Your gateway to highly specialized healthcare services in West Sweden

Sahlgrenska International Care

Our customers come from all over the world.

Some are facing a health condition that cannot be treated locally. Or their doctor has tried all other means available and has now decided to refer a patient abroad to ensure the best care for a specific diagnosis. Another may be a doctor or a dentist interested in training to pursue a career as a specialist.

Somewhere in the world a new clinic is being set up using organizational and medical know-how from Sweden. In another country a local authority can continue to provide inhabitants with basic healthcare partly thanks to equipment donated from hospitals around Region Västra Götaland.

What can we do for you?
