This Week in Medical Travel Today
Strength in numbers seems to be the prevailing theme of this week’s issue.
Beginning with our SPOTLIGHT featuring Sophia Quint, Head of Health Tourism at visitBerlin, we learn how German care providers, hospitality organizations, and travel companies are pulling together to define Berlin as a medical travel destination, and create new business opportunities and better patient experiences.
In addition, there are a number of new partnerships in the news — from a leading franchise spa and medical travel facilitator collaborating to promote services to the launch of a new consulting organization comprised of four industry experts, tapping their extensive networks and experience to assist medical travel destinations and international healthcare organizations create visions for growth and capitalize on opportunities.
In addition, we have an interesting piece on how medical tourism helps retirees overseas, which was penned by Kathleen Peddicord, publisher of liveandinvestoverseas.com. The item originally appeared in the money section of U.S. New & World Report, and is republished here with permission of the author.
As always, we welcome your comments, story ideas and press releases.
