GCR is the only internationally independent organization that serves patients as well as owners of polyclinics and clinics worldwide.Source :: Global Clinic Rating”The overall international clinical reputation of the Bagatin Polyclinic for 2018 was rated very high at 4.55, which placed us at the very top. This indicates an increasing health standard throughout Europe, but also in Croatia. ” they point out from the Bagatin Polyclinic and add that by combining technology and an individual approach, they create a complete and ideal program for clients, with which they achieve the best and long-lasting results.Global Clinic Rating (GCR) is an international accreditation body that evaluates medical institutions based on 4 criteria: staff expertise, technological equipment and quality of medical and non-medical units, range and quality of medical and non-medical procedures and services, and patient reviews and evaluations on independent websites ( like Google and Facebook).The success of the Bagatin Polyclinic is just another in a series of successes of our polyclinics, specialized hospitals, surgeries on the competitive market of Europe and proof that it is high time to start seriously and strategically dealing with health tourism.From year to year, the Bagatin Polyclinic receives recognitions and awards from the profession and patients, in various healthcare activities offered on the market, and is ranked among the best polyclinics in Europe, as evidenced by the aforementioned GCR recognition. In addition to the Bagatin Polyclinic in Croatia, we also have other excellent and recognized clinics that are excellent in their fields, such as St. Catherine’s Special Hospital, Svjetlost Special Hospital, Medico Polyclinic, Rident… and many other smaller practices that are leading in the region and among the best in Europe.So, we have an excellent foundation for health tourism from Rijeka, Zagreb, Osijek and other cities on the Adriatic that are slowly rising, we have the most important clinics that are among the best and leading in the region and Europe. However, the clinics themselves do not constitute health tourism, this must be taken care of by tourist destinations, ie tourist boards headed by the CNTB and the Ministry of Tourism, to complete the whole cycle and story about health tourism.The private sector has long since made its own, from various clinics, specialized hospitals and surgeries that are the main base and prerequisite for the development of health tourism, but again we fall for a system that obviously does not know or want to round it off as a tourism product. We have everything, from hotels, clinics, spas, suitable climates, connectivity, restaurants, tourist stories, but again the system is slowing down and not at the level it should be.How long do we have to wait for something to really move from a standstill? We live in the 21st century where change is getting faster and faster, where there is strong competition, where it is getting harder and harder to stand out and get attention, and we still prefer competition in the environment because we are sluggish, inert and content with the sun and by the sea.Health tourism is one of the focuses of the Master Plan for Tourism Development until 2020, but a lot is written on paper of various strategies and master plans – the paper suffers everything, and unfortunately there are still no concrete changes in the field. Entrepreneurs are shouting loudly and sending an appeal to tourist institutions to get involved and for health tourism to become part of the integrated Croatian tourist offer. It is obviously time for some concrete changes and actions, because we do not have another ten years to wait for some concrete changes to happen and to arrange a quality story about health tourism in Croatia.According to estimates, the total revenues that are generated globally in the field of medical tourism today exceed 60 billion dollars, and in just a few years that number will exceed 100 billion dollars. Although there are about 1.100 medical tourism service providers in Croatia, only five percent of tourists (patients) come from foreign markets, primarily from Italy, Slovenia and Bosnia and Herzegovina.We are constantly talking about potentials, it is time to concretize those potentials. Right now and now, because when if not now – when Croatian tourism is a trend in the focus of global tourists and the media.We have everything and everything is up to us.</p>
