The existence of a high quality and modern health infrastructure - hospitals, polyclinics, ambulances and the like - are neccesary conditions for the development of structured and planned tourism that moves away from the massive and no organized. Modern and high quality health infrastructure enables full time tourism and development of health tourism in Croatia and the entire Adriatic region. 

The attractiveness of a destination depends on the offered facilities, but also on the degree of safety in health care. Modernizing existing or building new hospitals and health facilities is a prerequisite for the arrival of tourists and their long stay at a certain location; planning and managing the destination means precisely the fulfillment of the conditions for people to feel trust and safety in the health care system in their place of residence.
