New Zealand has beautiful locations, long coastlines, dense forests, lovely landscapes and modern cities, perfect surroundings for patients seeking excellent medical care and a gorgeous environment to enjoy before, during and after treatment.

The popularity of health care in New Zealand is on the rise. It offers world class, very sophisticated health care infrastructure. The cost of medical care is significantly cheaper in New Zealand than in the UK or USA, it has a strong developed economy and the cultural similarities with Europe and North America make it an easy destination for the Western patient. New Zealand is one of the safest countries in the world and only a 12 hour direct flight from the west coast of North America.

New Zealand has been providing high quality treatment at significantly lower costs than the US or UK to its own citizens for a while now. The quality of medical care offered in New Zealand is equal, if not greater, to medical care in Europe or in the US. New Zealand’s surgical costs are around 15% to 20% less than the cost of the same surgical procedure in the USA. For example a heart bypass surgery performed at a hospital in New Zealand costs $USD 25,000 against $USD 125,000 in USA. A hip replacement operation at a hospital in New Zealand costs around $USD 15,000 compared with $USD 50,000 in USA. It is estimated that the number of overseas patients choosing to have surgery at a clinic or private hospital in New Zealand is expected to reach 20,000 by 2020.

The reason for this cost benefit is due to the dual medical system in the country. One is a public system free for all citizens and the other a private for those who are willing to pay and refuse to wait. Tipically, a good private hospital in New Zealand is internationally accredited and provides state-of-the-art facilities and infrastructure.

Post procedure recovery and convalescence is also a soothing experience in New Zealand. Patients can relax, recuperate and enjoy the beauty of New Zealand. Many private hospitals provide hotel-style rooms for medical tourists and uphold national standards to make sure foreign patients receive no compromise in quality. There are numerous spas and relaxing facilities to help patients make their stay memorable.
