Halal Friendly Services for Healthcare Visitors in Singapore from the Middle East

An increasing number of people from the Middle East are travelling for Healthcare to Singapore, and Crescentrating is now expanding its services to cater to this segment of travellers.

Crescentrating has just announced that it is partnering with Wellcare Medical & Executive Concierge Services to offer Halal Friendly Travel & Concierge Services for Muslim Healthcare visitors to Singapore.

With Singapore Hospitals already equipped to take care of the specific needs of the Halal conscious visitors, this initiative is expected to further boost Singapore as a preferred destination for those seeking specific treatment or general healthcare services from these regions.

“This is a logical extension to the services that we have already launched. With more and more Muslims travelling not just for leisure and business but also for Healthcare, we wanted to extend Halal Friendly Travel services for these travellers as well” said Fazal Bahardeen, CEO of Crescentrating. “Our goal is to provide a wide range of services covering all aspects for the Halal conscious travellers, so that they can travel with peace of mind, whether for leisure, business or healthcare” added Fazal

Beyond providing medical related information as well as liaising with hospitals and doctors, the services will ensure that the visitors’ Halal related requirements are taken into account during their stay in Singapore. It will also promote packages that will combine general health screening services with holidays to Singapore.

Wellcare has been a Healthcare concierge services provider, for well over 3 years. “Singapore is becoming a popular destination for visitors from Middle East, South East Asia and South Asia seeking high quality healthcare. Our experiences with visitors from these regions fits very well with Crescentrating’s focus on Halal friendly services for travellers” said Borhan Saini, Managing Director of Wellcare. “Our goal is to provide one-stop and personalized services to healthcare visitors to Singapore” added Borhan.

Mr Sheikh Mohammed Saleem from the UAE-Abu Dhabi shared his satisfactions during the time in Singapore for his father’s cancer treatment, “I am very satisfied with the one stop service Wellcare had provided us with. We knew little about Singapore and with the provision of Wellcare’s extended services (aligning with our requests) to ensure our religious needs apart from the other needs were being aided, nothing went wrong. From accommodation to Halal meals, right up to the smallest details such as, information on the whereabouts of the prayer rooms were all being taken care of. I will, with no qualms, spread word of mouth and refer Wellcare to my family and relatives, friends and acquaintances.” 

“Crescentrating will continue to work with other partners to cover all aspects of Healthcare travellers” added Fazal.
