A welcome from the General Director

Allow me to welcome you to Jordan University Hospital (JUH), the first academic teaching hospital in the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan. Being a leader, JUH is also the first hospital in the Arab region, the second in the Middle East, and the eighteenth worldwide to receive the accreditation of the Joint Commission International (JCI).

 

JUH has been keen throughout the four decades of its history to provide a noble message and a clear vision that are based on patient care for Jordanians, Arabs, and citizens of neighboring countries. JUH also has clear objectives focused on provision of general and specialized medical care, advancement of scientific and medical research, and training of students of the health faculties at the University of Jordan and other Jordanian and Arab universities in the areas of medicine, dentistry, nursing, pharmacy, rehabilitation sciences as well as other health fields. In addition, JUH offers technical training and the qualifications required for the medical and paramedical professions at the national and Arab levels.

 

We are pleased through this website to offer you information related to the hospital, its development, vision, mission, objectives, and the specialized medical services provided to patients and visitors.

 

We have made sure in this prestigious medical institute to provide all sections and units with the latest medical devices and equipments. JUH has spearheaded in a plethora of surgical and medical treatments including surgical treatment of epilepsy, surgeries of brain tumors and cerebral vascular malformations, cochlear implants, surgery of congenital malformations in children, plastic surgery, bone marrow transplants in both children and adults, gastrointestinal capsule endoscopy, bariatric surgery by laparoscopy and liposuction devices, treatment of infertility and IVF, and treatment of high-risk pregnancy cases. The hospital has also established a laboratory for sleep disorders and a psychiatric unit.

 

JUH encompasses all major and sub- medical and clinical specialties containing (64) different specialties. It also conducts about twenty thousand surgical operations annually, in addition to treating more than half a million patients a year. The hospital has greatly considered the value of medical tourism for Arab and non-Arab patients whose numbers are approximately nine thousand patients annually from more than 25 nationalities.

 

In light of the growing demand for health care at the national and Arab levels, and the contribution of the hospital in supporting the Jordanian health care system in the area of medical tourism, a new section of private suites has been established. It consists of (20) private suites and (3) royal suites with high-caliber medical and hotel services.

It is our responsibility and commitment to provide the best medical services to our patients at the levels offered by the best hospitals in the world. These efforts have culminated in the hospital being granted multiple national and global accreditations in quality and distinguished services. Most recently, JUH has received the Joint Commission International (JCI) accreditation, and has been granted renewal certification by the International Organization for Standardization, the Hazard Analysis & Critical Control Points (HACCP) and the Health Care Accreditation Council (HCAC), all of which are medals of honor and an incentive for the hospital to continue on the road to excellence.

It is our promise to God, our homeland and its citizens, and Arab nationals to exert our best efforts to provide outstanding medical care to all patients under the patron of His Majesty King Abdullah II Bin Al-Hussein.

With best wishes of good health and wellness to all,
