An- Najah Hospital

The An-Najah National University Hospital was established in 2013 in ‎cooperation with the ‎Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences at An-Najah ‎National University. The Hospital is ‎considered one of Palestine’s leading ‎institutions in the field of health care. Since the ‎establishment of An-Najah’s ‎Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences in 1999, the University ‎has ‎achieved numerous accomplishments in terms of medical care and health ‎sciences, most ‎recent of which is establishing An-Najah National University ‎Hospital in Nablus. ‎

The Hospital is a non-profit medical institution and the only teaching ‎hospital in Palestine, and the only teaching hospital in Palestine that ‎provides clinical education and training to future and current health ‎professionals.‎

Nablus, as the second largest Palestinian city in the West Bank, with more ‎than 340,000 residents, it is the main hub for medical services for more than ‎one million people. With only 24 public hospitals in the West Bank and ‎Gaza Strip, the number of clinical beds for the entire Palestinian population ‎is one bed per 1,000 inhabitants! This disparity pushed An-Najah’s Faculty ‎of Medicine and Health Sciences to build the first university hospital in ‎Palestine which started in 2008.‎

With 120 beds in an area of 17,000 m2, the Hospital includes a well-‎equipped intensive care unit, an emergency room, a dialysis unit, a ‎radiology department (X-ray and ultrasound) and a CT scan. The Hospital ‎offers different services for complex medical conditions which require ‎cardiac care and eye surgery, including cornea transplant and artificial ‎cornea transplant. The Hospital provides advanced liver surgery, general ‎surgery and orthopaedics. The Hospital also provides healthcare services ‎for children including advanced spinal surgery, pediatric cancer and ‎childhood diseases.‎

The Hospital is currently the only provider of medical services in terms of ‎advanced electrophysiology, complex open heart surgery and bone marrow ‎transplant to treat leukemia for both adults and children. Also, the Hospital ‎receives patients from all parts of the West Bank and Gaza Strip.‎

Recently established, the Hospital grew and expanded rapidly becoming a ‎scientific medical ‎destination for many Palestinian consultants, specialists, ‎experts and nurses and attracting ‎large numbers of students from around ‎the world. ‎

It is worth mentioning that An-Najah National University Hospital has two ‎branches. The first branch is at Al-‎Ittihad Hospital in Nablus, which is a ‎medical oncology unit with 28 clinical beds for both ‎children and adults. ‎The second branch is in Attil town, Tulkarm, which was established in ‎‎2019.‎
