Wiener Privatklinik (WPK), one of the biggest private hospitals in Austria, treated 630 Romanian patients in 2017, twice more than in the previous year, the hospital announced in a press release.
Romanian patients represented 20% of the hospitals international clients.
Some 60% of the Romanian patients went to WPK for its innovative cancer treatments, namely immunotherapy and personalized targeted therapy. Another 10% of the Romanian clients went for check-up or second medical opinion services and the remaining 30% were treated in the orthopedics, traumatology and sports medicine, and cardiovascular medicine centers.
The increase in the number of Romanian patients was also due to the opening of a WPK office in Bucharest in 2016.
Vienna is one of the preferred medical destinations for wealthy Romanian patients. The Vienna General Hospital (AKH) has also been treating a high number of Romanians each year.
