Benefits of treatment in clinics in Finland

Treatment in Finland

Here are some benefits of getting treatment in Finland:

  • Financing of Finnish clinics is mostly carried out by the state. The development of medical services is one of the priority tasks of the state policy of Finland; therefore, from the state budget of the country, 11.7% of GDP is spent on medicine. For comparison, in Israel this figure is 9.5%, while in Germany it is equal to 8.1% of GDP. This allows to spend significant funds on equipping clinics and training highly qualified specialists, mastering new advanced diagnostic and treatment methods;
  • Highly developed diagnostic school. Diagnostics of pathology before treatment is carried out with the help of innovative techniques on modern diagnostic equipment;
  • At the legislative level, the cost of many procedures is fixed and fairly moderated, which, in the opinion of the Government of Finland, should attract more medical tourists to the country;
  • Polite and helpful staff. The mentality of the Scandinavian peoples is such that the inhabitants of this country are very welcoming and open. Consequently, the medical staff also cares about the patient, putting his health and comfort at the forefront;
  • Receiving this or that medical service from the Finnish clinic, patients have an insurance policy in their hands. In the event of a dispute, each clinic in Finland has an ombudsman who helps resolve all conflict situations.

Rest and treatment in resorts in Finland

Sanatoriums of Finland

Another popular area of ​​medical services provided in Finland is treatment at a sanatorium. The definition of a sanatorium, which is familiar to us, is an institution in which, along with medical services, the natural features of the area are used. In Europe, a slightly different approach, sanatoriums are referred to as institutions where tuberculosis was treated. Analogues of sanatoriums are called spa hotels. Naturally, they settled in areas with natural factors that favorably affect health. Using the services of a sanatorium and combining recreation with treatment in Finland is also available to a medical tourist. We list the most popular resorts in Finland:
