Within its future-oriented structure, it serves patients from all over the world. The hospital’s state-of-art infrastructure experienced medical and support staff and unmatched technology are at international standards only seen at its western counterparts.
The NEU Hospital was planned as a patient-centered institution. The international standards according to the Joint Comission International (JCI) have been adopted in advance to become a world-class center to realize medical and other services for the patients.
It has a 55,000 square-meter closed area with 209 private, single patient rooms, 8 operating theatres, 30-bed Intensive Care Unit, 17-bed Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, a laboratory where a wide array of tests can be carried out, and a cutting-edge diognostic imaging center.

SOCIAL LIFE AND STUDENT CLUBS
One of the most important elements of university life for newcomers and active students is the social life which students should be able to develop on their own. It has been stated by many researchers that interacting with others boost feelings of well-being and reduces feelings of stress which may be caused by academic work load and trying to adapt to a new environment. Therefore, socializing in different environments helps students to build connections that can be useful in the long run and to move beyond the classroom environment.
A perspective focused only on academic development is an obstacle to obtain an opportunity to communicate and socialize with others from culturally diverse backgrounds, which is one of the most important achievements of the university. Our university is aware of this fact and for this reason we are providing social activities for student’s personal and cultural development by supporting their interests.
