Following the success of the flagship Patients Beyond Borders Singapore Edition, published in July 2007, the second edition has now been released. This 250-page guidebook features a fully updated and revised in-depth overview of Singapore's hospitals and clinics serving international patients and now includes 16 pages of color inserts showcasing Singapore's world-class facilities and attractions. Considered one of the world’s top medical travel destinations, Singapore attracts more than 410,000 international patients to its hospitals and treatment centers and expects that number to grow to one million by 2012. The country boasts 13 JCI-accredited healthcare facilities, and its healthcare system was ranked the best in Asia and sixth best in the world by the World Health Organization (the US was ranked 36th). Singapore's 35 international clinics and hospitals offer nearly every imaginable medical procedure at a 30 to 60 percent saving over U.S. prices. This complete guide contains detailed profiles of each of the country's hospitals and clinics serving international patients and includes extensive coverage of the acclaimed Centers of Excellence, specialties and super-specialties, patient liaison services, accommodation options, travel destinations, and more.
