Total Croatia News

One of the best Croatian hospitals is in the finals of a prestigious international business competition.

Special hospital for orthopaedics, surgery, internal medicine, neurology and physical medicine and rehabilitation “Sv. Katarina” in Zabok near Zagreb, a European centre of excellence, has entered the finals of the European Business Award competition, which awards prizes for excellence, innovation and ethics in business, reports Večernji List on January 10, 2017.

European Business Awards have been supported for years by business leaders, academics, politicians and other public figures throughout Europe, and this year the competition brought together more than 33,000 companies from 34 countries. An independent commission, after the first phase of the competition, chose the Sv. Katarina hospital as a finalist in the Customer Focus category, based on the key criteria which are evaluated by the commission, such as success, innovation and ethics in business.

The hospital is a member of the prestigious group The Leading Hospitals of the World, it is a teaching base of the University of Split, the University of Osijek and the University of Rijeka, and it educates students of medical schools and university nursing studies from Croatia and abroad. In June 2015, the International Certification Association (ICERTIAS) declared the Sv. Katarina Special Hospital as the best private hospital in Croatia. Also, in the evaluation of the best brands in Croatia, Sv. Katarina was named a Superbrand in the medicine category for 2016.

International co-operation with leading medical institutions, such as Unfallkrankenhaus-Berlin, Carolinas Pain Institute and others, gives Sv. Katarina enormous international recognition. Of particular importance is a project which the hospital is carrying out in collaboration with the International Society of Applied Biological Sciences (ISABS) and the world-famous Mayo Clinic from the United States, as well as with the Penn State University. The goal of the project is to organize one of the most prestigious scientific events in 2017, “Tenth ISABS Conference on Forensic and Anthropologic Genetics and Mayo Clinic Lectures and Individualized Medicine”, which will include five Nobel prize winners and take place in June 2017 in Dubrovnik.
