American Hospital was founded in 1920 under the leadership of Admiral Mark L. Bristol as the first non-profit private hospital of Turkey. School of Nursing was founded simultaneously with the hospital and has become an inseparable part of the institution ever since. First managed by the New York-based American Hospital of Istanbul Inc., and then transferred to the Vehbi Koç Foundation in 1995, which had been supporting the hospital since the foundation’s establishment. The Vehbi Koç Foundation invested more than 300 million USD in renovation and development efforts, supporting the American Hospital to achieve its leading position in the Turkish health sector.
Today, American Hospital has become the leading institution in the healthcare sector with its innovative and dynamic approach. It provides healthcare services with 200 patient rooms, 62 intensive care beds and 12 operating rooms. Each year, the hospital admits approximately 20 thousand inpatients, provides services to more than 120 thousand outpatients and performs more than 10 thousand surgeries.
