The Moroccan hospital in Kosovo first opened in December
1999. Its mission has always been clear: to treat patients
from all communities in Kosovo.
Five years after its activation, the hospital achieves
its mission of by delivering free services that cover
a broad spectrum of needs.
Though emergency services account for the majority of
medical care, Moroccan doctors also provide cardiology,
pediatrics and surgery. From a public health point of
view, the hospital is a success. Twenty-two doctors and
122 personnel care for 100 to 150 patients each day. This
demonstrates a high level of KFOR commitment and demonstrates
the need for permanent medical capabilities in Kosovo.
Doctors work closely with Moroccan welfare officers,
who meet people facing difficulties. Thanks to their knowledge
of the situation, these officers are able to quickly organize
distribution of clothing, food, medicines, and also arrange
limited at-home consultations.
This is achieved through close cooperation with CIMIC
units, the military hospital, international organizations
and the local administration.
The hospital has also welcomed Kosovo’s future:
in 5 years, more than 1,800 children were born in this
