It is important to specify that according to the definition in medicine "an emergency is any sudden or acute condition that disrupts the vital functions of the body and leads to death or permanent and severe damage to the body." This is in most cases difficult to assess by a layman and often, especially on weekends and holidays, as well as in the evening, we may have to resort to emergency services. These are usually available at large hospitals for multidisciplinary treatment.
In Plovdiv, the state emergency centers are at UMHAT St. George (VMI) at 66 Peshtersko Shosse Blvd and UMHAT Plovdiv (District Hospital) at 234 Bulgaria Blvd, and the municipal one is MHAT St. Panteleimon (Second City Hospital) on 9 Nikola Vaptsarov Blvd. For children from 0 to 18 years of age, the office at the Children's Clinic of UMHAT St. George, located at 26 Lyuben Karavelov Street, is used.
Admission, medical triage, stabilization, diagnosis, treatment and consultations of emergency patients, if necessary, and hospitalization in the inpatient units of the institution are also performed at the Pulmed private hospital. All patients outside the category of "emergency" pay for the medical services provided to them according to the established price list of the hospital.
You can get 24-hour service for a fee: in Medical Center 6-150, both in the city of Plovdiv and for residents of nearby towns and villages; in Plovdiv Medical, located at 42 Saedinenie Street and offering outpatient examinations 24 hours a day or examinations and medical manipulations at home, as well as medical transport; or in Medicus Alpha, where an internist is available who, if necessary, organizes additional diagnostic tests and consultations with a specialist.
For children this type of private clinics are Vela, located near the Leipzig Hotel on Lyuben Karavelov Street, Plovdivmed, a 24-hour children's polyclinic on Osvobozhdenie Blvd next to SPS Hotel, as well as the 24-hour children's polyclinic at 15 Modar Street near Komatevsko Shose.
In case of non-emergency conditions, it is customary to consult your GP or a relevant specialist.
