Bloom Health cares about the feelings of our patients who receive cancer treatment, we understand their concerns and expectations.
Solutions and success lie in the planning and coordination with a cancer care team, rather than alone. Our partnered institution is distinguished around the world with the latest approach in cancer research and cutting-edge technology, providing a personalized treatment plan for every patient in the most advanced and caring environment.
The comprehensive cancer program consists of specialized physicians, cancer nurses, psycho-oncologists and patient care coordinators who work together to provide the best available care to cancer patients and their families in a caring environment.
In our hospital, each and every cancer patient’s treatment plan is discussed and determined in weekly Tumor Board meetings dedicated to various types of cancer.
The Tumor Boards function as a forum to review and collaboratively discuss each individual cancer case. During these reviews, all caregivers involved in the management of each case share their opinions and make suggestions regarding treatment options. Following the Tumor Board meeting, valid treatment options are presented to the patient and discussed in detail.
From the very first interaction, patient coordinators and nurse navigators assist our patients by calling them before their appointment, accompanying them before and after their examination and planning further steps like test arrangements, consultations, and additional appointments if necessary.
Our family-oriented approach aims to ease any possible difficulties that a family might experience while undergoing treatment in a foreign country. This comprehensive approach expands from coordinating insurance policy issues to providing psychological support to family members.
At any stage of treatment, our patients and their families & caregivers join our survivorship program which provides a variety of services including support groups, educational publications, art facilities and social activities.
The treatment center in Istanbul is the first facility outside the United States that fully replicates the algorithms and standards delivered by caregivers trained in MD Anderson’s Center in Houston. In order to facilitate the environment where all treatments are identical to those in Houston all cases are evaluated with physicians at the main campus.
This process can be summarized as 'one practice model' which allows the patient to receive the identical treatment they would receive at the MD Anderson Center in Houston. All medical technology and quality control metrics are identical with MD Anderson Center in Houston. You can be assured the same quality of care and strict safety regulations.
The most important part of the cancer program in Istanbul is that it is headed by an experienced radiation oncologist, who received his training at MD Anderson in the USA. The staff of medical radiation physicists, radiation oncology technicians and nurses are also clinically trained at MD Anderson – Houston.
The medical institution in Turkey and the US work hand in hand on cancer research, seeking to both understand the nature of cancer and develop new and effective treatments against it.
State-of-the-art technology is integral to top cancer care. The treatment center in Istanbul, equipped with some of the world's most innovative diagnostic and treatment technologies for all types of cancers, remains at the forefront of knowledge in order to provide the most sophisticated, personalized care to every patient.
American healthcare costs are enormous. If you don’t have insurance, the price for cancer treatment can be crippling. Costs are much lower in Turkey, averaging 40-80% less than in the US. Yet, you’re not trading affordability for quality. Specialists, medical institutions, equipment, and procedures are among the most advanced in the world.
Effective cancer treatment often depends on several different types of specialists working together. You’ll find this sort of cooperation in Turkey. For example, if you’re suffering from melanoma, you may have dermatologists, oncologists, immunologists, researchers, and support staff on your treatment team, all working in concert.
