Medical tourism or health tourism is a trip to another country with the purpose of treatment. The reasons for this type of tourism are the lack of similar treatment methods, high costs, and the lack of advanced treatment technologies in the country of origin. On the other hand, considering the appropriate medical tariffs in Iran compared to other countries in the region and the provision of medical and nursing services with international standards, a large number of patients are willing to travel to Iran to receive medical services, and this has made our beloved country one of the poles of health tourism in the region .

In this regard, Isfahan khanevadeh Hospital has been able to receive the license to accept international patients in the evaluation of the Ministry of Health, according to its actual and potential capacities and according to its successful and pioneering achievements in the field of modern health services management.
