The 4th Annual WMT&GHC Announces the Tourism Authority of Thailand as a Silver Sponsor


The 4th Annual World Medical Tourism & Global Health Congress is pleased to announce the Tourism Authority of Thailand as a silver sponsor at the conference held in Chicago on October 25-28th, 2011.

West Palm Beach, FL, September 17, 2011 --(PR.com)-- Thailand is leading Asia as a medical tourism destination and medical tourism in Thailand is booming. The number of medical tourists that seek care in Thailand has been steadily increasing since the early 2000's. This has resulted in the country taking its place on the top of the global medical tourism market. There are approximately 400 hospitals in Thailand offering advance healthcare services. The country takes pride in having the largest private hospital in Asia, as well as having the first Asian hospital to receive the ISO 9001 certification and JCI accreditation. To date, 14 hospitals in Thailand have been accredited by the JCI. Leading the list are the Bumrungrad International Hospital, Bangkok Hospital Group, and Samitivej Hospitals. These hospitals are widely becoming renowned globally. They are known to cater mostly to foreign patients and have been actively seeking medical tourists since 2004 or earlier.

This is the one event per year where Employers, Self Funded Health Plans, Insurance Companies, and Medical Tourism Facilitators that are looking to outsource healthcare overseas have the opportunity to meet with top International Hospitals and Medical Tourism Companies in one place for the ultimate networking event. As a sponsor, the Tourism Authority of Thailand will receive multiple benefits including international branding throughout the conference.

This year, the Medical Tourism Association has allocated a significant portion of the Congress budget to bring in up to 400 buyers of healthcare that includes global multinational employers, insurance companies and health insurance agents. The conference will feature over 150 exhibitors and sponsors, up to 100 expert speakers and up to 1,500 attendees from over 87 countries.
