Healthcare in Turkey

Spending your holiday, or even live permanently, medical care is at the top of the list of concerns for many foreigners or property buyers in Turkey. There is, however, no reason to worry, since Turkey offers high quality of healthcare services.  

There are many private hospitals with excellent facilities in Turkey, but also every city / village has a public hospital.

In the last decade Private Healthcare has flourished in Turkey. The hospitals are on a par with international standards in terms of expertise and equipment, as also contracts with various insurance companies so it is important to provide a good health insurance.

However, the Turkish State hospitals may not always have the same conditions as in your homecountry. Despite this fact, these hospitals however, have some of the most well-known and respected doctors in Turkey on staff, especially at the university hospitals. Since a few years, plans to improve the standards in state hospitals are being planned and implemented, consequently making a big difference in the service they provide today.

Most of the medical doctors working in both private/public hospitals in Turkey are reputable and able to speak in English.

Health / Travel Insurance

Visitors and longer-term residents are advised to take out medical insurance, despite the low cost of high-quality private medical care in Turkey.
