Australian Senator and Minister of Foreign Affairs Bob Carr recently visited Jakarta and Bali and included a visit to Ground Zero in Bali and a tour of the BIMC Hospital in Nusa Dua during the Bali portion of the trip.
The BIMC Hospitals,
with locations in Kuta and Nusa Dua, are Australian-owned and managed medical facilities.
Accompanying Bob Carr were Western Australian Senator Glenn Sterle - Chair of the Senate Legislation Rural, Regional Affairs and Transport Committee and the Australian Ambassador to Indonesia Greg Moriarty.
Bob Carr’s visit to Bali was in connection with his chairmanship of a regional conference of foreign ministers held in Nusa Dua, Bali.
The BIMC Hospitals
is at the forefront of Bali’s campaign to become a medical tourism destination by treating many Australians on an outpatient, emergency and elective procedures.
Bob Carr expressed his pleasant surprise when he was told during his visit that more than 40,000 Australians have been served by BIMC Hospital
during its 15 years history. The Australian Foreign Minister also gratefully acknowledged BIMC Hospital’s
role in treating more than one hundred victims of the Bali bombing more than 10 years ago.
BIMC Hospital Nusa Dua
is lauded as one of the most advanced medical facilities in Indonesia equipped for complex surgeries with three surgical theatres and prides itself with a standard equal to that of modern Australian hospitals. Senator Glenn Sterle confirmed that he was very impressed by the quality of the facility and services. ”I would have no hesitations to allow my kids to go to Bali knowing that such professional medical care is available.”
“We have several milestones to look forward to in the coming months not least the first anniversary of our Nusa Dua hospital in May,” said BIMC
Founder and CEO, Craig Beveridge. “Having received the Foreign Minister, the WA Senator and the Australian Ambassador on April 1st is a top honor for us and our Indonesian counterparts.”
