Bahamian healthcare facilities are likely to enter into joint ventures and partnerships with overseas providers in a bid to develop a medical tourism sector, the minister of tourism has indicated, with the industry targeting profitable niche markets seen as having long-term sustainability.

Vincent Vanderpool-Wallace told Tribune Business that it was the Bahamian medical/healthcare industry, and professional bodies such as the Medical Association of the Bahamas (MAB), that were "very enthusiastic about developing this" and driving the effort to position this nation as a premier medical tourism destination.
