Health Tourism Prospects of Kerala
Kerala is all set for a leap in medical tourism. More and more hospitals are joining hands with the tourism industry to benefit their services. The high priority for health in Kerala is bound to make this relatively new aspect of tourism into a multi crore industry in future. Major hospitals are joining hands with the govt in promoting medical tourism. Kerala is ideally suited for medical tourism because of its moderate weather throughout the year, advanced hospitals with world class facilities, renowned doctors specialized in major disciplines, trained para medical staff and technicians and international connectivity. Besides, Kerala also enjoys definite advantages such as the high standard of hygiene that is maintained, the already well developed tourism industry with its high quality resorts and hotels, competitive costs for packages of medical treatment, and ideal locations for a relaxing holiday. The tourism department has played a pioneering role in promoting Kerala as a major destination in medical tourism in the international market.
