TURKIYE: IsDB President Dr Muhammad Al Jasser has unveiled a memorial plaque at Professor Cemil Tascioglu City Hospital, an IsDB-financed, state-of-the-art hospital in Istanbul, according to an official LinkedIn post.

The hospital is a quake-resistant and environmentally friendly (green) hospital built with EUR157.55 million (US$163.66 million) of financing provided by the IsDB to the Turkish government.

The hospital, which meets its energy needs through its trigeneration system and can stay functional off-grid, was named after Professor Cemil Tascıoglu, a pioneer of healthcare in Turkiye who discovered the first case of COVID-19 in the country and also gave up his life to save patients.
