“To meet the rising demand, the hospital will soon open two examination rooms to exclusively serve foreign patients.” It also plans to build a new 20-storey building to provide health checks and treatment for foreign patients. Cho Ray Hospital and FV Hospital get around 1,200 and 20,000 foreign patients a year. Huynh Nguyen Loc, Director of the HCM City Institute of Traditional Medicine, said his hospital got thousands of tourists from the US and Europe who combine travel with treatment or come for traditional medicine courses. "Some foreign firms sell packages for 10,000 USD, which include medical courses at our institute, accommodation, meals, and tours," Loc said. “Domestic travel firms have failed to explore cooperation opportunities to serve these medical tourists who are willing to pay high costs.” Travel firms said medical tourism had yet to achieve a brand of reliability in terms of both quality of treatment and patients’ trust. Qualified hospitals and clinics needed to get international accreditation and certification to gain patients’ trust that they would get quality medical care, Phan Dinh Hue, Director of Viet Circle Travel and Service Co. Ltd, said. Experts said there should be efficient marketing and promotion programmes for medical tourism to attract more foreigners. The Department of Health last Friday signed a cooperation agreement with the Department of Tourism to develop five types of medical tourism related to dental treatment, traditional medicine, cosmetic surgery, general health consultation and check-ups, and diagnosis of certain diseases such as heart diseases and cancer.
