WHO ARE WE?
Acıbadem began its journey into healthcare services as a small neighbourhood hospital in a district of Istanbul/Turkey. Today, Acıbadem is a super brand which has taken its rightful place amongst the global healthcare leaders, with its 22 hospitals, 14 outpatient clinics and supporting service companies. Acıbadem's rapid growth led to the signing of a joint partnership with IHH Healthcare in 2012, which enabled us to be a part of the world's second-largest healthcare chain.
Our goal of expanding our footprint overseas started in 2011 with Acıbadem Sistina Hospital in Skopje, Macedonia. It was followed by the acquisition of Tokuda Group and City Clinic Group in Bulgaria in 2016. Along with this acquisition, Acıbadem Healthcare Group became Bulgaria's largest healthcare service provider. After that, our footprint has extended with the launch of Acıbadem International Medical Center in Amsterdam, which has an indoor area of 5.000 square meters, in 2017. In 2021 it will be followed by the acquisition of Acıbadem Belmedic in Serbia, resulting in 22 hospitals and 14 outpatient clinics in 5 countries.

Cyberknife®: Cyberknife® is a robotic radiosurgery system that can treat with highly sensitive precision, even within a millimetre. With this system, the cancerous region can be treated with high doses of radiation. In this procedure, the healthy tissues can be protected at a maximum level against the side effects of radiation.
Gammaknife®: Gamma Knife® has been the first radiosurgery technique to treat tumours and other abnormalities in the brain. In Gamma Knife® radiosurgery, the target tissue receives a very high dose of radiation in a max of five sessions. In contrast, the adjacent brain tissue is exposed only to negligible radiation.
MRIdian: We have launched the world's 9th and Europe's 3rd MRIdian® Linac system in 2019 that uses the latest breakthrough technology. MRI-based technology spares as much healthy tissue as possible, while powerful tracking tools ensure that only the precise amount of prescribed radiation is delivered. MRIdian® Linac's embedded MRI technology improves tumour visibility and patient alignment, tracks tumours and manages the patient motion and provides on-table adaptive radiotherapy planning. It targets the tumour accurately and is administered without harming the surrounding healthy tissues and cells.
TomoTherapy: TomoTherapy® is a treatment method that evolved from advanced technologies. It performs special, 'customized' radiotherapy on each patient. TomoTherapy® offers an integrated approach to radiation therapy, combining imaging and treatment delivery to precisely target various cancers. Many patients who have reached their maximum tolerated radiation dose can have radiotherapy with TomoTherapy®.
TrueBeam®: TrueBeam® is a system to treat cancer quickly and accurately while avoiding healthy tissues and organs. The most crucial feature of TrueBeam® is that it can provide faster, safer and more effective treatment. The carefully guided, automated workflow on the TrueBeam® system uses precise, high-quality visual cues to enhance safety and reduce the treatment period. Thus radiologists can see small details better.
VitalBeam®: VitalBeam® offers high-intensity mode technology for faster treatments of complex cases. The technology of VitalBeam provides versatility for treatments throughout the body. It enables the doctor to precisely pinpoint the tumour, monitor its position during treatment, and adjust the patient's positioning for greater accuracy. With its high-intensity mode, the VitalBeam® is precise, fast and safe.
