UAE Could Be Medical Tourism Hub

A recent report released by Alpen Capital on the health care industry in the GCC said the health care sector has been growing quickly and there will be important changes in the quality of its infrastructure. Gulf News reader Faruk Bhagani, who grew up in Houston, said that while he was living in the US he met a lot of people, especially in the wealthier set, who traveled from the GCC and other parts of Asia for specialized medical care.

Mr. Bhagani said many established health care institutes in the US are planning to set up facilities in the UAE because of its key geographical location.  Bhangani said that while North American and European countries have an edge, the UAE could become a medical hub for the region.  “If the UAE brings in the right amount of care in delivering medical treatments, it could soon be the country people would prefer to travel to, instead of Thailand or other Far Eastern countries”.
