Munich, Switzerland and, for the last few years, England too. These locations are the European benchmarks for medical and health tourism, a status that Barcelona is also hoping to gain. The target market for these activities comprises clients from the Middle East and the former Soviet Union. Barcelona has the advantage of lower prices than its competitors and a powerful brand as a tourist destination. Now all it needs to do is fly the flag of medical excellence and position the city as an ideal location for medical treatments. To this end, Turisme de Barcelona yesterday signed a partnership agreement with Barcelona Medical Agency (BMA), an association which brings together the city’s top private hospitals.

Interview - Doctor Josep María Ramírez

Josep María Ramírez is a legendary figure. Something like Russia’s Leonid Roshal, but in Catalonia. A permanent director of Guttmann Institute for 25 years, he converted this hospital into a leading neurorehabilitation center known the world over. A person committed to society and the disabled. A tireless fighter. A charismatic leader. And the “BOSS”, as he is called at Guttmann with respect, reverence and a little fear. Because when angry – he is fearsome.

Interview - Olga Solovieva BMA

Everyone in the Catalan medical world knows and loves Olga Solovieva – and a good part of Russian society living in Catalonia as well. Russian-born, now often mistaken as Spanish, Olga is the head of an ambitious international project that brings together the region’s leading hospitals, something rare around these parts. How did she manage it? How is it that the “reserved” Catalans entrusted her with this project, and what is it that her organization does? For this Christmas issue we decided to break the rules and instead of publishing one of her interviews with one of the “stars” of medicine we talked with Olga herself, the Director of Operations of Barcelona Medical Agency…simply put, a lovely woman.
