Since 1867, AUB has provided first class education in medicine and biomedical research while delivering quality and excellence in patient care. Accredited by the Joint Commission International (JCIA) on hospital accreditation, the AUB Medical Center (AUBMC) is the leading tertiary and quaternary care referral medical center for the Middle East region.
In April 2011, AUBMC announced a comprehensive plan for future growth detailing its vision to be the leading academic medical center in Lebanon and the region by delivering excellence in patient-centered care, outstanding education, and innovative research. In addition to a new 600-bed medical complex that will include both adult and pediatric hospitals, AUBMC will also establish specialized centers of excellence in a number of areas including oncology, neuroscience, and heart and vascular disease.
The Medical Center is also partnering with other medical institutions in the region and around the world to increase patient access and strengthen the delivery of health care. These efforts will ensure that AUB will be able to continue to serve the peoples of Lebanon and the region as it has done for almost 150 years.
