Al-Hawash Private University is one of the leading private institutions of higher education in Syria. It was founded in 2007 as Al-Hawash Private University for Pharmacy and Cosmetology by the Presidential Decree No 258. Five years later, in 2012, the University was renamed as Al-Hawash Private University. HPU is a non-profit university accredited by the Ministry of Higher Education of Syria.
The hospital is located in the heart of Syria - the country that has been suffering from the protracted social unrest and financial crisis since 2011. Such an extremely hard situation has led to the destruction of many hospitals and forced many physicians and health professionals to leave the country. Moreover, it has caused the outbreak of illnesses and resulted in thousands of injured people who need health care. Since its inception, HPU has been contributing to the development of the local community and the Syrian society as a whole. Therefore, the implementation of this medical project, especially during the crisis that hit Syria in the recent years, is HPU’s aspiration. The project's main goal is to establish a modern non-profit medical institution that answers all the increasing medical needs in the area.
