We are so pleased to be partnering with Healthy Travel Media to produce and distribute Patients Beyond Borders: Monterrey Edition
Chapel Hill, NC (Vocus) September 28, 2010
Healthy Travel Media and Monterrey Healthcare City (MHC) are pleased to announce Patients Beyond Borders: Monterrey Edition, to be published in English for international distribution in February of 2011.
Supported by the leading healthcare facilities of Monterrey, Mexico, the Patients Beyond Borders® research and editorial team worked with MHC to produce this 144-page, fully digital guidebook, which offers an in-depth overview of Monterrey’s leading American-accredited hospitals, selected health travel agents, accommodations, and essential medical travel information for the international patient.
Monterrey now boasts four JCI-accredited hospitals within its city limits—half the JCI hospitals in Mexico—plus an array of private international specialty hospitals and clinics. Readers will learn about Monterrey’s commitment to healthcare (including three first-rate medical schools: Tecnologico de Monterrey, Universidad de Monterrey, and the new Universidad Autonoma de Nuevo Leon) and why thousands of medical travelers are making the short trip across the border to Monterrey for medical procedures, including cosmetic surgery, dentistry, bariatrics/weight management, IVF/reproductive services, orthopedics, cardiology, cancer treatments, and more.
“We are so pleased to be partnering with Healthy Travel Media to produce and distribute Patients Beyond Borders: Monterrey Edition,” says Dr. Jesus Horacio Gonzalez Treviño, medical services director of Clínica Vitro and president of the Monterrey Healthcare City Association. “With medical specialties and procedures at 30–70% savings compared to US prices, coupled with easy access from North America, we are not surprised to see that Monterrey has become the choice of many seeking quality, affordable international healthcare closer to home.”
In addition to comprehensive checklists showing “How to Become a Savvy, Informed Medical Traveler,” readers receive detailed guidance on budgeting and planning for a medical journey; thorough profiles, including specialties and centers of excellence, of fully accredited Mexican hospitals catering to the international patient; and visitor and sightseeing information on the region, with maps, illustrations, and 24 pages of color inserts showcasing Monterrey’s world-class facilities and attractions. Electronic versions will be available through retail outlets worldwide, Amazon and other online retailers, and MHC.
The new Patients Beyond Borders series of City Editions allows a healthcare cluster (a group of medical facilities within a closely knit geographical area) to focus industry and consumer attention on the unique attributes of its medical infrastructure, leading facilities, and educational and research offerings. PBB City Editions are distributed digitally and in print throughout the world, as well as to selected regions served by that cluster. If your hospital or clinic is part of a healthcare cluster, please contact Judy Orchard, email@example.com, to learn more about this unique opportunity to increase your visibility and reach to international healthcare consumers.
