Slow takeoff for local med tourism

AMID the opening of new hospitals in Cebu equipped with advanced medical technologies, the Cebu Health and Wellness Council (CHWC) feels the province has not fully taken advantage of the growing global medical tourism market.

“We are still far from the likes of Bangkok, and Singapore,” said CHWC chairman engineer Oscar Tuason at the sidelines of the groundbreaking of Mactan Doctors medical arts building last week. “We tried to parallel our services with them, but the difference is that we could not get support from our own local government.”
