Web-based medical tourism company Global Health Voyager Inc. (OTCBB: GLHV) today announced it has entered into a partnership with Assaf Harofeh Medical Center, one of the largest hospitals in Israel. An 800-bed facility, Assad Harofeh Medical Center offers traditional Western medicine and a comprehensive range of medical-surgical services.
“The addition of Assaf Harofeh is a critical move as Global Health Voyager continues to expand globally into an international medical management company,” says Moussavi. “With 28 countries on four continents catering to the international health travel, and more than two million patients, this is a fast-growth industry with opportunities for GLHV to fully capitalize on this explosive interest.”
The hospital cares for a relatively large number of tourists, offering pleasant and peaceful modern facilities. Located only 15 km from Tel Aviv and Ben Gurion Airport on a 60-acre campus, patients have access to 24-hour emergency services, intensive care, general medical, surgical, cardiac, pediatric, neonatal, gynecological and obstetric medical services and ambulatory psychiatric services.
AHMC is an academic teaching facility and is part of the Tel Aviv University Sackler Faculty of Medicine. All of the clinical wards are accredited for specialist training by the Academic Council of The Israel Medical Association. The grounds also host the first and largest Academic Nursing School and the oldest School of Physiotherapy in Israel.
“Israel is a highly sought-after destination for medical care as well as tourism,” says Ali Moussavi, GLHV president and CEO, noting that Israel is increasingly becoming a choice destination for medical tourists, with first-class healthcare facilities and services that are comparable to the U.S. and at significantly lower costs. “The GLHV network continues to expand, offering institutions such as Assaf Harofeh that provide the highest standards of care.”
