Hospitals International Holdings Sponsors World Medical Tourism & Global Healthcare Congress

Strategy to Promote Medical Tourism, Concierge Services Throughout Latin America, Caribbean, Sept. 27-30, 2015, in Orlando, Fla.

Orlando, FL, September 24, 2015 --( As part of a strategy that reflects a confidence and ongoing commitment to work with the brightest minds in medicine and management to deliver patient-centric medical tourism and concierge services to the Caribbean and Latin America, Hospitals International Holdings (HIH) will sponsor the 8th World Medical Tourism & Global Healthcare Congress, Sept. 27-30, 2015, in Orlando, Fla., the Medical Tourism Association announced today.

“To change the way people experience healthcare, we must first change the way healthcare is delivered,” said David Miller, CEO at HIH. “This is the thought behind every HIH facility. Each of our inpatient hospitals and ambulatory surgery centers, along with the specialty facilities that complete our healthcare campuses, is built for functionality, efficiency and sustainability. But, they are also designed to provide a therapeutic environment in which patients can find both physical healing and ease of mind.”

Miller said HIH coordinates medical travel to integrated medical buildings (IMBs) and healthcare campuses in Latin America and the Caribbean, where teams of international and U.S.-based physicians offer quality and affordable services -- from primary care and naturopathic wellness to specialty surgeries and therapeutic treatments. Within these campuses, HIH also oversees teaching facilities, residency programs and academic training opportunities that help to bridge the gap between developed and emerging healthcare markets.

For its providers and facility partners, HIH manages operations including site development, investor and physician and staff recruitment, regulatory compliance, reporting and analytics, patient movement, billing, collections, and more.
