Hammoud Hospital University Medical Center

In 1966 the hospital began as a 20-bed maternity facility. During the 1970s, the Hospital grew to a 100 patient bed multidisciplinary hospital, with more operating theaters as well as Laboratory Medicine and Radiology departments.

The hospital continued to provide high quality medical care throughout the 1980s during the Lebanese Civil War. During the late 1990s, the hospital acquired more advanced medical technologies, expanded and diversified its medical departments to include a Cardiovascular & Thoracic Surgery Department. The hospital is extremely proud to have performed the first cardiac transplant operation in the Arab Middle East in 1999.

The hospital is currently a 325-bed facility that treats more than 24,000 patients/year and performs more than 10,000 surgeries/year. The hospital has one of the biggest Nephrology and Dialysis departments and performs the highest numbers of renal transplants in the country. HHUMC also has one of the largest Intensive Care Units in Lebanon.
