Those living in the area are among the poorest in the region, making our Anabta Clinic an essential service provider.

In 2007, in response to the growing movement restrictions and the high rates of eye conditions in the West Bank, SJEHG set up its clinic in Anabta.

The St John Anabta Clinic treats over 20,000 patients every year, charging subsidized prices for consultations and procedures for all, and completely waiving fees for those who cannot afford to make any contribution. The clinic is easily accessible from the major areas of Nablus, Tulkarem and Jenin and serves the population of the surrounding area, which is approximately one million.

When the clinic had its first full year of service in 2008, it saw nearly 9,000 patients and we have gone from strength to strength since then;

  • This number has steadily increased every year, and in 2015 we saw a total of 22,000 patients, including 7,000 children.
  • In 2015 we referred over 3,600 patients to our main hospital in Jerusalem for expert treatment.
  • Apart from our charitable care, what sets the clinic apart in the region is the subspecialty care we offer. Specialist doctors from our flagship hospital in Jerusalem travel to Anabta weekly to offer their services. We are the only clinic that can offer this specialist care in the region.
