The Military Hospital is a hospital in northeastern Nouakchott, Mauritania. It is located to the northeast of the Ophthalmological Hospital.[1]

In October 2012 Mohamed Ould Abdel Aziz, Mauritania's president, spent eight hours in this hospital. He had been operated upon by two doctors after being shot by government troops in what was said to be an accident. He was flown to France for further treatment after his stay in the hospital.[2]
