Helvetic Dental Clinics in Budapest has been lauded as ‘Highly Commended’ in a major international medical tourism award, for their efforts in attracting international patients to Budapest, Hungary.

Helvetic Clinics was praised by the judges at the International Medical Travel Journal Medical Travel Awards 2016, an annual ceremony organised by medical travel publication the International Medical Travel Journal (IMTJ).

The awards were presented on 24th May at a high profile reception in Madrid during the International Medical Travel Journal Medical Travel Summit, which brought together all the pre-eminent providers and experts in medical travel and medical tourism sectors. The Awards were generously supported by the Tourism Association of Madrid and Spaincares.

The commendation was given to Helvetic Clinics Hungary in recognition of the International Medical Tourism Hotel of the Year. Helvetic Clinics beat similar dental clinics from around the world to secure the commendation.

“It’s a great honour to receive this award from a major international medical tourism panel, and we are very proud. This prestigious award will contribute to maintaining our solid reputation for the quality of work and service we provide to patients from all around the world,” said Pierre Chaker on receiving the award from Chairman of the judging panel and Managing Editor of IMTJ, Keith Pollard.

In his address, Keith Pollard highlighted how the awards celebrate the best providers in the industry and aim to encourage others to strive to match them:

“Medical travel is an exciting and growing global industry, with many providers delivering excellence in both medical care and customer service. The IMTJ Medical Travel Awards are the only independent awards to recognise those who are the best of the best – and hopefully will encourage others to emulate their success. The judges wanted to reward innovation and excellence, highlight best practice and celebrate those who are leading the way in the industry and delivering successful outcomes for patients.”

“All our winners exemplify the way the medical tourism industry should be run – professional, offering exceptional patient care and providing the best possible medical outcomes. I’m already looking forward to next year’s awards in the hope that other clinics and companies will have raised their game to match or even better this year’s winners.”
