In 2005, the Turkish Healthcare Travel Council (THTC) was established to strengthen health tourism activities and to unite the national efforts to bring more patients to Turkey from around the world. With 375 members, consisting of general hospitals, private clinics, thermal and medical SPA centers, hotels, travel agencies, SPA and wellness centers, facilitators and assistant companies, and with 168 network offices in 92 different countries, the council has grown into the largest healthcare association both in Turkey and the world.
