European Health Centre is located outside of Warsaw, around 25 minutes away by car. There are signs by the road directing to this hospital. There's a lot of space for parking by the hospital. It is an old building that has been renovated to a high standard. It's located literally in the forest, so being there is very calm and pleasant. The equipment is high tech, state-of-the-art and modern. Staff were very friendly and professional.
