The healthcare sector is in dire need of a transformation that would lead to more sustainable consumer-based solutions.  

To spearhead this, Sheba Medical Center, the largest hospital in Israel that was recognized as being among the top 10 in the world by Newsweek in March 2019, 2020, and 2021, launched ARC.
