Waqf Hospital is a hospital that provides free treatment while providing other needs to the community. It was created to provide facilities for the community especially for the less fortunate and the poor. Its existence in the Islamic world has a positive impact primarily on the welfare of the people from the government. Among the first waqf hospitals built in Istanbul, the administrative center of the 'Uthmaniyyah is the Fatih Hospital. This article discusses the waqf funds for Fatih Hospital which started its operations in the 15th century. This study was conducted using qualitative method in the form of historical study while the data collection method uses document analysis method. The result of this study found Fatih Hospital receiving waqf funds from Sultan Mehmet II wakaf institution. Through this wakaf fund, various hospital activities can be systematically carried out including the daily wage payment of doctors, nurses and staff at Fatih Hospital. However, the hospital has stopped its operation in the mid-19th century due to certain factors, such as an earthquake that destroyed most of the hospital buildings. Additionally, the change in waqf management system in Istanbul is also one of the factors that the hospital is no longer providing its services to the community.
