Medical Tourism in Vietnam

Medical tourism in Vietnam is getting popular in recent years. With the warm tropical weather, many natural hot springs, professional, caring doctors and hardworking healthcare staff. Vietnam is a good destinations for Health tourism.

First with the Vietnamese oversea, they come back the Motherland for holidays, then for dental care, beauty services, recovering after operations… then IVF services… The great services and a good cost really convinced them and their friends and relatives.

I remembered in 2015. A friend of mine from Arizona got food poison during the trip. She got 2 days at Vinmec Hospital in Hanoi and she told me the services and treatment here could compare to Stanford or some famous hospital in States… Beside the good treatment, doctors and helpers could speak fluent English, French, Chinese or Korean… At the reception there is a live band,  her room has and fresh flowers… it created better feeling when people visit hospital and it really changes her mind of hospital in Vietnam.

Beside there are over 1300 public & private hospitals in Vietnam. Some years recently tourists are also coming to Vietnam for medical purposes. Treatments span the full range of medical services, with the most common choices of services including dental care, cosmetic surgery, cardiology intervention and fertility treatment. Some of them come for nursing home services.

According to statistics from the Ho Chi Minh City Department of Tourism, 300,000 foreign tourists came to Vietnam in 2018 for medical purposes, with dental and cosmetic surgery being the top purposes. Affordable healthcare and relatively high medical quality are driving the trend as medical care in Vietnam remains far more affordable than in Singapore, Thailand and Taiwan. According to surveys, Australians and Americans favor dental health care while cosmetic surgery draws South Koreans.

Dentistry costs in Vietnam are three to ten times lower than in other Asian countries, according to the Health Ministry’s Medical Services Administration. The government-run Vietnam Investment Review says that the country’s medical sector grows 18% to 20% every year, and contributed annual income of some US$ 2 billion.

Particularly, Ho Chi Minh City (HCM City) emerges as medical tourism destination of the country due to its fast-growing health services and medical technologies, according to local authorities.
HCM City accounted for 40% of the number of foreign patients. In 2018, the tourism department released a medical tourism guide for Saigon both Vietnamese and English. A total of 10,000 books were delivered to hospitals, hotels and travel agents.

In September 2019, the health department rolled out a mobile app that contains information about health facilities in the city, and the English version of this app is expected to debut in 2020.
Travel companies have also partnered with hospitals to organize medical tours placing heavy emphasis on the low cost and good quality of these hospitals, which is attractive to tourists. The city’s People’s Committee’s plan on medical tourism development for the 2019-25 period calls for expanded emergency medical services for tourists.

To fully set medical tourism as a strong feature of Vietnam tourism, the government must now set up very strict rules regarding medical practices while listing all the medical units (hospitals and clinics) qualified for the handling of international guests. In order to maintain foreign patients’ interest, it is important for all hospitals to invest in better infrastructure and skilled human resources.

Hospitals in Vietnam are divided into two main types, namely, public hospitals and private hospitals. Most Vietnam public hospitals do not meet the international standards with lack of services and equipment and are often overcrowded. Doctors and medical staff working at public hospitals will generally only speak Vietnamese. However, prices of treatments and health consultations in public hospitals are more reasonable.

On the other hand, the standard of private hospitals in Vietnam is excellent. They are staffed with English or French speaking medical doctors or foreign doctors from the USA, France, Japan, Korea etc., so you are no need to worry about language barrier and their facilities and equipment are more modern and adequate than the other.
