Private medical services in Ukraine are developing with mixed trends. Even in unfavorable times their profitability is high enough to make further investments and expand. High potential allows predicting active further development in the future. Their major function of the market is providing high-quality services to people who can afford them and will prefer them to the services in public hospitals.

The market was defined by the following trends during the last 3 years:
  • Decrease of the number of visits to the private hospitals as a result of the price growth and the decrease of household income.
  • Price growth.
  • The rate of number of visits decrease was lower than the price growth rate. It resulted into the total market growth in 2015-2016.
  • Increase of the total number of hospitals. Despite the crisis market players have invested in new facilities in order to prepare for the reform of the healthcare.
  • The announcement of the reform was continuously put off because of difficulties in the public healthcare sector caused by obsolete system with low financing in the previous years and strong penetration of corruption at all levels.
  • Public sector which competes with the private sector, have seen the decrease of the quality and increase of the cost of treatment. Decrease of the quality has been the result of low expenditures in the state budget. The cost of “free healthcare” consists of costs for medications as prices for most of them have been growing with the exchange rate dynamics (48% UAH decrease in 2014; 83.6% in 2015 and 17.3% in 2016).
The other factor is that patients experience additional payments to the doctors and with the economic crisis ‘charges’ have grown. According to the different researches including media surveys, the average expenditures for treatment in public hospitals accounted for USD 50-400 annually. As a result, deterioration of the competitive positions of public medical services happened. These factors led to the slower decrease of the private medical market. Now they are also the factors of the further private medical services market growth.
