To promote its medical tourism industry Jordan has provided easy consultations and connection agencies to its hospitals; a government run project helps medical tourist find the right hospitals and even offers a free shuttle to hospitals from airports.
Over 50 hospitals in Jordan have been promoting medical tourism, all offering numerous treatments and procedures. Private investors and investments from the government are all putting in extra money for hospitals to improve already existing facilities and expand the industry to bring in more and more money from medical tourists each year. Due to investments, all facilities hold state-of-the-art equipment and up to date techniques still a relatively lost cost. Most patients can expect to save a massive 80% - 90% on their treatment when travelling to Jordan.
Surgeons and doctors in Jordan normally train abroad but, like most destinations, patients should check their doctor’s credentials at the initial consultation before considering treatment. Most doctors can be expected to be world class and experienced.
With such investments underway and so many trained doctors at hand Jordan is an ideal place to consider for any kind of treatment. Jordan’s hospitality and desire to improve its medical tourism industry, coupled with low prices, make it a welcoming place for all patients.
