LAU Medical Center-Rizk Hospital


LAU’s expansion into the field of medical education was buttressed by the acquisition of a majority shareholder position in the LAU Medical Center-RH. This large medical campus in the heart of Beirut is designed to support LAU’s schools of Medicine, Nursing and Pharmacy while providing clinical facilities and services to the community.

LAU Medical Center-Saint John’s Hospital 


Inaugurated in 2021, the LAU Medical Center-Saint John’s Hospital in the Jounieh/Byblos area adds enormous value to medical practice in a major part of the country. Managed and operated by LAU, it is the only university medical center in that region.

In addition to three advanced operating rooms and an OR in the Emergency Department, the 85-bed medical center offers the Jounieh/Byblos area the only stroke-ready facility with a state-of-the art interventional set-up and 160-slice CAT scanner for ultra-rapid evaluations. Notably, surgeries at the medical center can be transmitted live to anywhere in the world via video and sound.
