Iceland health care facility specialising in medical tourism to be renovated
Renovation of a health care centre at the Asbru Enterprise Park in Keflavik, Iceland, specialising in medical tourism, is set to commence in the second quarter of 2010.
Iceland´s Asbru Enterprise Park is expected to have extensive renovations to an ex-NATO hospital based on the enterprise park’s site. The hospital specialising in medical advancements such as cosmetic surgery, fat-removal and joint replacements will contain three operating theatres, 35 hospital beds and all together have the ability of treating up to 4,000 patients per year.
As the location for the health care facility is next to Keflavik International Airport, the area holds a vast knowledge and already strong experience of tourism. It is also understood that up to 300 new jobs will be established by the renovation of the health care facility and its related services.
“It is important for us to receive an injection into the economy at this difficult time and also a pleasure to note that the timing of the venture is firmly on track. Hundreds of new jobs will be created, there are vast tourism-related possibilities, and new and related educational opportunities will arise at Keilir, the Atlantic Centre for Excellence, which is situated near the hospital,” stated Arni Sigfusson, Mayor of Reykjanesbaer.
An expected 3.5 billion ISK per year is believed to be made from revenues in foreign currencies. This rise medical tourism will provide a precious source of income for Iceland and the Icelandic people.
