Izmir University of Economics Hospital


It is aimed open the Health Practice Research Centre, which will provide compatible undergraduate and graduate education in the field of health sciences. For this purpose, construction of the centre located 600 meters from the main campus of our university, has begun and is expected to be completed in a short period of time, and the clinical training of the students of the Faculty of Medicine will take place in this environment. In Health Practice Research Centre of our university it is planned to provide a healthcare service in which patients are evaluated with an integrated approach, continuity of care is ensured, risk management is envisaged, and every step of the healthcare is monitored and measured.

The Health Practice Research Center is designed as four connected blocks, in which training and research areas are integrated with health services. There are 3 conference rooms, 9 classrooms, 5 small group study rooms, ~ 1000m2 space is reserved for education and ~ 600m2 for research laboratories, and training areas within the bedside treatment units have been established.
The health center has a closed area of 28600m2 with a bed capacity of more than 200 and is aimed to include intensive care units, operating theaters, a delivery room (for delivery, afterbirth care and follow-up), and centers for assisted reproduction, radiation oncology, nuclear medicine, interventional radiology, physical therapy and rehabilitation as well as medical aesthetic. The Faculty of Medicine adopts practices that are patient-focused and emphasize patient safety. For this reason, the “Lean Approach Principle” is adopted for the design and construction of the Health Practice Research Center. Every step of the health service is evaluated from the viewpoint of the patient and the health service is facilitated by eliminating the useless processes leading to the loss of time and it has been standardized in terms of quality. Provision of the required standards for national and international hospital accreditation has been adopted as minimum standards in the planning of hospital operation. In addition, EMRAM (Electronic Medical Health Record Adaptation Model) level 7 information technology will be used and will be accredited by HIMMS (Health Information and Management Systems Society) in order to achieve goals regarding to patient focused health care, patient safety, health care maintenance and risk management.
