Ambitious plans afoot for a Costa del Health

MALAGA could become a world-renowned destination for healthcare under ambitious plans unveiled by health chiefs.

A foundation, set up by a group of prominent surgeons, will be used to attract patients to clinics, hospitals and treatment centres on the Costa del Sol.

According to the group, the initiative could help boost Malaga’s tourism industry by €250 million annually in three years, as health tourism becomes increasingly popular.

“We are sitting on an untapped goldmine and we don’t even realise it,” said foundation founder Miguel Such.

“None of us are motivated by money. We are embarking on this project to bring favour to Malaga.

“Health tourism is not being fully taken advantage of in Malaga considering we have the resources to become a world leader in terms of health,” added Such, who predicts the average expense for each incoming patient will be around €10,000.

Among the health centres to have so far signed up to the Malaga health foundation include Xanit International hospital in Benalmadena and Parque San Antonio in Malaga.
