June 23, 2018 Health and Wellness No Comments Email Email

Asklepios Hospital in Hamburg is the world’s top hospital for medical tourists, according to medical tourism industry leader Medical Travel Quality Alliance MTQUA.

Seven of the Top 10 hospitals are in Asia or the Middle East, and specialize in cardiac surgery, cancer treatment, hip or knee replacement, and treatment for gynecological and other major illnesses.

Clemenceau Medical Center, Beirut, Specialty Hospital, Amman, and Anadolu Medical Center, Istanbul, are ranked second, third and fourth on the Top 10.

The highest ranked Asian hospital, in fifth place, is Samitivej Hospital, Bangkok.

“Asklepios Klinik Barmbek is a superb hospital, recognized in Germany and around the world for its excellence in medical treatment, and today it’s again recognized by MTQUA for the outstanding care services and support it gives to international patients and medical travelers,” said Julie Munro, president of MTQUA, in making the announcement at ITB Berlin, the world’s largest travel trade fair.

Hamburg’s Asklepios Klinik Barmbek has a dedicated and professional team that works with care managers and coordinators from independent medical travel facilitator agencies. These selected agencies work closely with the hospital to ensure proper planning and preparation, in-patient support, and follow up care for every medical traveler, according to MTQUA.

Asklepios management fully supports the international patient team. Throughout the evaluation process, hospital staff have been responsive to addressing patient rights concerns and taking responsibility for achieving the best outcomes for each medical traveler.

Seven of the Top 10 hospitals are in Asia or the Middle East, since most medical travelers come from African, C.I.S. and Asian countries and travel to hospitals in Asia and the Middle East for heart surgery, cancer treatment, hip or knee replacement, and treatment for gynecological and other major illnesses.

Clemenceau Medical Center, Beirut, Specialty Hospital, Amman, and Anadolu Medical Center, Istanbul, are ranked second, third and fourth on the Top 10.

The highest ranked Asian hospital, in fifth place, is Samitivej Hospital, Bangkok.

Carolina Medical Center, a specialty sports and orthopedic hospital in Warsaw, is the only new hospital to make the Top 10 list, at number 10, and is the only other European hospital.

Patients who travel to another country for medical treatment cannot be treated as ordinary patients. They need more and different services and support, for example, in communicating with doctors, nurses and care support workers. They can get a wrong diagnosis, wrong treatment for their disease, inappropriate medication, and a hospital or doctor bill that is much higher than for a local patient with the same treatment.

The hospitals and clinics on the World’s Best Hospitals list give medical tourists the best results for the best price and with the best support and care. Then, when they return home after treatment, they can go about their daily lives without worry that they might have a complication or an infection, discover a breach of confidential medical information, or get an unexpected charge for services on their credit card.

“Each year, this Top 10 list shows how the medical tourism industry is changing,” said Ms. Munro. “More hospitals in more countries are competing for international patients. This kind of competition benefits the medical traveler by bringing a focus on international standards and better quality.”

MTQUA reviews hospitals in Asia, Middle East, Europe and the Americas for excellence in treating and caring for medical tourists from around the world. Medical tourists come from all countries and travel around the world to get the best medical attention they can afford. Some may want to get treatment in a 5-star environment from 5-star doctors; others may care less about the environment but want 5-star treatment and 5-star care appropriate to their needs.

The MTQUA team spends up to three days visiting and interviewing at candidate hospitals. The Selection Panel ranks hospitals based on the quality of medical treatment and on non-clinical factors that affect outcomes and quality of care, including

1. Integrated care management

2. Clear, private, secure communications

3. Clear, transparent prices and fees, outcomes, operations

4. Fair value

5. Verified agents and network partners

6. Dedicated leadership

7. Marketing and operations consistent with health care ethics and values

8. Patient security and safety

9. Cultural support services

10. Social and religious sensitivity
