The article reports that medical tourists went to Thailand, producing lots of business for two rival hospital companies. Bangkok has been turned into a mecca of medical tourism by foreigners looking for inexpensive knee replacements, heart surgery or 64-slice CT scans.

Bangkok Dusit Medical Services is operated by a septuagenarian who is also busy building a fast-growing Thai airline.
