Friday, 12 June 2009

Sema Hospital in Istanbul is shifting focus towards medical tourism in an attempt to increase revenue. Becoming the first hospital in Turkey to receive accreditation by Joint Commission International (JCI) has put Sema in an advantageous position to capitalize on the growing industry. Operating manager Sedat Erten has established a goal of increasing revenues from $30 million in 2008 to $40 million in 2009. By 2010, Sema aims to earn 15 million Euros from European patients alone. In addition to Holland, where Sema has already introduced services, they are targeting Germany, Belgium, Switzerland, Tunisia, Egypt Morocco, Russia and other North African, Middle Eastern and Central Asian countries.
