President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan inaugurated the Sancaktepe Prof.Dr.Feriha Oz, Yesilkoy Prof. Dr. Murat Dilmener, and Hadımköy Dr.İsmail Niyazi Kurtulmuş emergency hospitals in Istanbul.
All three hospitals had been built/renovated within the past 45 days in order to respond to emergencies like the Covid-19 pandemic.
In his speech, President Erdoğan expressed his hope that these hospitals would provide fruitful contributions to Istanbul and Turkey, and added, "Thank Allah, we have prevented the spread of the pandemic even without the need for the additional capacity we have created here."
Turkey became a focus of interest during the pandemic due to its strong healthcare infrastructure and health insurance system. In addition to serving any immediate needs, the hospitals will contribute to the country's health tourism sector once the pandemic is over.
