Healthcare in general, and healthcare tourism, are gaining huge momentum in today’s more health-conscious society with a significant number of health tourists seeking healthcare outside their country of residence. This trend was driven by increasing healthcare costs in some countries, number of uninsured patients, waiting time for medical care, the emergence of new technology including the internet which has facilitated travel, health marketing, and increased people’s health expectations.
The Kingdom of Bahrain is a country uniquely equipped to adapt to this rising trend and has the sufficient resources to cater to the number of patients coming from abroad seeking the offered healthcare services. Since the prices are competitive, services are offered at a comparable and even in better quality compared to other regions.
LINKMEDICARE, through its affiliation, and regional and international network partners, and because of its advanced IT and management structure will be positioned as a central hub for the Kingdom of Bahrain health tourism initiative.
