20 Years in Hungary: A message from FirstMed CEO, Dennis Diokno

Over the past twenty years, FirstMed has experienced an exciting journey. Our team started with five employees and has grown to over 100. We are proud that a little over 75% of our employees have been with us for five or more years…13 have been with us since our first year! Our experienced team of health care professionals focuses on providing FirstMed patients with the best experience.

When FirstMed started twenty years ago, it was the first private clinic in Budapest to provide multiple medical services under one roof. The clinic’s comprehensive in-house lab and diagnostic equipment were also firsts in the market. We also pioneered the acceptance of international insurance policies, starting with just a few plans and growing the number to over a hundred.

The private health care market in Hungary has experienced rapid growth in the past ten years. FirstMed continues to expand its services to meet the increasing demand. While other clinics may focus on increasing the numbers of patients that they see, we are committed to growing our services while continuing to provide the superior customer experience that our patients expect.

In the coming months, you may notice the additional FirstMed’s growth in the Hattyúház. We are adding more in-house services with more consultation rooms and a new procedure room. These are just a few of the many additions that FirstMed is making.

Finally, there would be no need for FirstMed to continue adding staff and increasing the clinic’s size if it were not for our thousands of patients and our many partners. On behalf of the FirstMed team, I want to thank you for your business and support. We look forward to serving you for many years to come.
