4. Singapore

Singapore has one of the most sophisticated health care systems in the world, especially for cancer treatment. As many as 610,000 medical tourists visited the country in 2012, mostly from Indonesia, according to Patients Beyond Borders. That makes the country the fourth-most visited place for medical tourists. Singapore has 22 facilities certified by Joint Commission International, the U.S.-based quality and safety accrediting organization. That's 14 more than all of neighboring Malaysia.
