In the year when the 140th anniversary of the existence and work of the Military Hospital in Nis and 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War is marked, and in the glory of the ancestors, founders of the Serbian medicine and all those who gave their lives for the liberty of the Homeland, members of the Military Hospital of Nis celebrated their patron Saint-day.

In the complex of the Military Hospital, there is a chapel of Holy Unmercenary Healers Cosmas and Damian, built in 1918 near Cele-Kula monument. The chapel was built in order to meet spiritual needs of patients and the staff of the Military Hospital, but in the course of the time it lost its function for which it had been originally built.  Fortunately, it preserved its architectural appearance, regardless of a facility built up at the west side, and it fully fulfills its liturgical purpose. An important moment that gives the building a special significance is the proximity of the large and unique in the world historical monument of Cele-Kule, a symbol of national suffering and the patriotism of the liberators of Serbia.
