• This hospital with 7000 square meters of infrastructure was built in 1325 by the late Mr. Mohammad Sadegh Naghavi and was handed over to the Kashan Endowment and Charity Office along with a collection of endowed properties, and then in 1990 it was covered by the University of Medical Sciences.

• Also in 1381, another building in the hospital, called M.R.I building, was constructed and commissioned by health donors, and in 1384, the main building of the hospital, which was built in 1325.[2]

Matini HospitalEdit

Matini Hospital was built in 1344 by the late Mr. Matini, one of Kashan's benefactors, and was put into operation in 1346. The center has general surgery, pediatrics and emergency departments to provide services to patients. After that, the eye, ear, nose and throat wards replaced the general surgery ward. In early 1990, the pediatric ward was transferred to Shahid Beheshti Hospital and this center continued to operate as a specialized eye, ear, nose and throat hospital.

Outpatient units including clinics, paraclinic (laser), audiometry, laboratory and reception, discharge and cash units were located in the basement and ground floor. The first floor was dedicated to the assembly hall and the Trauma Research Center. The Trauma Research Center was transferred to Shahid Beheshti Hospital in early 1985, and has now been replaced by a Refractive Surgery Center (LASIK) and a speech therapy unit.

This hospital, with its committed medical facilities and staff and with experience in diagnosing diseases and treating patients, has been able to provide desirable medical services to the people of Kashan and other neighboring cities.[3]

Kargar nejad hospitalEdit

The treating Akhavan hospital has been in use since 1955. Since 2013 the hospital was moved to a new location and new name (Kargarnejad Hospital). Now the hospital has an area of 6600 square meters on two floors.

The Psychiatric Hospital was established in1991 on the site of a hospital that was previously an internal ward and did not comply with psychiatric standards, called the Akhavan Hospital, which initially included a men's psychiatric ward with 19 beds and a women's psychiatric ward with 20 beds. A small section of 8 beds was added as a men's emergency.

From the beginning, the instability of the hospital due to the age of the  building and non-standard psychiatric hospital, made officials to consider building a new standard center.

Thus, with the encouragement of Mr. Javad Kargarnejad, the university started the project of building a 101-bed psychiatric hospital in 2005. This hospital was built next to Shahid Beheshti Hospital to be close to the General Hospital.

In November 2012, the hospital was transferred to a new center and Mr. Javad Kargarnejad Psychiatric Hospital was inaugurated in the presence of the Minister of Health and medical education.

This hospital is built on a land with an area of about 6600 square meters and in two floors. The ground floor includes medical and paraclinical wards and units, and the first floor includes administrative and support units.[4]
