Medical Tourism

Medical Tourism in Turkey

In recent years, a notable trend has emerged within the realm of healthcare – the flourishing phenomenon of medical or health tourism. Simply put, health tourism involves the act of traveling to a foreign country to access their medical facilities and healthcare services. Among the frontrunners in this global healthcare migration is Turkey. With each passing year, an increasing number of foreign patients are choosing to seek treatment within its borders. The Turkish government has been actively nurturing the growth of health tourism, with ambitious goals of attracting 2 million patients from various corners of the world by 2023 and generating a revenue exceeding $20 billion. Remarkable milestones have already been reached in pursuit of this vision, with over a million foreign patients gracing Turkish hospitals in the past year alone. This article will shed light on the driving factors behind the influx of foreign patients into Turkey and expound upon the various facets of health tourism.

What Makes Turkey a Magnet for Health Tourism?
While many nations offer advanced medical services, they often come at exorbitant costs, rendering them financially unattainable for many international patients. Turkey, however, stands as an exception in this regard. Local healthcare facilities provide competitive pricing, making diagnostic assessments and treatments here significantly more affordable than their counterparts in the United States or Western Europe and Arab countries all while upholding an unwavering commitment to the delivery of high-quality services. In a bid to attract medical tourists with cost-effectiveness, the government has abolished value-added tax (VAT) for foreign patients receiving treatment in hospitals accredited by the Ministry of Health of Turkey.

Turkey's geographical location, its extensive range of medical services, its enchanting surroundings, and the fact that it encompasses 1.5 billion people across three different continents, all within a four-hour flight radius, position it as the shining star of the global health tourism industry.
