What are healthcare services like in Korcula?

Answer this Question

We asked retirees if they have access to good medical care in Korcula. They wrote...

"Healthcare services in Korcula are generally of a high standard, with a well-equipped local hospital and several pharmacies available for residents and visitors. The hospital provides a range of services including emergency care, general medicine, and specialized treatments. Doctors and medical staff are well-trained, with many able to communicate in English and other foreign languages. The island also has several private clinics and dental practices, offering a range of healthcare services. These private facilities often have shorter waiting times and offer more personalized care, but they can be more expensive than public healthcare services. In terms of public health, the island has a strong focus on preventative care and health education. There are regular health checks for children and adults, and vaccination programs are in place. For more serious conditions or specialized treatments, patients may need to travel to larger cities on the mainland. However, the island has good transport links, including a regular ferry service, making it relatively easy to access healthcare services elsewhere in Croatia. Overall, while healthcare services on the island may not be as extensive as in larger cities, they are generally of a high quality and are able to meet the needs of most residents and visitors," remarked another expat in Korcula, Croatia.
