The newest entry in the field of medical tourism, Indore is on the rise to project India as a giant in the medical industry. In the recent time, a huge inflow of foreign patients into the city of Indore has been witnessed. This has been made possible by the introduction of world-class medical technologies in the city hospitals. Leading from the front is Medanta Indore, which is a super-specialty hospital in the suburbs.
On this, Dr. Rajneesh Kachhara, head of Institute of Neurosciences, Medanta Indore stated “Till now, medical tourism patients have largely been visiting India’s metros but we feel that Indore has the potential of becoming the medical tourism hub of central India and ranking high on India’s map of cities offering quality medical care. At Medanta, our commitment towards continual improvement and excellence has touched a chord with our patients. We hope to host a good share out of the 2.4 million medical tourists, who are expected to visit India by 2020.”
At such a pace, Medical tourism industry in India is most likely to touch the mark of $6 billion. Cities like New Delhi, Chennai, Hyderabad, Mumbai and Bangalore are known to serve around 700,000 international patients every year. With the addition of tier 2 city like Indore, a major boost in the medical tourism industry is very much predicted.
As per Abzalov Mirumar, one of the foreign patients (Uzbekistan) visiting Medanta Indore,” I chose Medanta Indore for their quality of treatments and expertise of their doctors. The facilities at Indore are comparable to the best in the world and are no less than a metro. I would recommend Indore, and indeed India to anyone from my country.”
