Despite the economic troubles in Greece, medical tourism is one sector of business that is still going strong
Managing partner of German Communications Xperts (GCX), Stefan d’Hone, is optimistic about the medical tourism market in Greece because the country has high quality medical procedures available at lower costs than competing countries.
Mr. d’Hone works specifically to attract German patients to Greek medical centers. He says the biggest issue is, “The German public simply does not know that there are brilliant doctors and brilliant medical treatments in Greece, and it is our job to make the public know about these facts.”
Greece is not yet well known in Germany as a location for high quality medical services- but it remains a popular tourist destination. Stefan’s goal is to produce positive media about Greece so German’s will think positively about the country. He recommends combining vacation with a medical treatment such as plastic surgery or another procedure that can be done on an outpatient basis. Many German nationals travel for plastic surgery because it is not covered by German healthcare.
