IRIS NURSING HOME AND IRIS INSTITUTE

Our history

IRIS NURSING HOME

In 2006, in the Central Park of Balatonföldvár on the southern shore of Lake Balaton, we opened the IRIS Nursing Home (as it was then called), with the aim of providing high-quality personalized care for people with chronic health conditions.

IRIS INSTITUTE

In June 2019, another building for 120 patients was handed over as part of a capacity expansion investment. The profile of the new facility has been expanded to include treatment of patients in a persistent vegetative state and is aligned with the constantly evolving international standard of health care. As of 2019, we continue our dedicated work as the IRIS Institute.
