Puerto Rico Now Has 38 Certified Medical Tourism Providers

SAN JUAN – Puerto Rico now has a total of 38 medical tourism providers certified by the Medical Tourism Corporation, or CTM, a government agency.

“We’ve been working hard for the past 16 months, since the Medical Tourism Corporation was formed, developing a robust structure and establishing vital alliances with the private sector, both on the local level and abroad. This has allowed us to consolidate our strategies,” CTM director Francisco Bonet said in a statement.

He said that the recent initiatives had allowed the island to become known as an excellent destination for medical tourism, provide training for personnel in the sector and raise the levels of quality and service provided to patients.

He emphasized that CTM had managed to break into the world medical tourism market by implementing an aggressive strategy promoting Puerto Rico as an ideal destination for patients, thanks – in part – to the launching of the www.starhealthcarepuertorico.com, Website in June 2015.

The plan to certify health care and services providers authorized by the Medical Tourism Association is another of CTM’s main pillars.

The basic idea is to place local providers in a highly competitive global position, the statement concluded.
