Vancouver Company is Featured in Delta Airlines Special Section on Medical Tourism.
Passport Medical appears in February 2012 issue of Delta Sky Magazine
Vancouver, February 28, 2012 — Passport Medical, a Vancouver, British Columbia medical tourism company, announced today that they have contributed to and appear in an article in the most recent issue of Delta Sky Magazine.
The section, titled “Need Health Care Will Travel,” outlines patient need for information and assistance with medical procedures done internationally. Large numbers of citizens of Canada and the US are now traveling overseas to have medical procedures at healthcare facilities accredited by international bodies such as The Joint Commission International which ensures high international standards. The benefit to patients is that procedures cost considerably less than the amount that would be charged at home for equivalent treatments. From dental to fertility treatments, patients are now realizing that world-class care can be accessed at dramatically reduced prices.
“As leaders in our field, we know why people are drawn overseas to have medical procedures done,” said Mark Semple, president of Passport Medical. “Whether it’s cost savings for elective procedures, more timely access for procedures like joint replacement or spine surgery, or access to procedures not available in Canada, people are realizing that they have options. As mentioned in the magazine, my wife and I owe an overseas fertility clinic for the birth of our son, and we saved seven thousand dollars.”
As a recent winner of a global award in medical tourism, the opportunity to give the company’s position of medical tourism to the airline’s global readership was just too important to pass up. “Delta Sky Magazine’s coverage of this issue shows the increasing prominence of the topic and let people see that medical tourism can be a viable alternative,” said Semple.
