All foreign patients treated for cancer in Cuba stay at La Pradera International Health Center. Established in 1996, La Pradera is a comfortable hotel with a pool that patients can use.
In La Pradera, a modest facility, different rehabilitation programs are implemented in 10 specialties. Oncology, heart diseases, diabetes, hearing disorders, skin diseases and orthopedics are some of them.
La Pradera, like every hospital in Cuba, is dependent on the state. Surgery is not performed in La Pradera, if surgical operation is required, foreign patients are sent to other Cuban hospitals and taken to La Pradera for rehabilitation.
Many well-known names of the world were hosted at the clinic in Havana. Diego Armando Maradona, one of the legendary names of football, is one of the world-famous names who have been treated in La Pradera.
