Highly trained and specialised medical staff, relatively low cost medical services and easy accessibility create an excellent framework here in Greece to open up the market to "Medical Tourism"according to a recent article entitled "Medical Tourism 2020".
Plenty of natural resources, the excellent climate, combined with the medical infrastructure in Greece's private sector, and a large number of hotels make medical tourism in Greece a highly competitive product with the potential to attract a large number of "tourists".
Rhodes already has a state of the art clinic, Euromedica, which opened back in November 2006. A high tech and fully equipped facility, with experienced, dedicated and highly trained medical and nursing staff.
Rhodes is well known for its endless days of sunshine. Today for example, January 13th the temperature is a very mild 20 degrees. This mild climate and the beauty of the island are just a couple of reasons so many visitors have decided to stay on a more permanent basis.
