The Turkish Republic Ministry of Health oversees more than 1,000 public hospitals throughout the country and is continuously improving its quality of health care and patient’s safety. Recently, the Turkish government launched 20 Billion USD investments for 34 Integrated Health Campuses throughout Turkey. The country also houses more than 570 private hospitals, and in fact, has the highest accredited JCI organizations in the world—totalling 47 private hospitals. Many have been re-accredited for the second and for the third time (dating back to 2002). That number is expected to grow in the near future.

Besides the mentioned benefits and advantages, worth stating is the county’s continuous pursuit towards providing the best health care services. The Ministry has teamed up with JCI to transform Turkey’s health care system by developing its own set of standards to measure hospital quality.

To that end, JCI helped the Ministry develop a road map highlighting the key areas of focus: hospital design, medication management, infection control, medical transport, patient safety and quality improvement, care continuum (related to home care), and primary care.
