Suspension of outpatient and inpatient care in non-acute cases

Dear Visitor,

Amidst the current epidemiological situation and in line with the orders of the competent government bodies, the Buda Health Center (BEK Kft.) is suspending its outpatient and inpatient care in non-acute cases. This mainly pertains to the National Center for Spinal Disorders’ surgical care: as of today, the institute will only see patients in need of acute spinal treatment based on the referral of a general practitioner or a medical clinic specialist. We would like to ask our Patients not to make any further appointments as we will only keep this option open for referring doctors.      

As far as ongoing treatments are concerned, our dispatchers will continuously keep patients posted following the guidance of their respective doctors. Should you have any questions, we recommend contacting your doctor via email through the institute’s email address.      

This measure will change based on central orders upon the alleviation of the epidemic.      


Péter Pál Varga, M.D.
