Set to be one of the largest hospitals of the world, the project has already brought Turkey an important award.
The project has been recognized as the “PPP Deal of the Year” in Europe at the Project Finance International (PFI) Awards organized by Thomson Reuters, one of the most prestigious business media and information firms. The awards of the event, which is held every year by Thomson Reuters to choose the best projects of the world, will be presented at a special ceremony in London on February 7, 2018.
THE MOST EARTQUAKE-RESISTANT PROJECT
Once completed, İkitelli City Hospital, financial closure ceremony of which was held in June with President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan in attendance, will be one of the world’s largest hospitals. The hospital project will be implemented in partnership with Sojitz, one of the largest investment and trade companies of the world. The facility is designed to cover a construction area over 1 million sqm and to serve 23,600 patients per day with a projected bed capacity of 2,700. İkitelli City Hospital will be rigged with more than 2,000 seismic isolators to become world’s largest seismically isolated building. Thus, operational activities will not cease even during and after an earthquake. Due for opening in 2020, the İkitelli City Hospital Project will generate around 6,000 jobs during construction and approximately 10,000 once brought into service.
