Germany’s sound medical treatment is bringing thousands of Saudis to the country to benefit from medical services in hospitals, in addition to patients who come on the expense of the state, according to Osama Shobokshi, Saudi ambassador to Germany. The ambassador’s statement came as part of a lecture the diplomat gave in Stuttgart, under the title “Medical Tourism in Germany.”
With over 10,000 Saudis visiting the country each year, one of the reasons that make Germany so attractive not only for the Kingdom’s citizens, but worldwide, is because they provide quality services in addition to the presence of specialists in health care and medical tourism, Shobokshi said.
He also pointed out that there is a large number of qualified doctors who have the ability to diagnose and establish medical infrastructure as well as specialized clinics.
As part of his lecture, he reviewed the most important characteristics of health care in Germany, which provides innovative medical services in a number of fields, such as preventive medicine and rehabilitation. He commended the health and natural climate, healing water, natural remedies and beautiful scenery of Germany which help patients heal quicker.
The ambassador also talked about the distinguished relations between Germany and Saudi Arabia and their cooperation in all fields, describing these relations as a true partnership.
