Technological improvements in Philippine hospitals contributed to medical tourism growth

Seeing a growth in the country’s medical industry thanks to the improvement of healthcare in the Philippines in the past decade, the Philippine government made medical tourism a national industry in the year 2006. Aside from technological improvements, the country also owes this growth to the number of tourists who flock to the country annually seeking affordable medical treatment.

 From cosmetic surgery to dental implants –the Philippines is one of the leading medical tourist spots in Asia together with its neighbors Thailand and Taiwan.

Although government hospitals are not yet at par with JCI accredited hospitals such as St. Luke’s, the quality of care given to locals has also improved according to the Department of Health.
