A new hospital, to be founded jointly by Turkey-based hospital chain Florence Nightingale and Girne American University, is looking to draw a substantial amount of health tourism to the island as the complex will offer a number of specialist medical services.
The Florence Nightingale Hospital will be an environmentally friendly, smart health complex. Construction will cost 160 million euros.
Florence Nightingale Hospitals and GAU signed a protocol of cooperation last week, regarding a group of hospitals offering specialised healthcare.
“The complex will not only serve northern Cyprus, it will also serve regional neighbours and the island will be the centre of heath tourism,” Girne American University chairman, Serhat Akpinar said.
The hospital is planned to have particular facilities, especially for geriatric care, a retirement home for the elderly, an addiction treatment and rehabilitation centre as well as a lifestyle and beauty centre where artistic and cultural events can be hosted.
The sophisticated medical centre will be well equipped and include 12 polyclinics, an emergency room and intensive care units.
The facility will also be the first “green hospital” in North Cyprus.
