Washington, DC, August 30, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- Continuing its efforts to evaluate and expand international allegiances that better healthcare, Nueterra Global Alliance will again sponsor the 7th World Medical Tourism & Global Healthcare Congress, Sept. 20-24, 2014, in Washington, D.C., the Medical Tourism Association® announced today.
“Medical tourism is a growing market and continues to change, providing increased patient options both domestically and globally,” said David Miller, president of Nueterra Global Alliance. “The biggest trend we are noticing with medical tourism is that people want access to quality healthcare, and that cost is not always the primary motivation. Another trend is that medical tourism is happening inbound to the United States and within the United States.”
Nueterra Global Alliance, which most recently welcomed Marina Del Ray Hospital, in California, and Hospital Galenia, in Cancun, Mexico, to its provider network of 10,000 physicians and 25 health systems, also will co-sponsor the 5th Global Ministerial Summit of the Congress, Sept. 21, 2014, at the Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center. The Summit attracts health, tourism and economic development ministers as well as trade commissioners and health attachés to the Congress in Washington, D.C.
“Nueterra is a global, forward-thinking organization — yet at our core, we’re all about cultivating relationships with the people who have made healthcare their life’s work,” said Miller. “We believe the future of medicine depends upon bringing together healthcare partners in mutually beneficial joint ventures that help them connect, integrate and collaborate. We also believe the ongoing evolution of healthcare will continue to create opportunities to improve patient care while increasing market share and profitability for our partners.”
The World Medical Tourism & Global Healthcare Congress attracts some 3,000 key stakeholders – hospital administrators, doctors and clinicians, employers, government policy makers, insurance executives, facilitators, and hospitality and tourism interests – from across the globe to share their experiences and identify and solve issues that bear significantly on the industry.
