Island Of Brac To Put Croatia On World Medical Tourism Map

A 275 million euro Medical-Tourism project on the Dalmatian island of Brac is gaining momentum, reports daily Slobodna Dalmacija.

800 thousand square metres of land in Nerezisca on the island of Brac has already been purchased, with plans to purchase a further 300 thousand, to build the Medis Brachia complex which will see a medical centre built, including a special clinic for healing tumors, dependence hotels, apartments, wellness and spas, sports facilities and restaurants.

“A clinic with revolutionary methods of curing the worst kind of tumors will lift Nerezisca, Brac and Croatia to the top of the world for medical tourism. Our country will be right along side Germany, Austria, Italy and Japan,” said the head of Nerezisca’s council

The medical centre complex is expected to open up around 820 jobs on the island, of which 40% will be highly specialised positions. Investors behind the project have just returned from one of the few centres of its kind in the world in Austria.
