Kowsar Hospital

We take care of it all. The most critically ill patients, the most challenging medical problems. Minor illnesses—and chronic disease. The birth of healthy babies—and the healthy lives of older adults.

For more than a quarter of a century, Shiraz Kowsar Hospital has set the highest standard for health care—and reached and surpassed it year after year.

We are a not-for-profit, 300-bed medical center in the center of the nation’s cultural capital—and every day, hundreds of people in the region depend on us for their care. In the last 10 years alone, the hospital opened its door for nearly 1.5 million inpatient and outpatient visits by residents from throughout the South Iran.

We are the busiest and largest non-university hospital in Shiraz, Fars and the surrounding area—and serve as referral center and the central hub for the region’s most advanced acute medical care.

But we are much more. Our primary and secondary health services help our community’s residents get and stay healthy, and help to improve patients’ quality of life by managing chronic illness.

Our inpatient services, education and research programs, outpatient care and community outreach initiatives are all aimed at meeting today’s health care needs—and at leading the way to meet the future health needs of the nation.
