Bab Al-Hawa Hospital is the flagship of healthcare in northern Syria.  In the first six months of 2017, staff at the Hospital provided much-needed health care in over 206,000 clinical encounters.  These included over 41,000 outpatient clinic attendances, over 11,500 emergency attendances and over 1,600 emergency surgical operations.

In the same period, the hospital carried out over 5,100 non-emergency specialist operations, over 2,270 kidney dialysis treatments, and over 4,400 CT scans.

The hospital boasts a state-of-the-art training centre, where a wide variety of medical and other healthcare-related courses are run. The aim of these courses it to develop the skills and knowledge of all healthcare staff in the hospital itself, as well as in the wider healthcare community.

The hospital is funded collaboratively by Syria Relief and other partners.  It is operated under the auspices of UOSSM, and is managed by a Board of Directors which includes representations from all stakeholders.
