Growing up with Maccabi
Maccabi Healthcare Services accompanies members throughout their lives, providing comprehensive medical services in all fields - from fertility treatments, pregnancy and birth to geriatric medicine, protected housing and Maccabi homes for senior citizens.
Maccabi offers all the medical services required in the fertility process - from preliminary testing and treatments administered by gynecologists, to IVF clinics located at Women's Health Centers throughout the country. At these centers, staffed by fertility specialists, advanced diagnoses and testing of fertility disorders are performed, including treatments using hormone therapy, artificial insemination and IVF (initial stages). Our members also have the option of obtaining some of these treatments at public or private hospitals associated with Maccabi.
Pregnancy and Birth
Maccabi accompanies its members throughout all stages of pregnancy. Pregnancy monitoring is performed by community-based gynecologists, while high risk pregnancies and multi-fetal pregnancies are monitored at Women's Health Centers. In addition, Maccabi also provides pregnancy monitoring services by the nursing staff, including instructional sessions with nurses at the Ministry of Health Well-Baby Centers and Maccabi Nursing Clinics.
Infant and Toddler Care
At Well-Baby Care Centers associated with Maccabi and the Ministry of Health throughout the country, infants receive care from birth to the age of five. Parents are invited to receive instruction and guidance at any of our Centers on topics relating to growth and development, and to vaccinate their children according to the national vaccination program. If necessary, we are equipped to provide appropriate medical treatment to infants or refer them to the appropriate medical or allied medical caregiver.
In each of Maccabi's organizational districts, our members have access to clinics specializing in developmental disorders. These clinics are staffed by specialists who have extensive experience and skills in the field. These physicians work in close collaboration with a multi-disciplinary allied medical team to provide optimal treatment.
Maccabi operates two clinics, in Haifa and Ramat Hasharon, which specialize in the treatment of adolescent eating disorders. Maccabi members benefit from direct access social and psychological services, with no need for a referral by a physician.
The high standard of Maccabi's services in the field of occupational medicine enables the treating physician, employers and the employee to oversee and maintain employees' health. These services include: employee intake examinations, periodical medical examinations under a physician's supervision for employees exposed to environmental (chemical, physical or biological) hazards and employees in special fields, employment fitness examinations and additional services such as medical equipment and vaccinations.
