Bali is considering the development of medical tourism

The administration of Bali aims to develop the island as a destination for medical tourism in order to boost tourist arrivals and fund free medical care for poor residents.

Considering the huge population of Indonesia and the fact that there are many expats in Bali who go abroad for medical treatment, the administration will build a hospital with international standards. The construction of the hospital will begin early next year and the plan is to finish the hospital before the APEC conference in 2013. The hospital would be built on a plot of three hectares belonging to the provincial administration on Jl By Pass Ngurah Rai Sanur. With a large number of tourists coming to Bali, Bali's governor is optimistic that the hospital would have an international return on investment. The hospital could also accommodate poor patients covered by the free care Bali Mandara.
