The Philippines is on the rise in medical tourism
The Medical City Clark is strategically located in Kuwait-invested Sabah Al-Ahmad Global Gateway Logistics City
Top notch medical expert on international patient safety and quality healthcare, The Medical City Clark Philippines, was highlighted at the recently concluded Medical Travel Congress at Kuwait Health.
The Medical City Clark, a private tertiary hospital known for its cutting-edge health services with centers of excellence in the field of cardiovascular, cancer, neuroscience and regenerative medicine as well as wellness services, is backed up with 1,500-strong medical staff complimented by a 2,700-member workforce.
The Medical City Clark is strategically located in Kuwait-invested Sabah Al-Ahmad Global Gateway Logistics City, a 177-hectare development named after H.H. Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah, the Emir of Kuwait. The commercial hub provides easy access for patients flying in from Clark International Airport serviced by Emirates Airlines and Qatar Airways.
Speaking at the conference, President and CEO of The Medical City Clark, Dr. Cenon Alfonso underlined the factors that medical patients should consider in choosing a destination to acquire healthcare services and treatment.
The Philippines is currently ranked 8th in the world as the preferred destination for people seeking treatment, consultation and diagnostics. The country receives about 250,000 patients from around the world every year. At The Medical City Clark, about 50% of the patients are non-Filipinos coming from USA, Korea, Japan, Australia, United Kingdom and Germany. According to Dr. Alfonso, "Foreign medical tourists choose the Philippines for their aesthetic and un-complicated procedures while thousands of Filipino expats return home for medical care and combine it with their family visit."
Kuwait has been very resolute in its efforts to support the healthcare needs of its nationals. Last year, the government earmarked US$1 billion budget to pay the hospital bills of Kuwaitis that are medically treated abroad as part of the overseas treatment program.
The Kuwait Health Exhibition and Conference 2017 was an important platform for The Medical City Clark not just to showcase the medical and healthcare status of the Philippines but to also continue to expand its network, explore opportunities and partnership and provide solutions to patients founded on their unique holistic approach and personalized care.
