The Malaga Health Foundation hopes to attract the first tourists before the summer.
It is estimated that the health tourism sector could bring €300 million per year to the province.
Following two years of promotional trips to reach agreements throughout the world, and the launch of its website last year, the Foundation hopes that so-called ‘Health Tourists’ will start to travel to the clinics on the Costa del Sol before the summer season.
Agreements have been reached with Sweden, Germany and Canada for patients to travel to the area for different kinds of treatment.
The President of Malaga Health, Miguel Such, says the aim is to boost the economy in the province by including health amongst the attractions for which the Costa del Sol is known, sun, sand, golf and culture.
A German hospital is reportedly interested in building a centre in the province and there have been discussions with Malaga city and Estepona.
As well as this, the Foundation has signed an agreement with Malaga Business Federation to promote Malaga Health from the premises of those which are interested.
