In our first year, the highest number of patients were admitted to the fields of cardiology, cardiovascular, surgical outpatient clinics, plastic surgeons, orthopedics and neurosurgery. Especially in the last 8-10 months, the density of these patients has been applying to gastrointestinal surgery, oncological surgery, general surgery and gastroenterology branches.

Tekirdag Dr. Stating that the interest in İsmail Fehmi Cumalıoğlu City Hospital and its accessibility as a location is a big factor, Onar said that Thrace is actually close to the Balkans by nature, and it has been used before. Edirne‘of University of Trakya Medical Faculty Hospital, Sultan 1st Public HospitalThere were intense applications. On the transit route İstanbulTekirdağ City Hospital has reached a preferable point together with these institutions, as it is an intermediate stop in Istanbul, especially because it is easy to access, close to highways, easy accessibility, and health hotel services are at a high level while providing health services.
‘SUPERIOR SERVICES ATTRACT PATIENTS’
Chief Physician Lütfi Çağatay Onar stated that their hospitals were promoted and great interest was observed in the meetings for health tourism abroad, and said that at least two organizations are held every year in the Balkan countries together with the Thrace Development Agency. IrakNoting that they held a series of meetings with their counterparts in the north of Turkey and Romania, Onar said that the number of patients coming from Romania to our hospital is also quite high. When we present our hospital there, the fact that superior services are offered, especially in the field of health hotel management, as well as the provision of health services, the accessibility of the service, the fact that patient comfort is prioritized, and fast results are among the features that attract patients. In many areas, in fact, every part of our country Turkey increased preference within the scope of the program. We are also making serious efforts to raise our hospital above the standards of our country. I think that especially plastic surgery applications will bring us to the forefront in day-to-day treatment applications. Apart from the Balkan countries, we started to have serious connections with the Turkish republics as well. “We expect our patients from there,” he said.
‘THE FAST RESULT AND THE EFFECT OF CHOOSING A PHYSICIAN’
Onar stated that especially patients coming from abroad can choose a physician in health tourism, and there are more than 60 countries within the scope of health tourism. We accept patients from more than 30 countries.
Especially the expectations of the patients, the ease of access to health services, the fact that they can easily access the treatment without waiting in line, and the short time to give results from the examination also have an impact on their choice of physician. While we were trying to catch up with world standards until recently, many countries of the world are now worried about catching up with the standards in Turkey. The investments made in the last 10 years, the opening of city hospitals and taking the role of the locomotive in service have been factors that have increased the quality of this service and made us reach a sweet competition. First of all, we try to refer physicians who communicate well with patients without any intermediary, without speaking through a translator who is fluent in a foreign language. But apart from that, if they choose another doctor, there is a possibility that they will apply, he said.
