In the article, Sigrid de Mazieres, repeated numbers from a survey by the University Bonn-Rhein-Sieg that stated that 253,000 international patients from 181 countries underwent medical treatment in 2016 in German clinics, and that it can be estimated that around 50% (126,000) travelled intentionally to seek medical treatment.

She also claimed that studies show that Germany ranks in a top five position according to its medical tourism value generated, and great investments are being undertaken to further attract overseas patients.  She gave no source for this ranking.
