Abstract

The work of the War Hospital in Tomislavgrad during the war in Bosnia and Herzegovina from 1992 to 1995 is described. The War Hospital in Tomislavgrad was one of the first medical institutions organized in Bosnia and Herzegovina, with the intention of providing surgical treatment and care to soldiers, local civilians and refugees who found shelter in this part of the country. It was located on the main communication route connecting Bosnia and Herzegovina and the south part of Croatia. During the four-year period 23.191 examinations, of which 8.341 were first-time examinations, and 1.547 surgical operations were performed. The War Hospital provided a high level of surgical and anesthesiologic service in an area where none existed before the war. All patients were treated regardless of their nationality or religion, thus mitigating the consequences of the war.
