Dear reader!

Idealism and joy are the reason that I am placing my professional expertise back on the market. I find solutions and offer protection. I have invested 30 years of business and professional experience in this sentence.
There are many medical services on the market. It’s debatable whether all of them are really necessary.
On the other hand, the demand for some services exceeds supply, making prices unacceptably high.
I found continual inspiration for my work in the words of old Confucius:
“To see what is right, and not to do it, is want of courage or of principle.”
My mission was to gather the best professionals and organize a network.

Knowledge and experience gained from my experience as a doctor give me the courage to make decisions. Travel and learning about people, customs, and traditions from around the world give me ideas and suggestions. My fears always bring me a solution.
In this way I maintain the highest standards in order to ensure that my clients’ expectations are met. My guiding principle is to offer my clients safety and security. I know that my professional knowledge together with my years of experience and my organizational skills, as well as my participation in national and international committees, will help me carry out this mission.
I do what I can, in the time that I have. However, you get at least three choices!

Why Institut Hedel?

Because the health is the most important for each of us!

Especially during the last years, the awareness for their own health arouse and changed. Due to enormous changes within the health system plus upcoming reductions of the health insurances in regards of a wide range of services more and more people try to strengthen their health with private add-on services and healthy products.

Because I know and can!

Behind me are years of experience in private practice, crisis management, preventive care, and health education. I managed mobile, home-based physiotherapy and preventive medicine for elderly people. During the War, I acquired specialized knowledge and skills that equipped me to take the right course of action in crisis situations. From the beginning I work on research. I have always been active in the field of education. In recent years, I have been communicating my experiences through activities in the fields of medicine and tourism. I founded a company in Austria that coordinates the work of medical and related institutions with the aim of increasing their cooperation. I work with several national and international institutions that are active in the fields of medical tourism and eldercare. I was a member of the board of the Reference Center for Gerontology at the Ministry of Health of the Republic of Croatia and a member of the Austrian Society for Care and Case Management. I am a recognized certifier for medical facilities in health tourism and I was an extraordinary member of the UEHP (European Union of Private Hospitals).
