The scientific and educational center Surb Nerses Mec is the assignee of Research Institute of Proctology after L. Nazarov at RA MH. In 2000 the Institute was privatized by Armenian Charity General Union. In 2001 it was bestowed to Mother See of Holy Etchmiadzin and at 2002 was renamed Surb Nerses Mec SMC. MC Izmirlyan is a multifunctional hospital, which is equipped with advanced, modern medical devices and skillful, experienced and highly qualified specialists. Every year more than 3500 surgical interventions are being performed and nearly 8000 people undergo diagnostic and laboratory research here.
In 2012, the Medical Center was renamed Izmirlyan Medical Center in honor of the great Armenian philanthropist who made a great contribution to the re-equipment of the hospital. The Catholicos of All Armenians expressed his blessing to Mr. and Mrs. Izmirlian for their religious and patriotic spirit, thanks to which, among many other patriotic initiatives, the implementation of the patriotic program of the Izmirlian Medical Center became possible
