Description:
Ibn Sina Hospital is a hospital in Baghdad, Iraq which was built by four Iraqi doctors - Modafar Al Shather, Kadim Shubar, Kasim Abdul Majeed and Clement Serkis - in the mid-1960s. It was purchased for a fraction of its true value by the Iraqi government for use by Saddam Hussein, his family and the Baath Party elite. Uday Hussein was hospitalized there after being wounded in a failed assassination attempt in the mid-1990s. Although it was built as a facility for Iraq's ruling class, its owners provided free medical care and hospitalization to all Iraqis that were unable to afford treatment.

The hospital is situated in Baghdad's International Zone and was run by the United States Armed Forces from shortly after the 2003 liberation of Iraq until 30 September 2009. The hospital was staffed mainly by the US Army and its rotating Combat Support Hospital units as an emergency facility for critically wounded soldiers and civilians, including suspected and confessed insurgents. During the period of US administration of the Ibn Sina, the emergency room saw an average of 300 trauma cases per month.

On 1 October 2009, the hospital was officially handed back to the Government of Iraq as part of the US military drawdown from Baghdad.

The Ibn Sina was made famous through the widely viewed HBO documentary Baghdad ER, which featured the 86th Combat Support Hospital, one of several Army hospital units to staff the hospital.
