experience, has the capability to develop an understanding which determines the line of
behavior. Every society has a health concept which reflects its history, cultural values,
economic and which determines the health service systems.

The hospital designes have shown a constant change due to the transition to settled life,
the developments in science, technology and architecture, the transformation pressure of
other economic and social areas and the developing health and illness concept. The
architectures have constantly renewed their designs as a result of the suggestions of the
doctors who constantly spent their times in the hospital buildings, the discovery of the
micro organisms and the researches regarding the effects of the hospital environment on
the patients.

The studies on determination of the criterion for the ideal hospital area and development
of the methodology for selection of the area have initiated . It is understood that the
hospitals affect the recevery with the attitudes of their workers, business processes,
architectural designs and environmental factors.
