Turkey’s growing economy and the growing investment potential have attracted significantly more interest from the local and international investors in the recent years. The investments and the increase of mergers and acquisitions in the health sector have contributed significantly to the progress in the sector. However, the introduction of new regulations for investment incentives also plays an important role in the rise of the health sector.
Regarding the health sector, the identified priority investment issues are:
– Investments in the production of biotechnological drugs,
– Investments in the production of oncological drugs,
– Investments in the production of blood products.
**A minimum investment of 20 million TRY is required in these areas.
In the health sector, hospital size, location, corporate brand value, patient density and number determine the value of the hospital. The private hospitals provide services to both the patients coming through social security institutions and the private patients through their agreements with the state; the patients from abroad are also provided services in certain areas. (such as eye diseases, oncology, hair transplantation etc.)
Health tourism and infrastructure is very advanced in Turkey.
