Bodrum American Hospital

Bodrum American Hospital

Bodrum American Hospital, a private healthcare institution serving under the Vehbi Koç Foundation (VKV) Healthcare Institutions. It is located in Bodrum, Muğla. Expanding for the first time beyond Istanbul, the VKV American Hospital acquired the Private Bodrum Hospital (Özel Bodrum Hastanesi), which was founded in 1997, and set up the Bodrum American Hospital.

Bodrum American Hospital’s opening ceremony was held on 12 July 2019. The hospital serves tourists as well as people who live in Aegean region and international patients.

Vehbi Koç Foundation renovated and rebuilt the infrastructure of the hospital. It has 21 healthcare units, 24 outpatient clinics, 53 beds, 8 intensive care unit beds, 3 operation rooms, a cardiovascular surgery unit, angiography, chemotherapy, and medical oncology treatment units.

During the construction work at the hospital site, some archaeological remains were unearthed from the late Roman period. The Directorate of the Bodrum Underwater Archaeological Museum excavated the artifacts, which date from the 4th century BC to the 5th-6th century AD. The artifacts are now preserved and exhibited in the hospital. This exhibition space earned the Bodrum American Hospital the title of the “museum hospital”, which is the first of its kind.
