The medical center MEDICA was founded in May 2001 in a historic building in the settlement Teşvikiye in Istanbul. It took eight months of preparations to fit out the building with such modern diagnostic devices.
The first diagnostic devices in our center were 1.5 Tesla MR, Open MR, Spiral CT, Scintigraphy, Mammography and X-Ray, and Color Doppler Ultrasonography and Bone densitometry (DEXA).
In 2002 the PET device was added as a part of our center too. At that time the Digital System CR was used. After two years the Spiral CT was replaced by 16 Slice CT, while Mammography and X-Ray were replaced by fully digital system. In 2006 it was replaced by the PET CT. In the next three years the 16 Slice CT was replaced by a 64 Slice CT, which in 2011 was replaced by the 256 Slice CT. In the same period our center acquired a 3 Tesla MR device that replaced the previous 1.5 Tesle MR.
Within our center work 6 radiologists, 1 nuclear medicine specialist and 5 radiology technicians. Biochemical and microbiological services are performed through a cooperation agreement with a highly developed laboratory.
Within the MEDICA diagnostic center in the 4 internal and neighboring centers are employed 35 doctors.
Through its mission to integrate all the innovations in the field of medicine, MEDICA is today's leading institution in its segment.
Apart its leadership in the medical field, one of the most important features of MEDICA is participating in fulfillment of life through the merger of art and medicine.
The weekly concerts represent a part of the company tradition, taking into consideration that MEDICA is a supporter of arts and artists. Since its founding MEDICA hosted more than 100 concerts and also opened its doors to the visual arts. With great pride we are delighted to announce that MEDICA also hosted dozens of art exhibitions and has a very important and prominent art collection.
With the same emotions, thoughts and goals, and thanks to my colleagues and the support of my family, in the country where I feel like home- Macedonia, I founded MEDICA ISTANBUL which will have the status of a boutique hospital where a wide variety of diagnostic methods and medical treatments will be conducted aiming to offer One Day Surgery.
Through the hospital established in Tetovo our goal is to offer medical services at the highest and most professional level to all citizens from the region and from neighboring countries. I greet you warmly and thank you.
