The hospital commenced operations after necessary recruitment had been made home and abroad.
However, in order to ensure that the almost anyone could benefit from the services provided by the hospital and its modern equipment, the hospital extended its services to accommodate male patients and that was how National Hospital, Abuja came into existence from May 10, 2000.
