Singapore Medical Tourism

Singapore Medical Tourism draws medical tourists with world class medical infrastructure & English speaking staff

An ex-British colony, Singapore is an island city/nation located at the southern tip of the Malay Peninsula, south of the Malaysian border. It spans only 424 sq. miles(683 km2). Its small size (it’s about 3.5 times the size of Washington, DC) allows for quick and easy travel throughout the country. Due to it being a former colony and a multicultural nation (Chinese make up 77% of the population, East Indians 8%, Malays 14%), Singapore offers an amalgamation of culture, cuisine, architecture, religion, language, and art.

Subsequent to its independence, Singapore became one of the most prosperous nations with strong international trading ties. For example, its GDP is on par with prosperous European nations.

Singapore Medical Tourism Fame

Although medical care is more expensive than India and Thailand (it is still more than 50% cheaper than the U.S.), Singapore draws medical tourists with its world-class and familiar medical infrastructure, cleanliness, order, and English speaking medical staff. Also, Singapore´s outside environment is in stark contrast with the poverty and lack of development in India, and the pollution and chaos of Bangkok, which in turn mitigates foreigners´ feelings of culture shock.

The Joint Commission International has accredited 15 hospitals and medical centers in Singapore, which offer a variety of services from dental, orthopedics, urology, dermatology, cardiology, sports medicine, ophthalmology, endocrinology, and cosmetic procedures to alternative medicines such as traditional Chinese medicine that includes acupuncture and herbal remedies.
