The new Islands Hospital in Macau plans to offer services to medical travellers when it opens in 2023. The Islands District Medical Complex, also known as the Islands Hospital, will function as a public hospital but will offer private medical services for medical tourists.
Macao, the Special Administrative Region of the People’s Republic of China, is known for tourism and casinos. It receives 39 million tourists a year, with a population of only 658,000; almost all are from Mainland China.
