New medical director in Health Spa Piešťany

Piešťany, 23. 10. 2013

Since the beginning of October 2013, MUDr. Rastislav Gašpar joined the Management Team of Slovak Health Spa Piešťany. As the new medical director, he is responsible for the medical competence of the Health Spa.

After finishing his study of general medicine at Jessenius Faculty of Medicine in the town of Martin, he has been working for the Hospital in Ilava and later in Teaching Hospital in Trnava, where he acquired a degree in urology. Then MUDr. Gašpar worked for a prestigious pharmaceutical company, where he gained not only medical experience but also management skills. 

As the director for Department of Health Care of Ministry of Health of the Slovak Republic he has been dealing with legislative activity and cooperation with international organizations within EU and WHO, but he also faced with suggestions and complaints of ordinary patients. He has participated on the European project in the field of increasing safety and quality of health care.

MUDr. Gašpar sees the Health Spa Piešťany as a modern pathbreaking health spa business, which offers not only first class medical care, but also high class hotels and gastronomy.

The vision of Health Spa Piešťany of being the leading European Health Spa remains a huge challenge especially for the medical staff. As a result, MUDr. Gašpar wants to build a team, which is capable of providing not only high quality medical service, but also a good communication with the patients.

His vision is to listen carefully to the patients, to reflect their ideas and to win the patients for an active cooperation during the spa stay and beyond that.

MUDr. Rastislav Gašpar spends much of his spare time with his family or on a bike. During winter goes the ski fan to the mountains.
