Fostering Innovation

Clalit Innovation is committed to partnering with entrepreneurs, start-ups and investors in order to develop and create innovative solutions to health and health care challenges. Using our wealth of knowledge and data, expert teams and excellent research foundations, we can collaborate with investors, founders and partners to develop multidimensional initiatives with an impact on the future of healthcare in Israel and worldwide.


Clalit Innovation Network

Clalit's innovation network includes twelve innovation centers, spread in our hospitals and the community. Each of these innovation centers has a unique purpose and characteristic, which is derived from its unique population, its geographical location, and the centers of excellence in the hospital or district, among other factors.
The challenges and areas of practice of the centers are based on real-life needs that clinicians, therapists, and other employees encounter every day.

Clalit's innovation centers share their accumulated knowledge and projects, whether they are cross-organizational or cross-clinical.

Our Innovation Centers Manager and Business Development team will be glad to receive your request and maintain collaborations in any way they can:
