American University of Beirut Medical Centre

Referral/Teaching Hospital | Beirut, Lebanon

Hospital description

AUB-MC is a private non-profit 420 bed teaching institution. It offers extensive well maintained facilities and is one of the main healthcare centres for Lebanon.

It started in 1902, the when the Medical College purchased a property across the street from AUB Medical Gate and established a 200-bed hospital that provided ancillary services. The property housed an administrative building, homes for the superintendents, nurses, and student nurses, a kitchen, as well as multiple wards for gynecology, obstetrics, and children’s diseases. In 1905, the School of Nursing – the first of its kind in the Middle East – was founded.

Over the years, the need for continued expansion became clear. In 1970, a new state-of-the-art medical center – the American University of Beirut Medical Center – was inaugurated in the presence of then Prime Minister Rashid Karameh. The new medical center was built with a 420-bed inpatient capacity, an elaborate outpatient facility, an emergency department, research laboratories, classrooms, and offices for academic staff.
