“After the earthquake, Defne State Hospital with 300 beds started to provide health services in Hatay. The 400-bed Training and Research Hospital will also start providing health services in a very short time. Our Iskenderun Emergency Hospital with 200 beds in Iskenderun is currently under construction, and it is the shortest. With nearly 850 health personnel and 7 operating theaters, a fully-equipped imaging center suitable for modern medicine, it will soon begin to provide health services.”
Patient referrals out of the province decreased

It provides service with an average of more than 2,000 polyclinics per day. After the 400-bed Training and Research Hospital was opened. We think that our shipments outside the province will decrease significantly now,” he said.
