Ivana Vlahović, HR Director, Bel Medic

A Good Team is the Key to Our Success

Bel Medic has been the leader in private healthcare for 24 years, a high-quality service institution, with top specialists in all fields of medicine, nurses and orderlies who, in addition to their professional skills, above all show that they are good, caring people

The key to their success is perseverance, persistence, clear goals, good control and management of all processes and procedures that guarantee quality service, security and safety for patients. Their patients know that they can get the best doctor for their problem at any moment in Bel Medic .

Bel Medic has been the leader in private healthcare in the region for almost a quarter of a century. How do you get to the top and how do you survive there?

– From the very beginning of her career, dr Jasmina Knežević had the idea of providing the patient with a better service – high-quality treatment, security and a human touch, which was quite lacking in state practice. The key to success in this way of development are perseverance, persistence, clear goals, good control and management of all processes and procedures that guarantee quality service, security and safety for patients. Patient care is at the forefront with the possibility for a patient to get the best choice of doctors at any time for his or her problem. We place great emphasis on the education and development of professional skills of our staff, and on developing empathy, dedication and patient care. People are the key to the success of each company and this synergy of all our employees has contributed to Bel Medic being a leader in private healthcare in Serbia.

When we employ new team members, in addition to expert knowledge and reputation, we expect them to be good people whose value system is compatible with Bel Medic’s

Your healthcare system has 400 permanent staff and nearly 400 consultants, eminent experts of all specialties. Is it a privilege to be part of the great Bel Medic family?

– When you work in the company of good people who are top experts in their field, it’s definitely a privilege and the honour to be a part of such team. We are trying to hire experts in all areas that support the whole system because the system cannot function perfectly without excellent people in finance, marketing, quality control, sales, human resources and other related operations.


Of course, a special emphasis is given to medical personnel, we try to employ the best doctors in Serbia, to motivate them and provide good working conditions and an environment in which they will be most satisfied, so they will give the best possible results so we can cooperate on a long-term bases. This certainly applies to the middle layer of medical staff, we have top nurses and orderlies, anaesthetists, radiologic technicians…

Twenty four years ago, the founders of Bel Medica wanted to create an institution better than its individuals. Does this mean that the selection of a candidate for each workplace is approached with extreme care?

– Developing Bel Medic, dr Knežević concluded that the system cannot rely on the conscience and responsibility of the individual. That is why it is very important to set clear rules and procedures at every level and it is necessary to form a good team of people who will respect and implement the defined procedures in their daily work. The HR department has eight members who are, among other things, engaged in recruiting and selecting top experts in their fields. Each candidate has several rounds of conversation, often certain tests too, in order to increase the chance of employing a person who will be an important member of Bel Medic and will create additional value for Bel Medic with their work, regardless of the workplace they are assigned.
