About Karadeniz Technical University Farabi Hospital


With the protocol signed between the Ministry of Health and Social Aid and the Rectorate of Karadeniz Technical University in 1980, the 225-bed building in Trabzon Soğuksu-Çamlık was allocated to the KTU Faculty of Medicine for 10 years. In 1986, the company moved to its new and modern buildings with a 600-bed capacity, which was named Farabi Hospital.

After this date, Farabi Hospital, which showed a rapid development in terms of physical and academic facilities with its academic and administrative staff, was completed in 2004 and the construction of an additional hospital building with a capacity of 308 beds (B block) was started in 1993 and construction of a closed area of 25.000 m2 on the campus in 1993 was completed. The renovation works initiated in block A were completed and as of September 2005, the service continues with a total capacity of 749 patients in both main blocks.
