Although it is not possible to know exactly how many people visit foreign countries to receive medical healthcare, it is estimated that over 50,000 American and Canadian medical tourists a year seek treatment in Mexico.
You may have considered becoming a medical tourist yourself. But why should you be a medical tourist in Mexico?
Surgical procedures are up to 75% cheaper in Mexico than in the US. A survey conducted in 2010 estimated that 46.3 million Americans didn’t have medical healthcare insurance in 2009 and 60 million Americans have, at some point, had a gap in their healthcare cover. This is not surprising considering the tough economic times that people have seen over the last few years but if the time comes when you or a family member need medical attention you could be left facing a hefty bill. Going to Mexico for your procedure will save money whilst giving you peace of mind.
The Angeles Health hospitals are conveniently located so that they are a short car drive or domestic flight away from you. Our hospital in Tijuana, where most of our procedures are performed, is situated just a 20 minute drive from San Diego, a 2 hour drive from Los Angeles and a 5 hour flight from New York or Toronto, meaning that travelling to us for medical care is as stress free as possible.
Highly qualified, professional staff. The doctors at AHI are highly trained, often in The USA. Their level of training and skill means that patients coming to Mexico for medical treatment will receive the best care available, in our out of their native country.
We have a network of 22 hospitals, 6 of which treat international patients. Eleven thousand Angeles Health physicians treat nearly five million patients a year. The size of our organization means that we will have a professional specialist for your area of medical attention. We don’t have one-size-fits all doctors but someone who is passionate about and has specialized in their area of expertise.
Often people are on long waiting lists for treatment, only for the treatment to be cancelled on the day of surgery. If you come to Mexico for your treatment you will skip wait lists and get the medical attention you need, when you need it, not 3, 6 or 12 months after!
New and exciting procedures not yet available in the US. As the biggest hospital network in Mexico we are at the forefront of medical advancement, offering traditional long accepted treatments, alternative treatments and some brand new therapies, such as functional oncology, stem cell therapy and CCSVI. At AHI we offer life changing procedures that do not yet have FDA approval, but do have approval from other medical boards outside the USA, such as COFEPRIS, the Mexican equivalent (literal translation is Federal Commission for Protection against Health Risks; Mexico).
So as you can see, while we offer routine treatments at a lower price than you will find them in America, we also offer proven new treatments that are not yet available in other countries. Most of all though, we offer peace of mind. If you choose to come to Mexico for your healthcare we promise you the best doctors, best accommodation and high quality aftercare, making this step in your journey as simple, stress free and pleasurable as we can. If you have any questions about the procedures that we offer or would like any more information then please contact us.
