Medical tourism in Jordan goes up by 10pc

April 27 - Medical tourism in Jordan grew by 10 per cent last year, said the Private Hospitals Association (PHA) on Sunday. According to the details, 220,000 patients from around the world got treated in Jordan’s private hospitals, up from 200,000 in 2008. The highest number of foreign patients last year was represented by Iraqis followed by Palestinians and Saudi Arabians.
"The quality and competitiveness of healthcare in Jordan have made the country an attractive destination for foreigners seeking advanced treatments that are unavailable or unaffordable in their home countries," said PHA President Fawzi Hammouri during a press conference on Sunday.  Most foreign patients coming to Jordan are looking to get treated for heart disease and cancer, he added.
Medical tourism is one of the major contributions to Jordan’s economy and brings in revenues that hit the $1 billion mark annually.
