providers in every field. This includes the best physicians and healthcare workers, diagnostic and therapeutic services and hospitals.

Control over service quality.

Flexibility in contracting with service providers on the basis of quality and financial considerations.

This methodology is implemented through external service contracts with a broad range of service providers comprising thousands of independent physicians, more than 300 leading medical experts in hospital services who provide consultations, hundreds of diagnostic centers and pharmacies, alongside private and public hospitals.

After-Hours Urgent Care Centers

After-Hours Urgent Care Centers operate throughout the country, after regular business hours. Although members pay a users' fee, which is standard practice in emergency medical services, the rate is lower than self-referrals to hospital emergency rooms.

Pharmacies

A network of over 600 pharmacies throughout the country offer Maccabi members prescription drugs. Maccabi's network of pharmacies is the only one of its kind in Israel and one of the only pharmacy chains in the world which employ satellite technology. Through its link up with the Amos satellite, the pharmacies immediately update each member's pharmacological file, thereby preventing the provision of contraindicated drugs or erroneous dosages. Maccabi's health division determines the policy of classifying drugs for procurement and supply to the pharmacies.
