Clalit is the only health organization in Israel that boasts an extensive network of hospitals located all over the country. Clalit maintains a total of 14 general and special care hospitals, including two psychiatric hospitals, each with ambulatory as well as in-patient care, a full care rehabilitation hospital and two long-term care hospitals with rehabilitation and nursing facilities for the chronically ill and the aged.
CLALIT members are hospitalized either at one of Clalit’s eight general hospitals or at a government or public hospital for whose services Clalit pays in full. Members are also entitled to hospital services not included in the “Health Ministry Healthcare Service Basket” through Clalit complementary insurance, available at low cost. All Clalit hospitals are university affiliated
Clalit’s interest in specialized medical care for children led to the establishment of one of CLALIT’s most prestigeous and unique medical facilities, the Schneider Children’s Medical Center of Israel (SCMCI), which is an advanced, 224-bed ,tertiary medical facility.
