Mount Lebanon Hospital (MLH) is a tertiary medical center that includes over 800 professionals and more than 250 physicians. An ongoing expansion will lift the total number of beds to 440, of which over 50 are exclusively dedicated for Intensive Care (ICU).
MLH has been accredited by the Joint Commission International (JCI) since 2016 and re-accredited in 2019.
MLH’s mission aims at improving the health of patients through the development of modern and effective models of care, based on education, innovation and research.
Along with its vision to provide innovative and high quality care for all patients and in line with continuous development, MLH took the commitment, challenge and privilege of becoming a university medical center through its affiliation with one of the top universities in Lebanon, the Balamand University (UOB).
The Balamand University has been accredited by multiple international agencies for their quality of academic standards in higher education. It has one of the most credible and praised faculty of medicine in Lebanon, with more than a hundred MD graduates yearly. The residency training program comprises more than 200 residents, in nearly 30 specialty programs.
This collaboration between MLH and UOB has been established in the spirit of uplifting the Lebanese healthcare system and advancing the university medical program trainings. This affiliation will be unique in its potential and objectives. The mutual commitment towards excellence in medical care and clinical clerkship is the ultimate mission of both partners.
It is in the perspective of building windmills in high winds and not raising protective walls that both institutions decided to stand up strong, facing the unprecedented challenges during this global crisis. Our pledge is to deliver professional healthcare services in the context of the utmost scientific and academic environment.
