BAKU, Azerbaijan, Aug. 20
On Wednesday, August 5th, the Konya Karatay Integrated Health Campus, located in Konya, Turkey, began admitting patients into its emergency units and polyclinics for the first time.
The hospital is a result of public-private cooperation initiated and overseen by the Turkish Ministry of Health. ICIEC worked in partnership with Siemens Bank AG to secure loans for the hospital construction.
The hospital is opening in two stages. The first stage is operational and started to provide services to patients, having a capacity of over 800 beds. The second stage is set to open by the end of this year, raising the capacity to over 1200 beds.
ICIEC CEO Oussama KAISSI is pleased to witness the opening of the first stage, stating, “the opening of the Konya Karatay Integrated Health Campus provides urgently needed access to healthcare for the people of Konya, Turkey. It’s heartening to see progress being continued to develop essential healthcare infrastructure, especially throughout the challenges presented by the ongoing pandemic.”
The hospital will provide relief to city of Konya as it manages the COVID-19 pandemic, restricting services to non-COVID-19 patients, easing the burden of pandemic focused hospitals in the city. This project and the partnerships involved ensure that the citizens of Konya will continue to receive world-class medical care and facilities.
