Medical tourists are not ordinary patients.
Each year, the Top 10 World’s Best Hospitals for Medical Tourists™ celebrates the best
hospitals around the world that go beyond providing excellent treatment of their international patients and
medical tourists. These world’s best hospitals pay attention also to the essential conditions that
help produce the best possible results for their patients.
Medical tourists, more than anyone, have to trust in the hospitals and doctors – and often the
medical travel facilitators – they choose to take care of them as they plan their medical travel, get
diagnosis, treatment, and care, and after they are settled back at home.
Some of the best hospitals in the world may offer the most remarkable treatments and outcomes
but they can fall short in delivering the best results for their patients.
With the help of the Medical Travel Quality Alliance MTQIA, through site visits, meetings with
hospital leaders and department managers, and independent research, here are the hospitals in
2019 that provide excellence in the care of traveling international patients in clinical and non-clinical areas.
