About us; We continue to grow with Bahat Health Group, Sultangazi Bahat Hospital, İkitelli Batı Bahat Hospital, G.O.P. Hospital, BHT clinic Private Istanbul Tema Hospital, which is the newest and largest ring of the group, on the road started with a small 300 square meter neighborhood clinic, which was the first link of our chain in 1994.

We have the mission of "Becoming a World Brand in Health" by applying patient and employee safety in international quality standards based on ethical principles with its medical infrastructure. We continue our activities with an active capacity of 100 doctors and more than 1,000 employees.

JCI (Joint Commission International) Accreditation, which it applied for in its first year, has complied with the 7th edition standards and is the first general hospital in Turkey to be entitled to receive the Quality Certificate in its first audit.

In this way, which is started with the philosophy of "Health is Now More Valuable", we maintain health care services by always prioritizing the value given to nature, employee and patient without compromising the understanding of quality service.

Our hospital, which has an indoor area of 55,000 square meters and where we continue to put every floor of our 19-storey building into service day by day, has been built with smart building technology and has been awarded the LEED Gold certificate. In order to gain this award, we have acted pursuant to the principle of protecting the environment and nature since the beginning of the project.

We have 18 fully equipped operating rooms, 2 of which are Hybrid Operating Rooms, where advanced medical imaging systems and medical devices can be used at the same time, serving with 450 bed capacity.
