Karaderili Group of Companies aims to add health to its service list by establishing a fully equipped physical therapy and rehabilitation center in Yalova Terma City Hotel.
Health tourism, which has reached a potential of trillions of dollars in the world, has also made important progress in Turkey. While the success of Turkish doctors is beginning to be recognized worldwide, the health system is on its way to becoming an important export item in Turkey.
According to the statement made by Karaderili Group of Companies, health tourism, which has a potential of 50 billion dollars a year, has started to be at the center of the new generation hotel management. Especially young and middle-aged tourists with economic power prefer to receive services for their health while they want to stay and see new countries.
Known for its investments in thermal tourism, Karaderili Group of Companies aims to add health to its service list by establishing a fully equipped physical therapy and rehabilitation center in Yalova Terma City Hotel. While an area of 1,000 square meters was allocated for the physical therapy and rehabilitation center at the hotel, the Terma City Board of Directors also started negotiations to reach an agreement with corporate companies.
Terma City aims to bring 200 thousand patients from abroad with the project.
According to the information given, Turkey achieves 5 billion dollars worth of health tourism annually. In addition, because of the old and cumbersome healthcare system in European and Middle Eastern countries and the high healthcare costs, the interest of foreign tourists turned to Turkey. Tourists from Germany, France, England, Austria, Iran, and Iraq come to Turkey for health and thermal tourism. Yalova is among the cities most preferred by international patients.
While the project of Karaderili Group of Companies is considered to eliminate the accommodation problems of those who come for health tourism, Terma City Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation Center plans to become a center of attraction for domestic and foreign tourists by combining the power of attractive priced luxury accommodation options and thermal water.
Terma City aims to bring 200 thousand patients from abroad with the new trend project. Terma City, which will serve for 12 months with a bed capacity of 2 thousand 200, will also be able to accept patients from all corners of the country.
“We aim to increase tourism income and the number of tourists”
Tevfik Talas, Senior Manager (CEO) of Karaderili Group of Companies, whose views are given in the statement, stated that they have built and developed a hotel that demonstrates that thermal hotels can also offer luxury holidays and facilities, and added saying, “Thermal hotels are not only designed for recovery, but also for renewal. We call it ‘new generation thermal’.”
Talas stated that Turkey has made reforms in the field of thermal tourism in the last 10 years, and thanks to these regulations, it continues to rise in the world thermal tourism market and “Now, we aim to create a new trend project and join forces with successful brands in the health sector to increase tourism income and the number of tourists. With this project, we aim to bring 350 thousand domestic and foreign patients. We started negotiations with corporate companies to establish a fully equipped physical therapy and rehabilitation center in our hotel.”
