Vaidam, the online health and treatment discovery platform which connects travellers to accredited hospitals, specialists and doctors today announced its partnership with OYO, India’s largest hospitality company with presence in over 200 cities, to extend standardized and affordable accommodation to international medical travellers coming to India for treatment.
OYO will be Vaidam’s preferred accommodation partner for these travellers for whom quality spaces at an affordable cost are an essential prerequisite while traveling to India for several weeks for treatments and routine check-ups. Despite high quality affordable healthcare, India’s medical tourism industry remains largely fragmented with various loopholes in offering quality healthcare as well as better everyday experiences right from assistance with accommodation to tips on living in India.
“We expect that our partnership with OYO will boost the inflow of medical travellers who would experience a hassle-free and comfortable stay in the country. In a short period of time OYO has built a solid network of branded hotels across India and we hope to gain from their experience in offering the best, most affordable rooms to patients traveling for treatment or routine check-ups”, said Pankaj Chandna, Co-Founder, Vaidam.
OYO revolutionized the fragmented and legacy-driven budget hospitality space in India by enabling standardization of services, amenities and in-room experience. Every OYO comes with a promise of air-conditioned, spacious rooms, free WiFi, complimentary breakfast and round the clock customer care.
The announcement comes weeks prior to India getting set to roll out its first medical and wellness tourism policy on June 21, The World Yoga Day.
