Internationally recognized and accredited
Group Florence Nightingale was one of the first Turkish hospitals accredited by the Joint Commission International (JCI), the international arm of the organization that reviews and accredits American hospitals. Their checklist includes over 350 criteria, including but not limited to surgical hygiene and anesthesia procedures, as well as evaluation of the systems in place for medical staff and nurses. JCI accreditation audits are conducted every 3 years.
Group Florence Nightingale maintains affiliations and partnerships with some of the most prestigious medical institutions in the United States of America and other countries, and continuously invests in the training and development of all its physicians, nurses, technologists and staff.
Experienced, internationally trained physicians and medical experts
All Group Florence Nightingale physicians are fully licensed by the Turkish Medical Council to practice their specialty in Turkey. In addition, many are Board Certified in their specialty in the US, Australia or Europe. The Group Florence Nightingale credentialing process requires a formal review of each doctor’s qualifications and track record by the Credentials and Bylaws Committee and the Hospital’s Medical Executive Committee. These reviews take place before a doctor is appointed to the medical staff by the Hospital’s Board of Governors, and reviewed every three years thereafter.
A summary of each of our physician’s qualifications is available on our website. If you would like to review the qualifications or specific experience of your physician in more detail when you arrive, we can arrange for you to do so.
Nurses, pharmacists, imaging and lab technicians must undergo schooling and pass certification exams to obtain licenses to practice at Group Florence Nightingale. Nurses are re-certified at 5-year intervals. Those with special responsibilities, notably ICU nurses, must receive special training and be certified as competent in the specific area of expertise.
State-of-the-art technology and equipment
Astonishing advances have been made in the field of medical science and the technology used to offer treatment to patients in every field of specialization, over the past years. Group Florence Nightingale continuously invests in new equipment, training its experts to deliver the highest quality of health care.
Group Florence Nightingale is unique in having its own University and Training Hospital that works hand-in-hand with the Group’s own Clinical Research Center and Centers of Excellence in order to follow and implement the latest developments across the world.
Group Florence Nightingale also opened the first “Smart-and-Green Hospital” in the region, equipped with robotic surgery, tele-medicine and fully trained staff to deliver treatment and surgery in line with the latest modalities.
