Al Najah National University Hospital is currently the only provider of medical services related to advanced electrical physiology, complex open heart surgery, and great bone marrow transplantation for both adults and children to treat leukemia, making the hospital the most advanced and modern health and medical service provider in Palestine. , In the future patients from all over the West Bank and Gaza Strip.

Although the hospital was established just three years ago, it has grown rapidly and dramatically, becoming the scientific medical destination for many Palestinian consultants, specialists, experts and nurses, and attracting large numbers of students from around the world.
