Efforts to Avoid the Drop in Medical Tourism in Jordan

AmmanA sector representative in Amman announced on Tuesday that at the end of this year, Jordan is expected to witness a 25% drop in patients and revenue coming from . “The sector is being affected by the current situation in some Arab countries that are considered major markets for the Kingdom’s medical tourism. We are receiving very few patients from both Libya and Yemen, which are major markets for the sector” Awni Bashir, president of the Private Hospitals Association told The Jordan Times.

The Kingdom’s private hospitals treat about 242,000 patients every year, and revenues reaching some $1 billion. On Tuesday, a committee has discussed the possibility of appointing medical attachés in the country’s embassies. This step would promote the Kingdom as a medical tourism destination and improve this sector. The Jordan Times received a statement from the committee saying that in order to promote tourism in the Kingdom information about the sector will be inserted on the website of the Jordan Tourism Board.

Patients coming to the Kingdom can receive treatment and be provided with the information they need about hospitals and health services in general through a liaison office at Amman’s Queen Alia International Airport built by the committee. Furthermore, foreign patients will have their database and their levels of satisfaction with medical services in Jordan will also be evaluated.
