Hyderabad hospitals to focus on medical tourism


Hospitals in Hyderabad already welcome many foreign patients who want medical treatment abroad and are likely to attract many more in the future, an official has claimed.

Hyderabad is the capital city of the state of Andhra Pradesh in India and is already a popular location for conferences and meetings, boasts the nation's second largest film industry, and is a well-known sporting destination.

Increasingly, the city is also welcoming foreign tourists who are keen to benefit from its state-of-the-art hospitals and range of medical specialisations, including alternative medicines, reports.

Sabyasachi Ghosh, director of Andhra Pradesh Tourism, told media representatives that work is underway to integrate medical institutes and tourism stakeholders.

He said: "Lots of international tourists are getting treatment at the corporate hospitals in Hyderabad and the demand is steadily increasing.

"Andhra Pradesh Tourism Development Corporation (APTDC) is the nodal centre to promote and operationalise medical tourism in Hyderabad."
