The Numbers Are In

In the past, we’ve touched on the Czech Republic’s burgeoning status as a prime medical tourism destination and cited several likely reasons for its evident popularity. Now, with reports in on the number of foreigners who came into the country last year for medical treatment, it would seem the Czech medical tourism industry is only continuing its upward trajectory.

According to a recent article in the online newspaper Pražský deník, nearly 20,000 foreigners travelled to the Czech Republic in 2018 for purposes of medical tourism. This is almost a 50% increase over the previous year and the fifth-highest number in Europe for the year. The article also states that the number of Czechs who travel abroad for medical care each year is a comparatively small one—only about 3,000 out of a population of over 10.5 million people.

This means an escalating and significant number of medical tourists are choosing the Czech Republic as the country to meet their needs. It also suggests the native population is so satisfied with the care they receive as to scarcely seek it beyond their own borders. Both are strong indicators of quality and value.

So if you’re deliberating over which country to choose for your treatment, give some thought to coming our way—the Czech way. And if you do, Medical Travel is here to help. After all, we’ve been connecting foreign patients with affordable, high-quality care longer than anyone else in the country. Let us do the same for you.

Blog of the Month: ‘Medical Tourism: Miracle or Danger?’

Following the reported deaths of several medical tourists in the Dominican Republic, medical tourism has recently come under criticism, with some warning against the ‘perils’ of travelling abroad for treatment. And it is wise to be wary when heading to a foreign land for something as serious as medical care. But let’s not throw out the baby with the bathwater. Remember, not all destinations are equal, and, as in anything else, a balanced view is necessary. Some thoughts on the matter.

Voices of Medical Travel: Testimonial of the Month

‘Hana, Klara, Mr Hanuška and the rest of the wonderful staff at Medical Travel were there at every step. The balloon was easy and painless to be put in, and my experience was that it only gave me a tummy ache for three or four days. I would highly recommend these guys as they are professional, have excellent customer service skills in all areas and do a fantastic job. I felt supported my whole way through and just really didn’t expect such a great experience.’
