INTRODUCTION: Luzmila Hospital (LH) is a private, 66-bed, acute care and community health hospital. Founded in 1948, LH is one of the oldest hospitals in Jordan providing comprehensive health and medical services for the general public. The hospital provides diagnostic and therapeutic services to inpatients and outpatients alike.
HISTORY: After the Arab-Israeli war of 1948, the Sisters Of Nazareth decided to transform the school they were running at the time into a hospital, with the intention of providing the necessary health services for the masses of refugees and the wounded caused by the war. They named this hospital after Contessa Luzmila who donated all the needed financial support. This hospital was in full operation in 1948 and was officially licensed by the Ministry Of Health in 1950.
In the late 1960`s the Sisters Of Nazareth decided to hand in the administration of the hospital to Dr. Sharajian. In 1978 the present administration, under the leadership of Surgeon Drs. Saliba Baqaen & Adnan Masanat, took over.
MEDICAL STAFF: There are two general surgeons, three anaesthetists, two radiologists, and nine resident doctors (five seniors and four juniors). The number of nurses exceeds fifty-five. Add to this a substantial number of local and international consultant physicians and experts in different medical fields who regularly refer their patients to this hospital for treatment and use all the available medical facilities this hospital provides.
