UAB SK Impeks Medicinos diagnostikos centras (hereinafter – Medical Diagnostic and Treatment Center) was founded in 1995 following the latest North American and Western European model of private clinics.
The Center has been among the pioneers of private medical practice in Lithuania.
When the Center was opened in 1995, physicians representing 20 medical specialties consulted and treated patients, while the Center carried out about 200 types of laboratory tests.
In the same year, Medical Diagnostic and Treatment Center was the first in Lithuania to acquire computed tomography, which for quite a while served in generating tomograms for the residents all over Lithuania.
In 2005, the Center celebrated its ten-year anniversary by opening a new block containing a modern Surgery Center with in-patient and day units of surgery, anaesthesiology, emergency and intensive care, three operating theatres containing state-of-the-art equipment, an emergency room and patient wards.
The new block also houses allergology, dietology, physical medicine and rehabilitation, ophthalmology, orthopaedics-traumatology and radiology centers, as well as consulting and diagnostic-examination rooms for physicians.
In 2007, the 1000th operation was performed at the Center of Surgery.
In 2010, in order to reflect the wide spectrum of services in a more accurate way, the name Medical Diagnostic Center was replaced with Medical Diagnostic and Treatment Center.
In 2011, the Laboratory Diagnostic Center of the Center was the first in Lithuania accredited according to the international standard intended for the medical laboratories ISO 15189. This accreditation is the highest international recognition of the guarantee of precision and reliability of the tests conducted by the laboratory of the Medical Diagnostic and Treatment Center.
In 2012, the Center was accredited according to the standard “Treatment Abroad, Code of Practice.” The health care institutions, which voluntarily implemented this standard, are valued as providing the high-quality services, encouraging the development of medical tourism of the best-practice. The Center is in the meantime the only medical institution in the Baltic States having this Certificate.
At the end of 2012, the Division of the In-Patient Department of the Surgery was expanded twofold.
Medical Diagnostic and Treatment Center was one of the first Lithuanian health care institution to introduce an integrated quality and environment management system and to be awarded for high quality service provision by the internationally acclaimed organisation Bureau Veritas Quality International with ISO certificate: ISO 9001:2008.
