Health Tourism has been in existence for centuries. Even in ancient times, people would travel to far off lands looking for better and more effective cures that were not available in their own country. Today the catalysts for traveling to seek medical procedures in other countries include lengthy wait times and escalating healthcare costs.

In Canada, we tend to blame politics and our politicians for the state of our over burdened healthcare system. While it is true that there is wastage and inefficiency in the system the real cause of our healthcare dilemma is that we enjoy unprecedented advances in medical and pharmaceutical care and therefore live longer. This results in greater costs and longer wait times for an ever increasing aging population.

In the US market driven healthcare system, patients benefit from the same advances in medical and pharmaceutical care. However due to the cost of 3rd party providers and a vigorous insurance and legal system, the massive financial burden falls on the aging population. For citizens of the US it is not the wait times as much as the prohibitive costs that have patients looking for safe and affordable healthcare alternatives.

This dilemma is not just a North American issue; most countries that support universal health care programs are in the same predicament. As part of a government program, in 2006 over 100,000 British patients traveled to India to have general, cosmetic and elective surgeries preformed.

Our combined goal is to provide the best quality healthcare in the shortest available time at the most affordable price to all North American patients.
