Foreigners from all over the world travel to Singapore for many reasons, including tourism, education, trade and especially, healthcare. Healthcare in Singapore has a rather impressive history, gaining momentum alongside the country's quick ascent into first-world excellence in a single generation.

If you're looking to travel for your health, then here are three compelling reasons why healthcare in Singapore should be at the top of your list!

  1. The Standard of Healthcare In Singapore is Exceptionally High

Unlike many countries, public healthcare in Singapore maintains such a high level of excellence that the public sector actually sets the standard for the private sector[1].

All healthcare centers in general run on a semi-private system, which pushes them all to achieve the highest standards and compete against each other, not matter whether privately owned or government run. As a result, many countries and their citizens turn to healthcare in Singapore for the best treatment possible.

  1. The Cost of Treatment is Greatly Reduced

While healthcare is free to all of Singapore's citizens thanks to taxes and a mandatory national savings scheme; tourists are still expected to pay the fees.

However, even the full cost of the most expensive medical procedures is still more reasonable then what you would expect to pay on average in many other developed countries.

Private hospitals tend to charge a slightly higher fee than public hospitals in Singapore for the same degree of service, but many foreigners still prefer private hospitals as there are minimal queues to wait in.

The price also depends on your requirements. In a typical Singapore hospital, the wards are divided by class, much like on an airplane flight. The best rooms are comparable to that of a five-star hotel and will charge you accordingly.

  1. Singapore Has a Few World-Renowned Specialty Clinics

Another reason people from far and wide travel for healthcare in Singapore is due to it's reputation for world-class specialists and specialty clinics[2]. You can find reputable clinics for the following specializations and diseases in Singapore:

  • Cancer
  • Sports Injuries
  • Orthopedics
  • Eye Treatment
  • Cardiology
  • Skincare
