Accredited hospitals in Turkey
On the 29 March 2002, MEMORAL Sisli hospital in Istanbul became the first medical institution in the country to fulfil the strict requirements to a Joint Commission International certification. Since then, more and more hospitals and clinics in Turkey applied for certification. As of Summer 2014, there are 49 JCI accredited medical organisations in Turkey, one of the largest numbers of any country worldwide.

As a result, US-educated doctors with practical experience from well-known hospitals and universities worldwide are currently employed as department heads at hospitals in Turkey.
Did you know?
Due to recent push in private and government investment in healthcare, Turkey now has one of the highest rates of organ transplantation in Europe. In 2012, almost 54 people per million population received an organ transplant. This is attributed to short waiting times and an impressive capacity at local hospitals. In fact, the rate of organ transplantation in Turkey has more than quadrupled over the last decade.
In recent years, private hospitals in Turkey invested heavily in creating the most advanced facilities. Everything from operating rooms to patient rooms has been carefully thought through. Patients in these hospitals enjoy world-class comfort and exceptional care before, during and after their procedures. The quality of these facilities has been reaffirmed by international organizations, such as Joint Commission International and American Hospital Association.
