Rajasthan will soon attract patients from neighboring countries as it is set to announce better healthcare packages for foreign nationals as part of its medical tourism package.
Obviously, the government is not targeting to attract patients from the West and other developed countries. But through this policy, they will offer better healthcare services to the patients coming from the neighboring countries like Bangladesh, Nepal, Afghanistan etc.
The department officials claimed that because of the free-medicine scheme, patients from neighboring states have increased. Now the state government is targeting patients, who require ‘terminal care’ from the neighboring states.
Manas Arogya Sadan Heartcare in partnership with Multi-specialty Hospital for a period of 30 years is expected to become operational from September 2012.
Besides, state government confirmed that Bombay Hospital would also come up in Jaipur as its land allotment process by the Jaipur Development Authority is in the final stages.
This shows that Medical tourism in Rajasthan is a rapidly growing opportunity for people to recover themselves as well as discover the culture and heritage of Rajasthan.
