SEOUL, March 31 (Yonhap) -- The Seoul metropolitan government said Wednesday it has selected 50 hospitals to be its partners in marketing medical tours.

The 50 hospitals, all located in Seoul, have been selected for their competence in physical examination, plastic surgery, dermatology, dental practice, and oriental medicine, city government officials said.

The designation is a follow-up to the capital city's plan this year to turn these five fields into South Korea's representative medical tours that combine treatment with sightseeing for foreigners.

Seoul will go on overseas promotion of the tours with the selected hospitals after a briefing session in April, officials said.

To assist the tourists, Seoul operates Medical Tourism Information Centers in Seoul and Incheon to provide general information on medical services and professional counseling.
