HIWOT FANA SPECIALIZED UNIVERSTY HOSPITAL
Hiwot Fana Hospital was established during the Italian aggression to Ethiopia (between 1928-1933 E.c) to serve Italian soldiers. It was built mainly to provide medical care for the occupying army, but it continued to deliver health service after expulsion of the Italians and liberation of the country. After the end of the Italian invasion, the hospital had been serving as a referral hospital for the community around the area known as Hararghe.
Hiwot Fana had different names in different periods (Chefe, Morate, Prince Mekonin) and was named as “Hiwot Fana Hospital” during the Derg era. After the formation of FDRE, Hiwot Fana Hospital was run by Harari Regional Health Bureau. After July 14, 2010 the Harari Regional Health Bureau handed over the administration and service provision of the hospital to Haramaya University and has since been named “Hiwot Fana Specialized University Hospital”.
