Despite the international healthcare industry's rapid growth, little research exists about medical hotels. To fill this gap, this study identifies international patients' possible outcomes of staying in a medical hotel and investigates their intention formation by considering attitudes and desires as well as the perceived outcome's moderating impact. A qualitative approach identifies the possible outcomes of staying in a medical hotel, which can be distinctive from common medical/healthcare clinics, as perceived by international medical customers. Confirmatory factor analysis verifies a four-factor structure of the perceived outcome model (financial saving, convenience, medical service, and hospitality product). Structural equation modeling reveals that attitudes, desires, and intention significantly associate, and desires act as a mediator. Additionally, a metric invariance test shows that convenience, medical-service, and hospitality-product factors of the perceived outcomes significantly moderate forming intentions. Study results help medical hotel operators create effective strategies to attract more international tourists.
