Hesse: Corona slows down medical tourism: hope for improvement

Frankfurt (dpa/lhe) - After medical tourism in the Frankfurt area suffered heavy losses due to the Corona crisis, the industry is now hoping for improvement. The business was almost brought to a standstill with an emergency stop, said Plamen Staikov, medical director at Sachsenhausen Hospital on Monday. Effects would still be felt, even if the trend was positive. And: "There are certainly many good reasons to visit Frankfurt, medicine is one of them."

Thomas Feda, Managing Director of Frankfurter Tourismus Congress GmbH, explained that demand from abroad for both tourist and medical offers has fallen sharply in the last two years. In order to significantly improve the situation again, however, a lot of staying power is needed. "The medical tourism market was difficult and highly competitive even before the pandemic and the war in Ukraine. That hasn't changed. On the contrary!" Staikov also said.

In order to discuss the current situation and find ways out of the crisis, various experts came together in Frankfurt on Monday for a specialist conference.
