What is Health Tourism?
A growing number of people are opting to take advantage of what’s being dubbed as ‘health tourism’ – the process of leaving the country where you live to access medical services abroad.
Why travel abroad for treatment?
One of the major (and obvious) benefits to medical travel is that you can combine your next hospital visit with a much-needed holiday. Many patients like the fact that it gives them the chance to rest and recuperate after an operation, away from the day-to-day stresses of daily life.
Where to go for health treatment
There are a rising number of international hospitals and healthcare centers around the world providing a range of treatments and a high quality of care. Many of these hospitals look to attract international customers to their facilities for service.
Here in Fethiye, we have our own centre for Health Tourism…
Lokman Hekim Esnaf Hospital
Lokman Hekim Esnaf Hospital began as a small Polyclinic in 1997. It was created as a partnership between the Chamber of Artists and Artisans, the Chamber of Drivers and Automobiles and Lokman Hekim Inc. In 2012 they moved to the new premises from where today, the 9000m2 complex provides international service with highly trained and experienced staff combined with advanced medical technology. Besides their highly trained consultants they have around 420 front line nurses, medical staff and administration.
Patients from both Turkey and abroad choose Lokman Hekim Esnaf Hospital for diagnosis and treatment.
Within the hospital there are 50 Consultants offering treatments within 23 areas of medicine.
The hospital has 108 beds, spread over the wards, Observation Room and Coronary, General and Neonatal Intensive Care Units.
All the ward rooms are private and fitted with en suite bathroom, air conditioning, satellite TV, refrigerator, telephone and WIFI.
Put your mind at ease with check-ups…
Check-up programs are important for both your quality of life and life span. With a simple blood test and other studies, the risk of heart disease or other serious illness such as cancer can be diagnosed in the early stages. For this reason it is recommended that you have a check-up every year.
Lokman Hekim Esnaf Hospital offers a range of check-ups from General to VIP.
Early diagnosis can save your life.
What about the language?
One of the things that people are concerned about when undergoing procedures in a hospital abroad is the language barrier.
Foreign Patient Department
The Foreign Patient Department is there to help you with translation and is open 24 hours a day. The department provides a reassuring and professional service and translators are available for English, German, French, Russian and Romanian.
