Lake Geneva, WI (PRWEB) September 22, 2011
Costa Rican Medical Care (CRMC), a leading medical tourism facilitator specializing in medical and dental procedures performed exclusively in Costa Rica, announced it is working with Hospital Metropolitano to offer their clients additional options to save on medical procedures.
Located in the heart of San José, Hospital Metropolitano offers a combination of high technology, professional ethics, affordable rates and a dedication to patients’ concerns. Hospital Metropolitano provides many procedures such as: medical imaging, clinical laboratory, gastrointestinal endoscopy, complete check-ups, overnight surgeries and hospitalization. For those who need a colonoscopy, the hospital offers the traditional colonoscopy or the less invasive camera colonoscopy that is as simple as swallowing a pill with a micro-camera. The “PILL CAM”, has two cameras with flash which converts over 100,000 pictures into a 3D video.
Dr. Roberto Herrera, along with a group of Costa Rican investors, plan to open a number of these larger ambulatory clinics across Costa Rica. Before opening Hospital Metropolitano, Dr. Herrera was in charge of administration at one of the largest hospitals in Costa Rica and many of his former staff, doctors and surgeons have moved along with him. His son, Dr. Filipe Herrera, is responsible for marketing and expanding their top- of- the-line equipment and services.
“Working with Dr. Felipe Herrera in developing a list of services for our clients has been a great experience,” said Tim Morales, President of Costa Rican Medical Care. “He spent his last year of medical school in the States, so he understands what customer service for medical tourism is all about. Walking through the clinic on one of our many visits there, we understand why Hospital Metropolitano is so popular with the locals. Hospital Metropolitano offers state of the art technology with very accessible prices and USA standards.”
Hospital Metropolitano has been fully accredited by the AAAHC. The Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care - is a private, non-profit organization formed to assist ambulatory health care organizations improve the quality of care provided to patients, currently accrediting almost 5,000 organizations worldwide.
