Tokuda Hospital Sofia


International Ward

International Collaboration, Experience Exchange, and Best Practices:

Our International Ward was created in collaboration between Tokuda Hospital Sofia, the Tokushukai Medical Group Japan, and Cambridge University Hospitals Addenbrookes from the UK all whom are on the management board of Tokuda Hospital Sofia to deliver innovative medical service and patient care excellence by global best health care practices from each partner organization. 

International Team:

Our International Ward personnel consists of multi-lingual nursing staff and physicians with international professional experience, whom have been additionally  trained to provide patient focused medical service based on specific cultural preferences and individualized patient needs.

Comprehensive and Multidisciplinary Diagnostics and Treatment: 

Our International Ward provides our patients full access to a wide spectrum of diagnostic and treatment services across our 30 plus medical specialties from cardiac surgery, interventional cardiology, neurology, neurosurgery, vascular surgery, CCSVI diagnostics and treatments, mini-invasive surgery (laparoscopic key-hole procedures), and many others. Our medical teams are dedicated to and routinely deliver multidisciplinary care via teams of specialists from different medical disciplines collaborating together based on the patient case to comprehensively treat complex medical conditions.

Increased Patient Access, Reduced Waiting Times, and International Specialists: 

Our International Ward is committed to increase patient access to innovative treatments by providing a platform for guest-doctors to provide treatments in our hospital. Thus patients can choose his/her specialist, can invite his physician from other hospitals, and/or even bring specialists from other countries to perform treatments in Tokuda taking full advantage of our excellent accommodation, assistance, and medical resources.

These features are the cornerstone of our International Ward namely to bring highly sought after specialists directly to patients in need.  This approach offers a rapid and convenient solution for patients in countries with long treatment waiting lists, for patients in need of innovative medical treatments not available in their countries, and or medical tourists looking for the best combination of comfort, price, and value.  Furthermore due to our convenient location between the Europe and Asia, we can significantly reduce travel time and travel expenses for medical tourists seeking treatment in more distant countries such as India or Thailand.

Hospital of Patient Choice:

Since our hospital began in 2006, we rapidly became the hospital of choice in Bulgaria for local and international patients. In 2011 alone, we delivered medical services to over 8,000 international patients including medical tourists whom traveled to Tokuda from the following countries/regions: 400 from the USA, 800 from Canada, 1,000 from the EU, 350 from Russia and the former Soviet republics, and over 200 from the Middle East. 

In direct response to patient choice and the growing demand for our services, we created our International Ward to continue to develop as a preferred medical tourism destination offering high quality medical care and high patient value services at competitive pricing.
