Iran aims to boost medical tourism

 

Iran wants to increase its number of medical tourists; the country already enjoys 85,000 patients yearly for medical tourism and wants to improve that. One of the main focuses of medical tourism in Iran is eye surgeries. The country enjoys several facilities around the country that offer quality services for all and also offer services for free to the needy. The main eye hospitals in Tehran are the Noor and Negah facilities. 
These hospitals are designed in a way to offer complete services to patients from examination to surgery, catering to all the needs of the patient. At an inauguration ceremony for a new clinic at the Noor hospital Iran's Vice President talked about the country's plans to boost tourism in this sector and he also said visas are no longer an issue. "A new workgroup will be formed to plan for increasing our potentials in medical tourism in the next few years. More effort should be done on the internet to make precise data about our facilities available for those who plan to come to Iran for treatment," VP and Head of Cultural Heritage Organization, Mohammad Ali Najafi said. The hospital itself is improving in quality and increasing in size, this is to remain attractive to patients and possibly gain more medical tourists. Director of the Hospital, Dr. Khosro Heydari, "We perform all modern eye surgeries offered anywhere else in the world with more competitive prices usually several times less. We enjoy competent surgeons and up to date equipment. Some of our surgeons are renowned worldwide, we have enjoyed over 10,500 patients from outside of Iran coming to our hospital since its start." "The Noor hospital started work 20 years ago, now we felt the need to start a clinic to separate the surgeries from examinations as the hospital was becoming crowded. As we value the quality of services offered and waiting times," Member of the board, Dr. Seyed Mohammad Miraftab added. But this is not all this facility offers, it has made trailers that are complete mobile hospitals to offer services to patients in small towns around Iran, for free. Till now surgeons have traveled with these mobile centers to seven provinces offering free of charge services for the poor.
