Where to Stay in Trivandrum?
Jubilee Animation Centre in Kovalam Jn. for Stay
Health (Medical Tourism) India is a rapidly growing industry in developing countries including India. Medical tourism is a multi-billion dollar industry promoted by governments and the medical and tourism industries. The corporate boom in medical care, India is increasingly seen as the favored destination for “medical tourists” to seek treatment that is cheaper than in their home countries. Medical tourism, where patients travel overseas for operations, has grown rapidly in the past decade.
Patients who travel abroad for medical treatment do so for a variety of reasons. The upper class from developing countries seeks treatments not available in their own countries. Thus private hospitals in India are seeing an influx of patients from the Gulf, Far East and the West. Patients from the United States seek treatments that cost five to 10 times in their own country. And as public-funded health insurance is unable to cope with the rising demands of an increasingly aging population, patients from countries such as the United Kingdom and Canada also travel to India to bypass the huge waiting period for many routine procedures.
The extra revenue from medical tourism could benefit healthcare in India if it were taxed adequately to support public health. The income generated from this booming industry will have a trickle-down effect for the countries millions of poor.
ENTSurgeries performed as part of Medical Tourism are mainly Cosmetic Surgery of Nose, Sleep Apnea Surgery and Micro Ear Surgery. To find an affordable accommodation in Trivandrum, the Church guest house, JubileeAnimationCentre is located in the Kovalam Beach 6-7 Km from the Hospital.
