Our History

The Stages of Establishing NNUH



The Establishment of An-Najah National University Hospital

At the end of 2013, the first phase of the project began with an area of 17000 square metres, including 100 beds and four operating and emergency rooms. The hospital was inaugurated in 2014.



The Expansion of Surgical Services

Several departments in the hospital expanded, and new departments opened, including an expansion of surgical services. This allowed the hospital to perform a variety of surgeries, including organ trasplantations, eye surgeries, corneal surgery and transplantation, open-heart surgeries, advanced liver surgeries, bone surgeries, and general surgery.



Advancements in the Oncology Department

The hospital has made advancements in areas related to oncology and spinal cord, pediatric treatment, blood diseases, women's health, including breast cancer and cosmetic surgery, kidney treatment, and vascular diseases. The hospital is currently the only centre for bone marrow transplantation for leukemia treatment in adults and soon for children as well.



The Institute for Education and Clinical Training & the Clinical Research Centre

The Clinical Education and Training Centre has opened for students to continue and enhance their academic process within the educational hospital. Additionally, a Clinical Research Centre has been launched to undertake scientific research, including collaborative research to find scientific and practical solutions in the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of health conditions affecting the Palestinian community, and to develop global research outcomes that align with the scientific research objectives of the centre.



The Joint Commission International Accreditation for Healthcare Quality Services

The hospital has achieved the distinction of being the first Palestinian academic medical center accredited by the Joint Commission International (JCI) for Healthcare Quality Services. This accreditation was granted based on the hospital's commitment to the JCI's assessment standards, which primarily focus on three main aspects:

  1. The first aspect pertains to the direct care and safety of patients.
  2. The second aspect centers around the hospital's administrative system.
  3. The third aspect involves standards for student training and development, in addition to scientific research.



The University's Centre for Kidney and Urology Surgery

The opening of the University's Centre for Kidney and Urology Surgery is a significant addition to NNUH, the university, and healthcare services in Nablus and the entire country. This development took place in 2022 alongside the expansion of the emergency department. The centre provides comprehensive medical services under one roof which eliminates the need for patients to endure the hassle and costs of travel or even intermittent treatment. Additionally, the centre plays a fundamental role in training university students and interns to become highly qualified professionals.



Kidney Disease Treatment Centre

Over the years, the hospital has witnessed a significant development in the services provided, including several expansions. These expansions have included the completion of the first phase of constructing a new building spanning 3,000 square meters. The Kidney Disease Treatment Centre houses 100 hemodialysis beds and 6 peritoneal dialysis beds, divided into four sections. This allows for operations to run with up to four shifts per day.
