As part of a Health Transformation Program launched in 2003, the number of health facilities in Turkey has increased along with many policies aimed at providing better quality and accessible services, APA reports citing Anadolu Agency. 

During the COVID-19 outbreak, health investments were further accelerated, and new hospitals were opened in many provinces and districts last year.

In 2020, a total of 17 giant hospitals were built in nine provinces, to provide health services without interruption.

In this process, all medical facilities, especially the city hospitals, which stand out with their intensive care and bed capacities, played an active role in the successful struggle against COVID-19.

Also last year, the Lefkosa Emergency Hospital with 100 beds and six operating rooms, built by the Health Ministry in the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus (TRNC), was put into service during the fight against the pandemic.
