Here is the India’s Healthcare story (in quotes) at Advantage Healthcare India 2016.

“We need to focus on quality, investment to build systems for better patient care and continue to remain globally competitive in the area of medical value travel…it is indeed an opportune moment in the Indian healthcare sector story to be talking about medical value travel as this is in many ways is a validation of the fact that India has moved ahead. Indian healthcare had been constantly improving and globally acknowledged, however given the scenario, it is both a time for celebration and introspection. Celebration as the sector has done well and is continuously striving to do well, introspection because there is still a lot to do, as there is a huge opportunity still to be tapped.”

“India is one country which offers to everyone a holistic health approach, and apart from excellent infrastructure, competent doctors and nursing system in its hospital care, it also offers wellness through Indian traditional medicine or AYUSH as more popularly known, which is an added strength that perhaps only India has globally. He emphasised that, India not only transplants hearts but has a big heart as well, reflected by its warmth, compassion, rich culture and tradition, that it embraces on its visitors and addition to it our ability to communicate completes the picture of success,”- C K Mishra, Secretary, Ministry of Health & Family Welfare, Govt. of India.
