Acıbadem began its journey into healthcare services as a small neighbourhood hospital in a district of Istanbul/Turkey. Today, Acıbadem is a super brand which has taken its rightful place amongst the global healthcare leaders, with its 21 hospitals, 13 outpatient clinics and supporting service companies. Acıbadem’s rapid growth led to the signing of a joint partnership with IHH Healthcare in 2012 which enabled us to be a part of world’s second largest healthcare chain.
Our goal of expanding our foot print overseas has started in 2011 with Acıbadem Sistina Hospital, in Skopje, Macedonia. It is followed by acquisition of Tokuda Group and City Clinic Group in Bulgaria in 2016. Along with this acquisition, Acıbadem Healthcare Group became the largest healthcare service provider in Bulgaria. At the latest, our footprint has extended with the launch of Acıbadem International Medical Center in Amsterdam which has an indoor area of 5.000 square meters, in 2017. Our international investments resulted in the inclusion of 4 hospitals and 5 outpatient clinics.
Apart from hospitals and outpatient clinics, Acıbadem Healthcare Group offers a worldwide model with its integrated special healthcare ecosystem. This ecosystem includes various healthcare support institutions and a University.
Acıbadem University trains healthcare students to be future healthcare professionals by using dynamic and contemporary educational programs with a strong academic teaching team.
