Our customized packages to assist VIP groups or individuals can include:


24/7 on call service for all health issues
24/7 medical accompaniment available

EMA Care has top medical contacts throughout Israel, from the north through the south.

We can provide you with prompt doctor visits straight to your hotel room. If you are in any hospital, an English/Hebrew speaking health professional will be right by your side, translating and advocating for YOU to get the best care in Israel. We will speak to your physicians in Israel and at home to appropriately coordinate your care. Our health professionals will communicate professionally with your entire health team and with you, so that there are no unanswered questions and you feel well cared for.

Unfortunately, many unforeseen circumstances may happen while a person is away from home. EMA Care has treated top government officials who arrived in Israel already sick on their flight in! we met them in their hotel rooms and managed their care and follow up and no events had to be canceled because of the care they received. In another instance, a celebrity family got food poisoning and EMA Care staff was there on site to care for the family - discretely. Again- no changes of schedule were needed and the public never suspected any illness.

Gastrointestinal disorders, the flu, respiratory illnesses, infected insect bites, sprained ankles, and emergency appendicitis are some of the ailments VIPs have experienced while visiting Israel, and EMA Care has assisted in each case in getting the best care. EMA Care’s discrete staff knows how to communicate to and treat VIP visitors in Israel. In one case, a dignitary had acute appendicitis and was in the operating room an astonishing 58 minutes after arriving in the hospital. He was personally cared for by the ER Chief and Chief of Surgery.


VIP medical care is a specialty onto itself, and in Israel, getting the right care, the right English-speaking providers, the appropriate level of discretion and security, and the right level of medical coverage and coordination is of utmost importance.
