The Ministry of Health has started a large-scale investment program encompassing roughly 200 large-city campus hospitals. These hospitals will be constructed in the next decade and funded by public-private partnerships. The Gölcük Public Hospital campus in Kocaeli is part of this program. The goal of the program is to eliminate the numerous and existing small-capacity healthcare facilities stuck in downtown areas with inadequate road access. The campus-style hospital has been adopted as the perfect model to consolidate government healthcare facilities into more efficient and accessible single locations. Located in the Gölcük district of Kocaeli, the 250-bed Gölcük Public Hospital is designed as a seismically isolated, reinforced concrete structure. The project includes site-specific seismic hazard analysis, seismic isolation system design on the upper structure, as well as design and cost analyses.
