Greece is one of the best health tourism destinations. The mild climate, the sunny weather almost all year round, the highly skilled medical staff, the outstanding scenery, the fresh air, the natural therapeutic springs, and of course the Mediterranean cuisine makes Greece an ideal country for people with health issues.
Greece has experienced doctors with international recognition. It is well known that many countries seek to employ Greek doctors at their hospitals as they are considered to be highly qualified. Greek medical care has improved a lot and private healthcare services and facilities compete with those of other European countries.
Several patients come to Greece for dental, surgical, hemodialysis, maternity, diagnostics, and rehabilitation issues. The cost is affordable and less than in other countries in Europe.
Traveling to Greece is very easy as it is a destination with many airports, ports and a good road network.
In Greece, the weather is sunny and warm even though in winter. The climate is surely a basic element that appeals to overseas patients. The diverse scenery, lush green forests, beautiful mountains with small villages, fresh air, endless beaches with clear blue water, give the chance to people with health problems to calm their spirit, relax and find inner peace and serenity.
Mediterranean cuisine is ideal for patients. Fresh fruits and vegetables, fish, feta, yogurt, honey, herbs and most importantly the use of olive oil create the perfect healthy diet for patients. Greek traditional cuisine is all about fiber, vitamins, minerals, healthy fats, and antioxidants. Tasteful and healthy nutrition in everyday life protects from several diseases, boosts the human body and makes it stronger.
Greece is considered to be a famous country due to Asclepius-the God of Medicine in ancient Greek Mythology. It’s a country with prolonged life (Ikaria Island, the island of long life), a country with history, natural beauty, and tasteful healthy cuisine.
It has it all. It’s a blessed country!
