New hospital-hotel partnership to boost medical tourism
A new partnership between the Courtyard by Marriott Bali and Indonesia’s BIMC Hospital Group has opened up a range of medical tourism packages and services aimed at tourists in Bali. Dental care, advanced dialysis treatments and surgical and non-surgical cosmetic procedures are some of the services on offer at the new BIMC Hospital in the resort of Nusa Dua. These are followed by aftercare services such as visits by nurses to the hotel.
Staff training and planning took place ahead of the opening of the hospital, so as to provide “the best comfort and care the moment the guest returns to the resort from (his/her) medical procedure”, according to the hotel’s general manager Jeff Tyler. He added that the hotel had “carefully looked at services that aid recuperation such as special diet and nutrition, and unique spa and wellness programs” and ensured that the property was wheelchair friendly.
