The official opening of the Bishkek State Hospital of Kyrgyz-Turkish Friendship took place in the capital of Kyrgyzstan.

Speaking at the opening ceremony Minister of Health and Social Development of the Kyrgyz Republic Alymkadyr Beishenaliev said that the Kyrgyz-Turkish hospital will be of a high level. “The hospital will carry out high-tech operations and treatment, which reduces the number of our citizens leaving for treatment abroad,” he said.

In addition, the minster clarified that within the framework of the agreement, 30 doctors (21 men and 9 women) of the highest level from Turkey were sent to Kyrgyzstan. “It is also planned arrival of another 30 doctors from Turkey,” Beishenaliev added.

It should be noted that 72 beds (including 21 beds in the intensive care unit) have been deployed in the Bishkek State Hospital of the Kyrgyz-Turkish Friendship to provide medical services to citizens of the Kyrgyz Republic, as well as to citizens of other countries and stateless persons who have applied for medical care.

The hospital in Bishkek was built thanks to the Turkish Cooperation and Coordination Agency (TIKA) and the Turkish Ministry of Health.
