Hospital History

1940 to 1960

The chair of mental health patients within the medical school was created in 1940. During those years, psychiatry education was limited to theoretical courses taught by the late Dr. Rezaei. Also, once or twice a year, the late Dr. MirSepasi held clinical classes for the students at the municipal madhouse. In 1946, the current location of the Roozbeh Hospital, was owned by the madhouse and a section named polyclinic was created. In 1950, a 30-bed section was created at the current Imam-Khomeini hospital (which was formerly named, 1000-bed hospital) and later in 1951 this section was transferred to the current location of Roozbeh Hospital. That was how, Roozbeh Hospital officially joined the University of Tehran. In 1955, construction of the first psychiatric hospital was initiated in the garden of this hospital; in the year of 1956 Roozbeh Hospital included mental sections 1 and 2. In 1960 the building of the hospital was reconstructed and the current men-only sections 2 and 3 and also the current women-only 1 and 2 were added to the building. In 1960 with the inauguration of new buildings, the capacity of the hospital was increased to 100 beds.

In 1970 the Vaziri Hospital was closed down and the neurology section was transferred to Roozbeh Hospital. During this transfer, 20 out of 100 beds (10 for men, 10 for women) of the psychiatry section were assigned to the neurology section. Also, the electroshock and the electroencephalography sections were commenced in the hospital. In the year 1974, the hospital included one women-only and two men-only sections, one neurology section, and one occupational therapy section. In 1976 Mr. Noshiravani, a philanthropist, constructed a 30-bed section and donated it to mental health patients and thus the capacity of the hospital was increased to 130 beds. The occupational therapy section was built in the same year and the upstairs of the section was assigned to psychology section.

1970 to 1976
1977 to 1988

In 1977, a 2-floor building was built for use as library and hospital section. In 1979, the number of the beds increased to 150 with the addition of 20 beds for children. But, in the 1981 the children section was shut down and transferred to women-only section. In 1391, a new building was built for nursing station and library and in 1992 the old library was transitioned to an emergency with 15 beds, increasing the total capacity of the hospital to 165. In the late 1997, a 30-bed section was recreated and changed to children section. This section was officially initiated by the dean of university in 1988.

The emergency ward was opened in 1997 with the assignation of 5 beds to men and 5 beds to women in the general clinic area and in the case of emergency admits, the allocated area was utilized. In the late 2000, addiction section with 13 beds was originated by the alteration of men-only section 4. In 2003, the upper floor of the children psychiatry section was built and donated to Roozbeh Hospital with the endeavors of Mr. Kermanian. This section was assigned to girl children psychiatry section and was officially opened in the presence of the university dean. The result was the increase in the number of the beds in children section from 20 to 40 and the overall bed count of the hospital to 180. In 2007, construction of an approximate 300 square meters in the basement of the clinic, led to initiation of the psychiatry emergency with 16 beds capacity which was first utilized in 2007 and increased the number of the total beds count of the hospital to 196. In 2011 a major reconstruction took place in men-only sections 1 and 2 and also, a new section was built to which the men-only section 4 was transferred. This resulted in an increase of the active bed counts to 204.

1997 to 2011

Currently, the hospital is considered the first governmental modern psychiatry hospital in Iran and its mission is to provide education, healthcare, and research services in the field of psychiatry.
