Medline HealthBox


Medline has a brand new product called HealthBox. In this new service package, Medline gives you a 1-year membership for emergency health services. This package also includes a discount card, which is valid for more than 800 health institutions all over Turkey.

Emergency Health Services:
7/24 Emergency Doctor and Land Ambulance Service

We have specially trained crews consisting of a doctor, an anesthesia technician, and a driver stationed in various parts of Istanbul, Ankara, İzmir and Bursa.

The emergency calls are answered by the doctors at the Medline Alarm Center. The doctor gathers the necessary information about the patient's clinical status and provides information about what needs to be done. Once the situation has been evaluated, the decision whether on-site intervention or transport to a hospital will be carried out. Once the decisions have been made, all necessary interventions are carried out for any kind of health problem, from non-life threatening situations to resuscitation and intensive care.

7/24 Medline Medical Counseling Hotline
You can reach a doctor by calling the Medline Emergency Health Services Hotline at 444 12 12. Medical Counseling Service does not recommend medicine or arrange prescriptions, but gives detailed information about the situation of the patient.

Your home and office address will be recorded as your coordinates in our digital map and the system. When you call 444 12 12 from one of the telephone numbers that you specify on your membership form, the system automatically recognizes you, shows your address, and displays your medical information on our Alarm Center doctor's computer screen. This process keeps us from losing valuable time in emergency situations by not having to ask you for address information and the ability to retrieve your medical history immediately. This system allows us a better time management and so to provide more effective health care service.

Assistance Services:

- ­Concierge Services:
Theatre, Concert, Hotel, Restaurant, Transport (Train, Airplane, Bus tickets), Rent a Car, Sport Activities, Translation, Cultural Activities, Guidance Service Reservations.

Medline, which was found in 1995, is Turkey's first private emergency health service company. Medline started its mission with the aim of providing best service by right hands in emergency situations so as to end wrong practices which even leads to death in some situations. Medline provides pre-hospital emergency health care services for "A class" hospitals as well as corporate customers (insurance companies, banks, different sized managements etc.) and individual customers (with different service packages).

Medline Emergency Health Services has been a well-known brand by integrating its superior quality with the technological infrastructure and by attaining to high level of customer satisfaction. Moreover, Medline is the second emergency health services organization in the world and the first in Turkey, which is accredited by Joint Commission International (JCI) and is proud of elevating the emergency health services standards in Turkey.

What Happens When You Call The Alarm Center in an Emergency Situation?
1) When you call 444 12 12 the doctor gathers information about the patient's clinical status and makes the decision regarding the patient's treatment, whether an ambulance or a doctor is needed.

2) While the ambulance and its crew are on route to the patient's location, the doctor at the Alarm Center will provide the patient or person calling on behalf of the patient with First Aid information, thereby eliminating risk of death or permanent disability due to improper intervention.

3) Once the ambulance and its crew has reached the patient and performed its medical intervention, if home treatment of the patient is impossible, the patient will be transported to the hospital of his or her choice.

4) The Alarm Center doctor will take care of any organizational details regarding the hospital.

5) During the patient's transport to the hospital, the patient's immediate family member or friend, or if he or she has a personal doctor, will be informed about the person's clinical situation.
