Poland's medical tourism market growing 10% p.a.

Poland’s medical-tourism business was worth PLN 1.4 billion (EUR 340 million) in 2014, a 10 percent rise on the previous year, a report finds.

Last year, 390,000 foreigners used Polish hospitals and outpatient facilities, the Polish Association of Medical Tourism (PSTM) said in a report.

The average value of a procedure amounted to PLN 3,600, a whopping 50 percent jump on the level in 2011.
The trade association expects continued growth of about 10 percent a year thanks to lower costs than in the western Europe. Globally the industry is growing at 20 percent.

Dentistry and plastic surgery remain among the most popular services for foreigners, but interest in neurosurgery and oncology is also on the rise.
