In 2008, 74,000 people came to Turkey for healthcare services, and this number increased to 156,000 and 262,000, respectively in 2011 and 2012, from more than 100 nations' citizens.
Turkey received $2.5 billion revenue from foreign patients in 2013, and targets to increase this amount to as much as $20-25 billion from neighboring countries as far as a three-hour-long flight away by 2023.
The Turkish health ministry's hotline service in six languages is expected to help the country accomplish that goal.
Foreign patients can call the Ministry of Health's 184 hotline or the 112 emergency hotline to connect to an international patient unit, where they receive healthcare assistance 24/7 from the relevant personnel who speaks at least one of the aforementioned foreign languages.
