Brief History

Named after the famous Unani physician of early twentieth century who practiced in the region; this tertiary care facility has been established amidst the rural areas of Northern Kashmir.
It is supervised by a board of directors, constituted by renowned medical practitioners of the region, in collaboration with a national and international advisory board.
After identifying the need for such an institution in the region, the board of directors commissioned phase I of this project in November 2001 as a unit of the Qudsiyya Health Care and Education Trust, Sopore.
Initially the hospital provided much needed primary care facilities to the region, however, it has increased its scope of services and presently provides state of the art surgical care facility, has the only stroke rehabilitation center and a well equipped modern investigation block. A Cancer Centre has already started providing medical oncology services and basic surgical oncology services. Efforts are on to strengthen its surgical oncology base and start radiation oncology, with the Grace of Allah.


The Northern region of Kashmir extending up to the far flung areas of district Kupwara is in need of health care facilities to provide quality medical care, including the basic diagnostic and treatment facilities. A population of more than 1.5 million which reside in these areas, within a perimeter of 60 kilometers, do not have access even to a properly equipped secondary care hospital; an intensive care unit is indeed beyond the imagination of these people. Hence, the purpose of this institute is to provide a state of the art health care facility to the population of this region.
The phase I of this hospital was inaugurated on 23rd of November, 2001 in a simple ceremony, where the Director of Health Services was the Chief Guest. Appreciating the management for this bold step, he commended the board of directors for establishing such an institution in the middle of a rural area, where health care facilities tend to be primitive.  He stressed on the need of providing primary care and much needed preventive health care services in this institution in addition to the planned tertiary health care. It was decided that the board of directors will work for realizing these objectives.
