Tartu University Hospital is the largest provider of medical care in Estonia, and all of the fields practised in the country are represented here. In several fields (such as kidney, bone marrow and liver transplantation and congenital heart disease surgery) it is the only medical institution in Estonia with specialists at such a high level. As Tartu University Hospital is the only hospital of its kind in Estonia, it plays a substantial role in both the undergraduate and post-graduate lives of students, as well as in the development of the country's medical science. Education and research are undertaken in close collaboration with the Medical Faculty of Tartu University. The hospital's mission is to be recognised as a leader in ensuring the continuity and development of Estonian medicine through high-level integrated medical treatment, training and research. Tartu University Hospital provides inpatient, outpatient and community-based services to patients residing all over Estonia.
Clinic Elite was opened in 2001 in a house built to be a comfortable and modern private clinic. Elite's mission is to provide high quality medical service in a private and relaxed atmosphere.
Elite offers only proven assisted reproduction techniques for infertility treatment and shows very good results in egg donation, embryo adoption and IVF.
Elite Clinic's IVF laboratory team has remained the same for more than 15 years – only experienced professionals. Head of Elite Clinic and IVF department Dr Andrei Sõritsa, PhD, is very experienced and well-known IVF specialist. First IVF baby in the Baltics was born in 1995 as a result of his team work. The field of infertility treatment in Estonia is regulated since 1997 by a law “Assisted Fertilization and Protection of the Embryo” and Dr A. Sõritsa was a part of a workgroup compiling the law.
Elite Clinic is the only private hospital and infertility clinic in Estonia with a certificate of conformity. “The international certificate shows both to Estonian and foreign patients that they can trust us and that we are interested in constant evolution and really care about our patients' well-being” - Dr Andrei Sõritsa justifies the need for certification.
There was the introduction of ISO quality management system in Elite Clinic in spring 2011, which resulted in the audit that took place in June and ISO 9001:2008 quality management certificate was issued to Elite Clinic.
Aim is to concentrate to every aspect of every client’s wishes individually to ensure high quality medical services which are provided in comfortable conditions and privacy.
Quality of the service
is guaranteed by modern medical technologies, highly qualified staff, years of experience and a continuous development of the staff through both international and internal conferences and trainings.
Staff is comprised of only experienced professionals, who has an extensive scope of experience and skills along with requisite education and specialization. All the physicians have at least 15 years and laboratory and operating theaters staff at least 10 years of experience.
Comfort and individuality
The building is built to meet the needs of all the international standards of a private clinic. The entire treatment process takes place in the same building. Rooms are decorated so the client would feel comfortable without a sensation of the hospital environment.
In order to provide the quality service and meet the customers' expectations feedback surveys are carried out and customer’s suggestions are implemented.
The team will pursue the implementation of the quality policy, objectives and ensure their compliance with the ISO 9001 standard-compliant management system through continual improvement. The quality policy was confirmed on 05/26/2011. (All photos: Meeli Küttim / Äripäev)
