Today, 800 meters from the birthplace of Jesus Christ, one special door is always open to the poor and destitute expectant mothers; Holy Family Hospital - Bethlehem, a state of the art maternity hospital, because "the poorest deserve the best".
The Obstetric and gynaecology department has a total capacity of 45 beds including a 6 bed day care unit. The state of the art labor ward is equipped with 7 delivery rooms, a 2 bed recovery/ICU and an emergency caesarean section operating room. The department has also 2 other elective surgery operating rooms.
With nearly 90,000 new lives born here since 1990, the Holy Family Hospital remains a beloved institution within the Bethlehem community and an indispensable resource for women and children who have no alternative options for health care in government facilities.
Patients travel from the cities of Hebron, East Jerusalem and sometimes from Ramallah and Jericho to come to our state-of-the-art facility, knowing that it is the only hospital that can save the lives of their children who are less than 32 weeks pregnant.
In fact, the Holy Family Hospital gives birth to about 70% of children born in the Bethlehem region (over 4,700 in 2019 alone).
