NASSAU, Bahamas – World-class healthcare, personalized service and huge cost savings over most U.S. prices are just some of the reasons that thousands of Americans travel to the Caribbean and Latin America each year for their medical and dental needs. Through a special advertising supplement in its October 15 issue, Newsweek aims to bring light to the explosive growth of the medical tourism industry and spotlight innovative healthcare organizations that are catering to the discerning needs of their American patients. Bahamas Medical Center, a full-service hospital in Nassau, Bahamas, is proud to announce its participation in Newsweek’s Global Medical Tourism Showcase for pioneering efforts to create a better patient experience for its U.S. medical tourists.

Despite living in the digital age with access to endless amounts of information, many Americans are simply unaware that high-quality, affordable healthcare exists beyond U.S. borders. Newsweek had the foresight to showcase some of the leading international hospitals and healthcare organizations, like the Bahamas Medical Center that are making a difference in the medical tourism industry. With average savings of 50 to 80 percent of typical U.S. prices on medical and dental procedures, Americans need to be informed and educated about the countless benefits associated with international healthcare and the many excellent destinations available for planning a medical vacation.

 

“We are thrilled to be part of Newsweek’s special issue highlighting international healthcare organizations that are leading the way in medical tourism,” said Barry Rassin, President of the Bahamas Medical Center. “We understand that Americans have high-expectations when it comes to their medical care. At the Bahamas Medical Center, our state-of-the-art facilities cater to our international patients by providing access to affordable, high-quality medical services from our world-renowned specialists. Many of our American patients experience significant savings as compared to U.S. prices. With the money they save, they can often extend their stay and enjoy a tropical island vacation in the stunning beauty of The Bahamas.”

 

Newsweek’s special supplement will also feature an article by Patrick Goodness, CEO of The Goodness Company, a world-renowned marketing agency specializing in global medical tourism. In Goodness’ article entitled, “The Future of American Healthcare Will be Found in the Caribbean and Latin America,” Goodness highlights the Bahamas Medical Center as a leading international hospital that is advancing the medical tourism industry. Goodness explains that American patients who have sought medical care internationally often find that the quality of the healthcare they receive in foreign hospitals meets or exceeds the quality of healthcare they have received in the U.S.

 

Truly attentive, warm and personalized care is what sets these international medical and dental centers apart from their American competitors. From providing personalized concierge service to coordinating all aspects of a patient’s visit, the doctors and staff members of these innovative healthcare organizations pride themselves on understanding the needs of their international patients and providing them with a level of care that rivals any leading medical facility in the U.S.
