There are many private hospitals, private services of university hospitals, clinics and doctors working individually.


Medical tourism numbers in

Competing Turkish organisations have never agreed on medical tourism numbers with some wild claims having been widely circulated of over a million, and even of 700,000 in hospitals and clinics.


Medical tourism numbers out

A few hundred or low thousands. Officially there are no outbound medical tourists due to the excellence of care in Turkey, so getting real numbers is impossible.


Medical tourism promotion

The government helps promote medical tourism in a big way. A coordinator for foreign patients was appointed for each city to work in the city’s health directorate.
