    Medical Tourism: Empowering Global Healthcare

    India is becoming the most preferred healthcare destination among foreigners. Moreover in support of the government and fuelled by the country’s thriving corporate boom in medical care, a rising number of medical tourists are crossing national boundaries to seek treatment that is much cheaper than in their native countries. This segment has therefore grown to become a multibillion dollar industry that is all set to surge further in the coming future. Citing its promising outlook, medical bodies strive to establish collaborations with various travel agencies, top-class hotels and other hospitality service providers to ensure utmost comfort to international tourists in every aspect by taking care of their end-to-end requirements.
