Bangalore grows to be the hub of medical tourism in India

Bangalore, the capital of the State of Karnataka, now better known as Silicon Valley of India, has been witnessing major inflow of foreign patients over the past few years. Patients from across the globe have been flocking to the Silicon Valley city, like never before. The reason for the emergence of Bangalore as the hotbed for medical tourism in India, are many.

Apart from being a global outsourcing centre, Bangalore is now the health giver to the world. Medical tourism is a growing phenomenon and is only eight to ten years old in the city. In comparison to other metros such as Chennai and Mumbai, Bangalore caught up later in the race. However, today, the city aims to be the topmost in attracting foreign patients from across the globe.

According to medical experts, one of the major reasons for this is that Bangalore is a well-known brand in the world. Apart from being a knowledge city, it offers the best hospitals, and pleasant weather, to patients coming here for treatment.

Apart from earning reputation as the ˜Silicon Valley of India, Bangalore is also known as the ˜Pub Capital of India, ˜Garden City and so on. Bangalore is full of life and energy, given, the beautiful parks, multiplexes, avenues and historical monuments, not to mention, its pulsating nightlife and a salubrious climate.

Bangalore has been the hub of healthcare since the British era. Currently, it is the centre of attraction due to the presence of large number of major hospitals in the city, and innumerable medical institutes and colleges. The medical experts and professionals are also increasing here by the day.

Majority of the hospitals in Bangalore have capitalized on the growth of floating population, and the growth of the income bracket. Moreover, the holistic health centers in the city have been offering alternate systems of therapy like Art of Living and yoga courses and Ayurvedic therapies, said a source from the Karnataka Government Tourism department.

Bangalore has primarily become the centre of attraction primarily due to the presence of large number of major hospitals in the city, and the innumerable medical institutes and colleges, says Vittal Murthy, Secretary, Kannada Culture Information and Tourism department.
