According to the Israel’s Health Ministry, revenues from medical tourism in state hospitals doubled in last years.

Revenues from medical tourism in state hospitals were NIS 54 million in 2009, however by 2011, they were 2.2 times higher, at NIS 119 million.

Medical tourism revenues at Rambam Medical Center in Haifa rose from NIS 7 million in 2009 to NIS 18 million in 2011. At Ichilov Hospital in Tel Aviv, the figures were NIS 37 million in 2009 and NIS 84 million in 2011. The results are published at a new report prepared by the Israel’s Health Ministry.

The information in the report is based on only partial reporting by the hospitals. Moreover, the ministry did not collect information on medical tourism from hospitals that are not state-owned.
