Abstract:     
This study presents a structure-conduct-performance analysis of the 17 Singaporean hospitals that are engaged in the medical tourism industry. Heart bypass surgery would cost an American patient US$ 70,000 to US$ 133,000 in the United States, but would only cost US$ 16,300 in a high-tech hospital in Singapore using Western-trained surgeons. The price differential is very important to patients traveling from the United States to Singapore.
