increasing health and safety for hospital patients

NTSH Otrila is a relatively young business entity, initially operating in the field of otorhinolaryngology as daily hospital. Since 2017, the company services were expanded to orthopedy and radiology, including a laboratory located in a new and modern facility. Today, the Special Hospital for Otorhinolaryngology and Orthopedics “Otrila” successfully covers about 70% of the Kosovo market in field of aesthetic nose operations (Rhinoseptoplastka), with domestic as well as foreign clients trusting the clinic’s their services.

With the help of the Kosovo SME Competitiveness Support Programme, the clinic invested in the purchase of a brand-new tomography scanner system with a computed tomography injection system. Otrila Special Hospital now offers a full range of services to its clients, from the beginning to the end of the surgery, which increases client retention.

This new machine also improves occupational Health and Safety conditions for staff and patients as it enables complete flexibility of the workstation, keeping staff perfectly safe from radiation and enabling them to perform their tasks in a safe and comfortable environment.
