In the area where Çanakkale Hilâl-i Ahmer Ağadere Ağır Mecrûhin Hospital operates, we open the doors of Kızılay Ağadere Museum to our nation.
Ağadere Mecruhin Hospital is one of the most important places where health services were provided to the Turkish army behind the front of the Gallipoli Battles. The name of the region is referred to as “Ağadere” in some sources and as “Ağdere” in others. In the Gallipoli Peninsula, which witnessed all the violence of the Gallipoli Battles in 1915, the gathering and dispatch of the wounded from the south and north was carried out from the Ağadere Region. This deep valley hosted the division hospitals, Hilal-i Ahmer Hospital and dressing centers, and Hilal-i Ahmer teahouses.
The 4th Division Mobile Hospital, The 9th Division Mobile Hospital, and the 3rd Corps's 1st Mobile Hospital were all located in the Ağadere Region. After the bombing of Maydos by the enemy forces, its hospital was moved to the Ağadere Region.
Ağadere, which houses four large hospitals, struggled to heal thousands of soldiers from the front. From 25 June, 2015, to the end of November, a total of 150,868 soldiers, including 99,275 injured, 33,794 sick, and 17,799 on sick leave, were dispatched from Ağadere and Akbaş hospitals.
