A lot of people these days seem to be scrambling to find personal physicians or pediatricians taking new patients. In an effort to meet rapidly growing demand across the capital, Health+ – a premium private clinic that offers comprehensive medical care in one place – is gearing up to open its fourth Prague branch at the Poliklinika Vysočany building in May. 

Health+ Vysočany, like the clinic’s other locations, will cater to individuals, families and businesses, providing personalized, client-friendly medical care that the Czech public healthcare system seems too overwhelmed to handle. The new branch will increase the clinic’s patient capacity from 8,000 to 10,500.  

In addition to the healthcare programs available at its other locations, including access to 90 experienced specialists in more than 40 different key areas of medicine, Health+ is preparing a new product for Vysočany – a one-off comprehensive preventive checkups. These checkups are designed to appeal to younger clients as well who do not yet have any medical issues but want to take care of their health. 

One of the cornerstones of our care is prevention. We provide preventive healthcare to all our clients. We aim to prevent their illnesses through early diagnosis. This saves them time, health and eventually money

– MUDr. Pavel Šnajdr, Ph.D., Medical Director

Health+ clients undergo preventive checkups on an annual basis – a service only offered in the public healthcare system once every two years – with extended laboratory testing and the use of imaging methods to help doctors detect some diseases early on or prevent them altogether. The range of equipment in Health+ surgeries far exceeds that of specialized outpatient clinics in conventional medical facilities.

The clinic anticipates all its key specializations will be up and running from May at its Vysočany location, allowing it to offer new clients the same quality of care they can find at its other locations: Health+ Kartouzská, Health+ Vila Radlická and Health+ Brumlovka

Existing clients will also be able to transfer to the Vysočany branch if they prefer. Clients’ electronic medical records are available to the doctors within the Health+ network as well as its partner clinics, making it easy to cooperate between locations. 

Health+ prides itself on offering comprehensive connected medical care in modern environments without the wait. Its client zone and mobile app allow you to chat and video consult with your doctor from the comfort of your home.

It’s exactly this sort of unhurried, individual approach to medical care that has made private clinics like Health+ a tantalizing alternative for those frustrated by the red tape involved when dealing with the public health system. 

A common complaint many have is the long wait times you’ll often encounter at public hospitals or even to see a specialist. Another big one is access to physicians who speak English and are not going to charge extra for the “service.”   

These are non-issues at Health+. If you are suffering from an acute medical problem, the clinic guarantees you’ll be seen by a doctor within 24 hours. Most of the doctors employed at Health+ also speak English or another language to accommodate the large percentage of foreigners registered with the clinic.        

With more than 15 years on the local market, Health+ is on a mission to reintroduce the concept of the family doctor – your go-to medical contact who knows you well, has time for you and will always provide you with excellent care.

“Our doctors work with one-third the usual number of clients, so they always have plenty of time for you. Each appointment is planned for at least 30 minutes,” says Dr. Šnajdr. “This allows them to get to know you better and, as a result, treat you more effectively. If you need a specialized examination, your doctor will arrange it, and you will then have it with us on site.” 

At Health+, 96 percent of a client's medical needs can typically be covered on site, including top-grade preventative, curative, diagnostic, rehabilitative care in one place. The clinic offers a wide range of specializations for adults, including ENT, surgery, orthopedics, dermatology, sonography, urology, diabetology, endocrinology, psychiatry, psychology and physiotherapy.

Health+ also offers a number of specializations targeted toward children, including many high-demand services like neurology, psychology and speech therapy.

The clinic also offers health care to companies for which it is important that their employees are in good shape, helping employers to create care programs tailored to the environment and type of work. Health+ can provide companies with data on overall sickness and the most common health problems and propose a suitable preventive program.

The clinic has three different types of healthcare plans for adults and two for children. If you are struggling to find a personal doctor or are unsatisfied with the care you are receiving from the public health system, contact Health+ today and get on a healthcare plan that works better for you.
