"Poland has emerged as one of the favored destinations for medical tourism among international travelers. The low-cost treatment facilities coupled with well established tourism and health infrastructure has led to favorable growth of medical tourism market in Poland. In recent years large number of patients from UK, Germany and other destinations have visited Poland for dental and other medical treatments.
According to our analysis medical tourism market in Poland will witness phenomenal growth in near future mainly due to huge cost savings and long waiting time for treatment in western countries. The increasing level of investment in private healthcare facilities and focus on promotional activities by associations and government will further strengthen the position of Poland as favored destination for medical tourism. It is further anticipated that Poland will give stiff competition to already established destinations for medical tourism like India, Singapore and Thailand."

Medical tourism has become Poland’s specialty”, Rzeczpospolita excitedly leads on its front page.
