On 2 November 1993, the historical public address of Heydar Aliyev, the national leader of the Azerbaijani people, on radio and television became a necessary program for the reconstruction and formation of the Armed Forces completely. The great leader's word and deed led to great revival and enthusiasm in the Internal Troops. It was during that time that as a result of the battle at Fuzuli direction by the Internal Troops, Horadiz border post and over 12 villages were liberated from occupation in January 1994. It was then that many qualified doctors volunteered to serve in a military hospital.
After the cease-fire in 1994, the second stage, that is, Formation and Development, construction period began in the life of the Internal Troops.
At that time, the Internal Troops had a great responsibility. One of the main tasks of the troops was to maintain the stability of the republic, social security, briefly, the well-being of every citizen. The personnel of the military hospital were also part of such activities; they were involved almost in all the operations with other units of the troops, and the brigades of the doctors were able to cope with their duties.
All of these activities, service have played great role in the protection of the statehood, improvement of the rule of law and the criminogenic situation in general. The MIA administration and the Commander of Internal Troops have always valued the servicemen for their professionalism and courage shown for the sake of our state and statehood and highly appreciated them. Thus, 180 soldiers of the military unit were awarded various medals for “Perfect Service”, 158 of them with medal of “Anniversary” and 157 servicemen were awarded with “20th Anniversary” badge of the Internal Troops.
The recent years have been included to the history of the Internal Troops as the history of construction. Residential buildings, canteens, baths and laundry complexes and other social facilities have been built according to European standards.
- Reception, Department of Therapy, Department of urology-nephrology, department of surgery, skin-venereal department, Department of psychiatric diseases, functional-diagnostic department, anesthesiology and intensive care department, surgery block, pharmacy, infection department and rehabilitation department.
In addition, there is pharmacy that contains all the medicines required, which is in use since 11 January 1993.
In a word, all military men and their family members applying to the military hospital of the Internal Troops are subjected to preliminary clinical examination, if necessary, placed in the relevant departments; and urgent medical assistance is provided. At the same time patients are provided with ambulatory and outpatient services.
Military Hospital with rich experience has celebrated its 22th anniversary
The establishment of the Military Troops of the Internal Troops comes at a time when heavy fighting operations were carried out against the Armenian aggressors for the freedom of our lands. According to the relevant decision of the Cabinet of Ministers dated on 10 January 1993, the building belonging to the “Derin Ozuller” factory was intended for hospital and was given to the Internal Troops balance. Thus, the hospital of the Troops started functioning with a small doctor's group.
Today, the small group of these doctors has become the great medical specialists who are in charge of the health of our military personnel and their family members.
The New Year's Eve was remembered by another remarkable event in the life of the Internal Troops. The Military Hospital of the Internal Troops celebrated the 22nd anniversary on 10 January.

This time, with the diagnosis of acute renal failure, I went to the hospital myself. During the examination, small sized stone was discovered in my left kidney. I was fortunate enough to get back to work shortly after great efforts of the Lieutenant Colonel Rufat Hajiyev, as well as medical staff (little Master Sergeant Bahar Hamidova, Master Sergeant Aliya Aliyeva, Sergeant Sveta Gulueva, Master Sergeant Saadat Aghayeva, Chief Master Sergeant Aida Aliyeva, chief Master Sergeant Elmira Gasimzadeh) in the hospital.
