Medical Tourism

Mabuhay! The Philippines welcomes you to its 7, 107 islands of wellness and healing. With government institutions and private sector partners continuing to develop and promote the country’s medical travel and tourism industry, the Philippines has made great strides in globally positioning the country as the heart of Asia, combining modern technology and international standards in healthcare with Philippine culture and tradition, highlighting the warmth of the Filipino people.


Why the Philippines is More Fun for Wellness and Healing?

Heartfelt Hospitality. At the core of the Philippines’ brand of healthcare is the warmth, openness, sincere compassion and cheerfulness of its people. Filipino health practitioners are experts not only at making sure that medical needs are met, but also at going the extra mile to care for their patients, an attitude that is deeply rooted in its culture and tradition.

Value for Money. The Philippines is a value-for-money destination, with medical treatment rates known to be more than 50% lower than costs in the United States and Europe. Treatments offered by leading healthcare providers are at par with the world’s most prestigious medical hubs. Health professionals do not just offer their expertise and interventions – they spend quality time with their patients. It is this kind of patient care, sought after globally, that brings about holistic healing.

Heartfelt Hospitality
Competent, Culturally Sensitive, Caring and Compassionate

Competent, Culturally Sensitive, Caring and Compassionate. The country’s health professionals are highly-skilled and culturally sensitive – from doctors and dentists to nurses and caregivers. This is why Filipino health practitioners are among the most sought-after globally. Many Filipino doctors have received the best medical education from top institutions in the world – USA, Europe, and Australia. They have undergone rigid and extensive specialty and sub-specialty training, and are duly-licensed or certified in the Philippines and even internationally. Exposed to years of experience in various settings, Filipino health professionals are equipped to address a range of health needs and are motivated to foster full recovery. Concierge services are available to help put together tailor-made health holidays and wellness packages for the most discerning of medical travelers and tourists. Services include liaising with healthcare providers, arranging accommodation and transportation requirements, and putting together post treatment getaways in the Philippines, from fun activities to quiet retreats to complete the wellness and healing process.

World-Class Facilities. In the Philippines, the leading hospitals are internationally accredited by the Joint Commission International (JC/), Accreditation Canada (AC/), UK Trent and several other prestigious accreditation bodies. State-of-the-art facilities and cutting-edge diagnostic and treatment devices, combined with Filipino doctors’ technical skills and intuitiveness, guarantee excellent healthcare delivery with emphasis on patient safety and quality of care.

Ease of Communication. Communication between patients and health providers is the cornerstone of healthcare delivery. As the world’s third largest English-speaking nation, communication is never a problem, in any given area in the Philippines. There are no barriers to conveying health needs and receiving salient information, from the time a medical tourist arrives in the country until the time he or she is ready to make the journey home. Coordinating the various aspects of a medical journey is easy and stress-free.

Healthcare on Demand

Healthcare on Demand. In the Philippines, medical care is available on demand. With less time spent waiting for medical treatment, there is more time for healing and recuperation and a faster road to recovery.

Ultimate Holiday Destination for Rest, Recreation and Reinvigoration. The healing of the spirit is as important to the well-being of a patient as is the healing of the body. This is where the Philippines reigns supreme. Its 7, 107 tropical islands offer endless possibilities for unique health holidays and fun travel experiences that clear the mind, reinvigorate the body, and uplift the spirit: from great shopping and superb entertainment to delightful beach retreats; refreshing island-hopping adventures to charming cultural encounters; experiencing wellness zones to delectable food trips all accompanied with the nurturing nature of the healthcare professionals and the friendliness of the locals.
