Medical tourism or Health Tourism is a growing sector in India. As medical treatment costs in the developed world keeps going up, more and more Westerners are traveling to India for medical care. An estimated 150,000 of these travel to India for low-priced healthcare procedures every year.

Why India?

Considering that English is spoken and understood almost everywhere in India language is not a barrier. India also has a large pool of competent doctors and offers World Class Medical Facilities that are comparable or even better than those in western countries. With competitive charges, India is a very lucrative destination for people wanting to undergo treatment of certain medical problems that do not need immediate emergency treatment.

How It Works?

A patient generally gets treatment and vacation in the same trip. After medical treatment, patients can discover India with the help of Tour Guides provided by their medical facilities and under the guidance of their doctor. The complete package is generally at a fraction of what the patients would have to pay for the medical charges alone, in other countries.

Where to Find Accredited Medical Facilities:
JCI ((Join Commission International) works with health care organizations, governments, and international advocates to promote rigorous standards of care and provide solutions for achieving peak performance.
You can find a list of JCI accredited medical facilities in India at http://www.jointcommissioninternational.org/jci-accredited-organizations/
