I don't see anything wrong with developing a hospital with luxurious amenities. However, I hope that businessmen think deeper about this. Instead of investing in concrete infrastructure that requires expensive maintenance and additional costing, I think they should invest more on the expertise of doctors. Why not build a research facility instead? In that way healthcare professionals can come up with ways to advance medical practice. Isn't that the point of being in a hospital --- to hea...

A relative of mine was treated in one of the best private hospitals in the country. I went there a couple of times and what is said in the article is totally correct. I wished I was ill, so I could stay away from the busy work life and rest in a hospital room with 3 star luxury. The healthcare industry is increasingly becoming a very competitive market, so hospitals are trying very hard to stay above the others. There infrastructure is amazing and patient care is also maintained at a remarkable ...
