The research analysis output is one of the leading indicators to assess the quality of clinical care, education, and research in healthcare organizations. This study aims to evaluate the scholarly publication growth of the Saudi Arabian Ministry of National Guard – Health Affairs (MNG-HA), indexed in the Elsevier’s Scopus database since 2002.

The study was performed using different bibliometric and visualization techniques. While the highest number of publications indicate King Saud bin Abdulaziz University for Health Sciences as an affiliated address, however, the publications from King Abdulaziz Medical City have the maximum citation impact. The ‘Saudi Medical Journal’ has been the most preferred journal at national level, while ‘Studies in Health Technology and Informatics’ from the Netherlands at the international level. Our results show that most collaborations are among the authors of the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom at the international level. The growing numbers of publications, sound citation-impact, and international collaboration reflect the practical approach of MNG-HA management’s leadership, and aspiring contribution of MNG-HA researchers.
