Best Hospitals in Greece

Amongst the OECD member countries, Greece has the largest doctors to population ratio, thanks to the sufficient number of hospitals and doctors in Greece available to treat the patients. The hospitals of Greece are equipped with high-tech instruments for accurate and precise diagnosis and treatment. The cities which attract most of the medical tourists visiting Greece are Athens, Peloponnese, Alexandroupolis, Crete, Kalamata, Thessaloniki and Corfu. Greece has upgraded his ranks amongst the top countries in medical tourism due to excellent hospitality, world-class healthcare through innovative techniques, Premium physicians and surgeons, low cost as compared to other European countries and outstanding tourist attractions. The climate of Greece also helps in accelerating the recovery in case of surgery.

Cost Comparison

The cost of healthcare and treatment in Greece is significantly lower as compared to other countries. For instance, the IVF treatment in Greece costs approximately 3500 Euro while in UK and Italy it is 5800 Euro and 6000 Euro, respectively. It is the reason that Greece has seen an increased number of patients visiting from other countries. The healthcare in Greece is sound and robust and the Government is investing a huge amount of money to raise the standard of healthcare facilities. The cost of treatment in Greece depends upon a variety of factors. The cost of living in various cities of Greece significantly differs and the treatment cost varies accordingly. Further, the experience of the doctors and surgeons as well as the success history of the hospital in conducting that particular treatment also have an impact on the overall cost. Also, if the patients require rehabilitation services after surgeries such as orthopaedic or cardiovascular surgery, the cost will escalate. An underlying medical condition of the patient increases his stay at the hospital and the follow-up visit charges also add up in the total cost. Hospitals may charge a premium on their exclusive services such as surgery or treatment of a rare disease, which is difficult to find at any other hospitals in Greece. So the disease for which treatment is sought also have an impact on the cost of treatment.
