President Hopes Indonesian Citizens Will No Longer Go For Treatment Overseas
According to the Head of State, every year there are approximately two million Indonesians who go abroad to get health services.
A number of destination countries include Singapore, Malaysia, Japan, the United States, and other places.
At least the state lost Rp 97 trillion because many Indonesians went for treatment abroad so that the foreign exchange issued by the state was wasted.
There is Tourism Potential
Minister of State-Owned Enterprises (BUMN) Erick Thohir said the presence of the international hospital would help Bali have new tourism potential.
Erick Thohir sees that so far the domestic potential for health tourism is very high.
Erick said the health ecosystem was the key to economic resilience after the Covid-19 pandemic. Currently, the Ministry has consolidated state-owned companies operating in the medical field in one health cluster.
SOE Minister Erick Thohir also in his report said that this international hospital has two functions;
- Helping Bali to have new tourism and health tourism
- This hospital is also expected to be able to support health services in the future for investors whose workers or professionals are in Indonesia.
Investors interpret their investment not only in the form of business and money but also they want to ensure their health is guaranteed, international health standards for their workers or professionals in Indonesia. Therefore, it is very important that we build this health platform in Bali.
International Standard Health Service
International Hospital Bali in collaboration with the United States Mayo Clinic will later serve various types of treatment, including cancer.
With the construction of the Bali International Hospital in Sanur, it will also open the development of health-based tourism. The reason is, not only Indonesians who will later seek treatment at International Hospital Bali, but also people from abroad.
The Ministry of SOEs succeeded in merging Bio Farma as a Holding Company. This holding oversees Kimia Farma, Indo Farma, and hospitals under BUMN, such as Pertamina Hospital, Pelni Hospital. In this health and holding ecosystem, Bio Farma will be the leader of the holding.
Bio Farma has opened up new opportunities in health development, such as health services and vaccinations.
