Our Benefits


The Clinic

The Sofia Hospital of Obstetrics, Gynaecology and Reproductive Medicine, formed in 2004, is one of Bulgaria’s top three largest and most patient-friendly clinics. In 2011, we moved to purpose designed new premises built and equipped to the strictest European and world healthcare standards. The Clinic has a diagnostic and consultation sector, operating theatres and treatment rooms, in-patient wards, an embryological laboratory, a diagnostic analysis laboratory, and a cryobank. All laboratories, surgeries and treatment areas are equipped with the latest assisted reproduction technology.

The building is located in a leafy, calm part of the metropolis, far from noise and pollution, yet just 20 minutes from the airport. One of the city’s better four-star hotels is right next to the Clinic, offering additional convenience to our patients.

The Clinic is open seven days a week. Prices for Bulgarian and foreign patients are identical. No time is wasted waiting in queues.
