A Short Look at the History of the State Hospital of Sarajevo

Published online by Cambridge University Press:  28 June 2012


The State Hospital of Sarajevo has a tradition that is 127 years old. It is located on the spot where the first Turkish Army hospital—the first hospital on the territory of Bosnia and Herzegovina—was established in 1865. Through the ages, military health institutions in the city of Sarajevo always have been located on this spot. In its time, that first hospital was a modern health facility with its own running water and sewage system. It was used for the treatment of Turkish soldiers. Civilians had their facility built in 1866— the so-called Vakuf Hospital, the operation of which was aided occasionally by two military physicians.
