Asklepios Klinik Barmbek in Hamburg, Germany

Where do you find the most expensive of all medical facilities in all of continental Europe? If you said Germany, you would have been right. But before I tell you about it, let me tell you why in Germany. Germany is best known for its economic strength and position as a leading member of the European Union. There is so much to this country. That includes some of the world’s most beautiful scenery, like the snow-capped Alps and the winding Rhine River. Not only that but also their cars and watches. What comes to mind when you think of Germany to me is discipline, luxury, and precision. 

This is no small feat since the country has been at the center of two world wars. And when talking about medicine, they are not lacking behind. Asklepios Klinik Barmbek leads continental Europe as the most expensive and largest medical facility. But size is not a handicap for offering excellent accommodations and service. The hospital caters to patients with pediatric needs all the way to general surgery, staying abreast of the latest technology to provide top-of-the-line patient care. Their deluxe suites are known to have the most comfortable medical beds in the world, don’t ask me who had that joyful task of deciphering it! But if having the best sleep while hospitality is not enough for you, it sure would be for me. Then I am sure the 24-hour room service will seal the deal.

The Truth Behind These Luxuries

Are you wishing you could visit these elite healthcare facilities during your time of need? There is no doubt that the growing number of self-made millionaires coupled with the aging population has given rise to these types of offerings in recent years. Who would have thought only fifty years ago to be talking about making the hospital stay so enjoyable that the patient may not want to leave? But if that patient is shelling out thousands of dollars a night, why not? Although it sounds all so luxurious, the reality is that most of these places were not to turn a profit just with those offering alone. The majority of patients are still people like you and me, bound by insurance with the care directly tied to its limitations. 

The bigger goal for medical facilities such as the ones listed here is to treat those few high spenders so well and make their stay so unforgettable that they may, in the future, turn into donors, and that’s where the money is. The real truth, and good news to us, is that the thread count does not determine baseline medical care. Furthermore, if the patient is bathing inside marble bathrooms does not matter. The expertise of the doctors and medical advancements are more important. A plethora of things relate to medical care. That includes innovation and high standards of the medical facilities in this article. If you are ever in the privilege to have the money to receive care in one of these, don’t hesitate for a second. Indeed, money cannot buy happiness. However, it is equally true that it’s more comfortable to cry in a Ferrari than in a Corolla.
