30 years of experience across every field of specialization

Group Florence Nightingale has been at the forefront of the healthcare industry in the region since 1989. Group Florence Nightingale has developed “Centers of Excellence” with expert treatment, surgery and diagnostic capabilities across the Group’s five hospitals and three medical centers, each center gaining recognition in its specialization not only in Turkey but throughout the region.

A proven record of excellence

Today, Group Florence Nightingale accounts for annual 70.000 inpatients and 250.000 outpatients, a 804 patient bed capacity, 141 ICU Beds and 40 Operating Rooms.

GFNH has established great trust with its multidisciplinary approach and conducts more than 20.000 operations per year, of which 1.000 Pediatric and 2.000 Adult cardiac surgeries. Over its 30 years of excellence, a grand total of 41.000 cardiac surgeries, as well as 105.000 Angiographies & Angioplasties, 20.000 Orthopedic surgeries, 3.217 Spine surgeries, more than 8.000 Oncology cases, nearly 1.500 Liver Transplants, over 1000 Kidney Transplants, 900 Bone Marrow Transplants and over 1.500 Robotic surgeries have been performed.

Internationally recognized and accredited

Group Florence Nightingale was one of the first Turkish hospitals accredited by the Joint Commission International (JCI), the international arm of the organization that reviews and accredits American hospitals. Their checklist includes over 350 criteria, including but not limited to surgical hygiene and anesthesia procedures, as well as evaluation of the systems in place for medical staff and nurses. JCI accreditation audits are conducted every 3 years.

Group Florence Nightingale maintains affiliations and partnerships with some of the most prestigious medical institutions in the United States of America and other countries, and continuously invests in the training and development of all its physicians, nurses, technologists and staff.

Experienced, internationally trained physicians and medical experts

All Group Florence Nightingale physicians are fully licensed by the Turkish Medical Council to practice their specialty in Turkey. In addition, many are Board Certified in their specialty in the US, Australia or Europe. The Group Florence Nightingale credentialing process requires a formal review of each doctor’s qualifications and track record by the Credentials and Bylaws Committee and the Hospital’s Medical Executive Committee. These reviews take place before a doctor is appointed to the medical staff by the Hospital’s Board of Governors, and reviewed every three years thereafter.

A summary of each of our physician’s qualifications is available on our website. If you would like to review the qualifications or specific experience of your physician in more detail when you arrive, we can arrange for you to do so.

Nurses, pharmacists, imaging and lab technicians must undergo schooling and pass certification exams to obtain licenses to practice at Group Florence Nightingale. Nurses are re-certified at 5-year intervals. Those with special responsibilities, notably ICU nurses, must receive special training and be certified as competent in the specific area of expertise.

State-of-the-art technology and equipment

Astonishing advances have been made in the field of medical science and the technology used to offer treatment to patients in every field of specialization, over the past years. Group Florence Nightingale continuously invests in new equipment, training its experts to deliver the highest quality of health care.

Group Florence Nightingale is unique in having its own University and Training Hospital that works hand-in-hand with the Group’s own Clinical Research Center and Centers of Excellence in order to follow and implement the latest developments across the world.

Group Florence Nightingale also opened the first “Smart-and-Green Hospital” in the region, equipped with robotic surgery, tele-medicine and fully trained staff to deliver treatment and surgery in line with the latest modalities.
