Abstract

During the Ottoman Empire and Early Republic Eras, the hospitals that had the quality to meet the needs started to be constructed with a new understanding. The wars that took place within this era and epidemics affected the location and formations of the hospitals. However, the reasons such as financial difficulties and inadequate (even absence of) staff made it hard to construct the hospitals with respect to the features of this era. Contrary to these inadequacies, the hospitals struggled to exist in such a way to contribute a national unity endeavor. This condition has contributed to the collaboration and unification of hospital culture with a multicultural perspective. The study has enquired the first civilian hospital in the geography of Turkey along with their social and healing effects and reflections over contemporary hospitals today. In the historical process, the sensitivities of hospitals and focus on spatial formations have been evaluated with respect to modern hospitals, particularly the ones in Ankara, reflections.
