Taking into account the attractiveness of Croatia as a travel destination and its top medical staff, the conclusion is inevitable - Croatia will surely be one of the leading destinations for medical tourism in the future.The representatives of an American firm for health care consulting, Strongside Solutions, during their work visit to Croatia, have visited the Eye clinic Svjetlost and showed great interest in the services that our Clinic provides. Once Mr. Wendell Strickland and Mr. Morgan Pile from Strongside Solutions were welcomed to the Clinic by the management, the idea of mutual cooperation in the field of medical tourism has been discussed in detail.
Strongside Solutions representatives have presented their idea of encouraging the US patients to travel to Croatia for the purpose of acquiring medical (eye) treatments at a much more affordable price. Since they use a large network of US employers who are interested in cost optimization of the health insurance plan for their employees, this would bring benefits for both employees and their employers.
