“I thank Minister Yuli Edelstein, who elected me to the position and I thank you for working together until the end of my term.

Prof. Levy took office exactly one year ago, in June 2020, following the entry of former Health Minister Yuli Edelstein. Edelstein chose him as a replacement for former CEO Moshe Bar-Siman Tov, who announced his resignation with the formation of the Netanyahu-Ganz government.

During his time at the Ministry of Health, the director general had to deal with the corona plague. When he officially retires, Levy will return to his position at Barzilai Hospital, which he has managed since 2012.

Minister Horowitz: “I would like to thank Prof. Hezi Levy, who volunteered to serve as the ministry’s director general during one of the most challenging periods known to the Israeli health system. Hezi has served the State of Israel with great professionalism, and I am sure he will continue to contribute his skills to the public health system.”
