Already one of the world’s most popular tourist spots, Bali is now aiming one step further to become a prominent medical tourism destination.
In doing so, the Bali provincial administration is now constructing a new hospital that will be equipped with world-class facilities in Sanur. The administration has provided Rp 199 billion (US$14.95 million) of its annual budget for the hospital’s construction.
Bali Health Agency head I Wayan Suarjaya said construction of the hospital had begun last year and was targeted for completion this year. The new Bali Mandara Hospital is being built on a 2.95-hectare plot of land in Sanur and will be able to accommodate 176 inpatients.
Suarjaya said the hospital would be equipped with high-standard facilities, including for bariatric surgery. “So, people can get liposuction and plastic surgery here in Bali,” he said.
