Marmara University Pendik Training and Research Hospital Başıbüyük Additional Service Building Opened

Marmara University Pendik Training and Research Hospital Başbüyük Additional Service Building, which President Erdogan ordered to put into service, started accepting patients within the scope of the Kovid-19 pandemic.

The hospital, the foundations of which have been laid years ago by our university and will be put into service this week, has 16 thousand 500 m² of seating area and 113.000 m² of indoor area on a land of 181.754 m². The hospital building has a total of 535 patient beds, including a single patient room that meets the qualified patient room criteria. The hospital includes 62 emergency department short stay unit, 29 surgery rooms, 60 adult intensive care beds with third level ventilators, 9 intensive care isolation rooms and 195 polyclinic rooms.

Strengthened by IPKB, additional service building will provide services with the cooperation between Marmara University and the Ministry of Health. Thanks to 827 seismic isolators, it is capable of continuing operations even during an earthquake and providing complete and uninterrupted health services for up to 72 hours in disasters.

The hospital, which is resistant to disasters and strengthened to provide uninterrupted service even during an earthquake, will also be one of the important addresses in providing quality health services in Istanbul.

The hospital will serve as a specific pandemic center within the scope of the fight against the new type of coronavirus (Kovid-19). It has medical devices and equipment such as ventilator, monitor, 128-section computed tomography for diagnosis and treatment in the fight against the epidemic. Also, a high-capacity COVID-19 testing laboratory is planned to be put into service within a week at the hospital.

For their precious contributions to the opening of Marmara University Pendik Training and Research Hospital Başıbüyük Additional Service Building, which was carried out with the  instructions of our President and with the approval of the Ministry of Health, we would like to thank the Governorship of Istanbul, the Provincial Directorate of Health, the Istanbul Project Coordination Unit (IPCU), which contributed to the strengthening of the building, our administrators, academics and all our staff working in hospital and we wish our hospital to be beneficial to the whole country.
