Our Hospital/Our History

History of Our Old Service Building: The first hospital in Kırklareli was built by the Governor Mustafa Neşe Pasha in 1894 as the "Gureba Hospital" in the garden of our current hospital and transferred to the Municipality. This hospital was small in building and inadequate in health care. In 1914, the founder of the Child Protection Agency from Kırklareli, Dr. Fuat UMAY and the foundation of a new hospital was laid under the management of a committee consisting of Engineer Faik and Mayor Muhittin Bey. The construction was completed by the Municipality in 1918 and transferred to the private administration. After 1922, it was converted into a 50-bed treatment institution. Until the 1950s, a chief physician, an operator, a head nurse, a nurse and two dressing men were serving. In 1950, the hospital was transferred from the Private Administration to the Ministry of Health. In 1955, a Tuberculosis Pavilion for 15-20 people and a Gynecology Unit were built in addition to the hospital in 1955 by the Tuberculosis Control Association. The modern hospital building with 250 beds was put into operation in 1973. Tuberculosis Pavilion and old buildings were demolished.
