Medical tourism has been on a steady incline for the past few years now. And with more individuals around the world opting to fly overseas for treatments, medical facilities across the world are trying their best to improve their healthcare standards as well as the quality of care meted out to medical tourists. Several organizations also felicitate the best facilities with prestigious awards on a regular basis for the same purpose.
The medical tourism industry in India is experiencing a boom, with many hospitals and healthcare centers in the country starting to focus on providing excellent medical treatments at affordable prices to medical tourists from around the world. In this regard, India can add another feather to its medical tourism hat. The International Medical Travel Journal in Britain has awarded the Hyderabad based Apollo Health City the much coveted international medical tourism award for its excellent customer service.
