“There are six government hospitals and eight private hospitals. We chose government hospitals that have excellent services, such as Prof. Ngoerah Hospital for heart care, Mata Bali Hospital for eye, and Bali Mandara Hospital for cancer,” he said at the HIMSS22 APAC Health Conference & Exhibition here.
Medical tourism services are also available at Bhayangkara Hospital (hyperbaric medicine), Udayana University’s hospital (infectious diseases), and Mangusada Badung Hospital (heart cancer).
Besides government hospitals, the services are also being provided at several private hospitals, such as Siloam Hospital (orthopedics), BIMC Nusa Dua Hospital (cosmetics), and BIMC Kuta Hospital (emergencies).
Prima Medika Hospital (cancer), Bali Royal Hospital (IVF and plastic surgery), Kasih Ibu Saba Hospital (hyperbaric surgery), Kasih Ibu Hospital Denpasar (neurosurgery), and Ramata Hospital (eye care) are also offering the services.
Then, the three clinics offering medical tourism in Bali are Dental 911 for dental care, Penta Medika Clinic for evacuation, and 221 Assist Clinic for evacuation.
In addition, Patrajaya said that currently, as many as five health facilities, especially aesthetic clinics, have applied to become medical tourism service providers in Bali.
Minister of Health Budi Gunadi Sadikin while virtually opening the HIMSS22 APAC Health Conference & Exhibition, also urged hospitals in the province to be at the forefront of providing medical tourism.
Head of the public relations division of Prof. Ngoerah Hospital Dewa Ketut Kresna said that the program is a strategic opportunity to promote the hospital, which was previously named Sanglah Hospital.
“Like what the minister has said, hospitals in Bali are encouraged to have medical tourism (services), and Prof. Ngoerah Hospital itself has readied them, especially heart surgery, maternal and child health, cancer, and aesthetic center services, which are expected to complement medical tourism services in Bali,” Kresna said.
