Rochester, Minn.-based Mayo Clinic is advising on the development, planning and design of a hospital in Bali, a province of Indonesia, The Straits Times reported. 

The new Bali International Hospital, slated to open in mid-2023, is an effort to help Indonesia recoup nearly $7 billion in outbound medical tourism, Bloomberg reported.

"We hope Bali will become a special economic zone for the health sector, and hopefully by then, there will be no more Indonesians traveling overseas to seek medical treatment," Indonesia President Joko Widodo told The Straits Times.

"Mayo Clinic is proud to be advising on the development, planning and design for this new health care facility through Mayo Clinic Global Consulting.  Mayo Clinic is committed to delivering the highest-quality, highest-value care to patients and looks forward to watching this world-class facility’s growth," a Mayo Clinic spokesperson told Becker's.

The Bali hospital held its groundbreaking ceremony Dec. 27 and will offer a range of services, including oncology.

Indonesia plans to build two other international hospitals in Jakarta and Medan.
