Two years of the Medissimo Hospital

The private Medissimo Hospital and Clinic has now entered its third year serving patients.

The private Medissimo Hospital and Clinic has now entered its third year serving patients.

This bold greenfield project to provide comprehensive health care offers a new alternative to the Slovak healthcare system. The Medissimo Hospital, with its state-of-the-art technical equipment, aims to compete with the top clinics in Central Europe. The Department of Radiology – the pride of the hospital – is equipped with fully computerized equipment. Magnetic resonance imaging, computed tomography, and densitometry are available to all clients without waiting times and without restrictions.

The hospital's operating rooms are equipped for the most demanding procedures, and for clients there are well-appointed inpatient rooms providing a high level of comfort not only for patients but also for family members accompanying them.

The Medissimo Hospital is gradually becoming an alternative for people who appreciate quality health care with minimal waiting times, and with all services provided in one place.

"We had to overcome initial presumptions about the hospital only being for wealthy people, through transparent and positive adjusted pricing, as well as by offering the opportunity for clients to undertake a single procedure", said Managing Director Renáta Mihályová.

It is also gratifying that our service is used by more and more expatriates and foreigners living and working not only in Slovakia but also in neighbouring countries.

We offer them quality health care to the standard they are used to at home, quality customer service, the possibility of booking for concrete time, and we cooperate with foreign insurance companies like BUPA, TRICARE, AXA and Aetna.

Outpatient surgery as a priority

In the coming period the main focus of the Medissimo Hospital's management will be to raise its profile as a top outpatient surgery. This kind of surgery (and surgical examination), with the minimum amount of time spent in hospital, is in high demand.

"The Medissimo Hospital, given its professional background, is virtually predestined to provide this form of surgical treatment. The role of my team will be to develop this area continuously and to confirm the position of the Medissimo Hospital as the leader in outpatient surgery", said . Hricišák, M.D., head surgeon of the Department of Outpatient Surgery of Medissimo Hospital.

We have recently begun to perform unique laparoscopic surgery using microsurgical instruments introduced through a single incision, a technique known as SILS, in gall-bladder operations, for appendicitis, for hernia operations, in gynaecological surgery, for biopsies and in reviews of the abdominal cavity. More than six months ago we began performing implantations of pacemakers.

Another pillar for the future is the development of our Diagnostic and Therapeutic Centre, which for clients means a comprehensive assessment of their health status and medical treatment requirements can be performed during a short-term hospital stay.
In recognition of the quality of our work we have been awarded an NIAHO (National Integrated Accreditation for Healthcare Organizations) certificate.

Our priority is to provide affordable, quality health care in one location, at a time when our clients really need it, in order to help them return as quickly as possible to their work, family, hobbies, and a normal life.
