The hospital establishment idea dates back to nearly 76 years ago by the will of Thabit Thabit Georgy who is an Italian of Syrian origin. Thabit lived in Egypt and bequeathed his wealth for building a hospital for treating endemic diseases on 7300 square meter land at Al-Haram Main Street and submitted it to the state. Cases were resolved between government and inheritors by implementing his will and issuing a ministerial decree in 1990 by transferring guardianship on the bequest to Faculty of Medicine. The project started in 1997 then building work was suspended then returned in 2002 and suspended again. Suspension occurred twice because of shortage in financial approvals until the project was restored in November 2013.
