Growth in the market for non-public hospitals in the Central European countries of Bulgaria, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland, Romania and Slovakia has been curtailed, to a degree, by lack of ability to spend large amounts on private healthcare in these six countries. Populations more commonly use public healthcare systems, but the affluent are increasingly turning to private hospitals in order to take advantage of faster service and higher quality care.
Changes in the field of healthcare, combined with advancing economies, have prepared the private sector for potential growth that was unexpected until recently.
