Our History

The 70’s are remembered as a time period during which Turkish citizens used to travel abroad for sophisticated treatments like open heart surgeries and cancer treatments.

With a group of his doctor friends who shared the same vision and determination, Prof. Cem’i Demiroğlu has founded Haseki Cardiology Institute at Cerrahpaşa Medical Faculty in 1974. Over the years, this institute provided important services to Turkey and shaped the beginning of a successful journey.

Florence Nightingale Hospital

Florence Nightingale Hospital was established in 1989 as a small and ambitious healthcare institution with 50 beds and an annual capacity of 250 open heart surgeries. By courtesy of the ever increasing support, confidence and successful work, Florence Nightingale expanded its facilities conforming to international standards and measures to 302 beds, in which more than 2000 open heart surgeries could annually be performed.

Avrupa Florence Nightingale Hospital, the second hospital of Group Florence Nightingale, became one of the major healthcare institutions of Turkey, actively serving across all medical branches including pediatrics, dental and maxillofacial surgery, gynecology and ophthalmology.

Gayrettepe Florence Nightingale Hospital and its Comprehensive Cancer Center were opened in 1997 by a joint venture with American partners. The infrastructure also allows for the ever so important joint boards and conferences with international counterparts via telemedicine.

In line with successful results and experience gained over the passing years, Florence Nightingale established a university in 1998 which was named as Istanbul Bilim University in 2006. It is the first thematic healthcare university in Turkey. It currently enrolls over 3000 students.

Group Florence Nightingale Hospitals has grown in recent years and become one of the leading healthcare groups both in Turkey and the region. While doing so, we are moving forwards by placing patient experience at the core of all our services without compromising on quality, ethics or science.

We are proud that patients have placed great trust in Turkish doctors and hospitals, and consequently today, favor healthcare institutions in Turkey over treatment abroad. We intend to share our experiences and know-how on a national and international scale through partnerships and cooperations.

The support received from you – our treasured patients – along our 30-years journey is what gives us confidence and motivation to continue looking after you with utmost care.

Today Group Florence Nightingale has five hospitals and two medical centers. The bed capacity has increased to 800 which are equipped with the state-of-the-art technology. Hence Group Florence Nightingale has been nominated as one of the global destinations in healthcare.
