 Hyderabad - Hot Destination for Medical Tourism
Chief Minister K Rosaiah has said that Hyderabad is fast becoming a major health tourism center as many foreign patients are opting to get treated here.

"Hyderabad has become one of the major health tourism hubs in India as a number of hospitals are providing services at affordable costs. Hundreds of foreigners are showing interest to obtain better health care treatment in Hyderabad hospitals which employ the latest technology and have modern facilities,'' the CM revealed.

He was speaking on the occasion of the launch of a new Cardio Vascular Disease (CVD) prevention initiative, called 'Healthy Hearts' project at the national-level Prevent India- 2010 conference.

This project has been launched by the Medwin Hearts Foundation. Dr Ramesh Babu Byrapaneni, president of Medwin Heart Foundation, said the new initiative would help policy-makers and health care professionals develop guidelines for screening and preventing heart disease.

So timely post! Medical tourism has spawned businesses that get, qualify and publish data on the best international hospitals. “6 million Americans will travel abroad for medical tourism in 2010" - and this impressive statistic database purge American medical tourism agencies to develop partner relationship with famous hospitals, doctors across the world. For example, Members of the Care Destinations staff have PERSONALLY undergone procedures at EVERY network facility, verified EVERY network physician's credentials and spent a night in EVERY network hotel to ensure complete client satisfaction.
