Germany’s Asklepios Klinik Barmbek tops the 2017 MTQUA Top 10 list of the World’s Best Hospitals for Medical Tourists followed by Clemenceau Medical Centre in Beirut and Fortis Hospital Bannerghatta in Bangalore.

A German hospital is the world’s top hospital for medical tourists, according to medical tourism industry leader Medical Travel Quality Alliance (MTQUA).

Germany’s Asklepios Klinik Barmbek leads the 2017 MTQUA Top 10 list of the World’s Best Hospitals for Medical Tourists followed by Clemenceau Medical Centre in Beirut and Fortis Hospital Bannerghatta in Bangalore.

Three hospitals in South-east Asia make the cut - Gleneagles Hospital Singapore, Prince Court Medical Centre in Kuala Lumpur and Samitivej Hospital in Bangkok.

The MTQUA said of the three hospitals:

“What sets Gleneagles apart from other hospitals is a strong sense of community and a team dedicated to patient care.”

In Kuala Lumpur, “Prince Court Medical Centre provides excellent surgery options for medical travellers. It pays exceptional attention not only to the medical care its doctors and nurses provide but to the details of patient comfort.”

And in Bangkok, “Under the leadership of hospital director Dr. Nithiwat Gijsriurai,  Samitivej Hospital has come into its own as a caring, high quality, doctor-focused community hospital.”

This list of leading hospitals for medical tourism is issued by the Medical Travel Quality Alliance to help patients, hospitals, and medical travel companies better understand the important factors that create an outstanding medical experience for a medical tourist.
