WMTC Platinum Sponsor: Dominican Republic Has It All

The Dominican Republic is committed to capitalize the opportunities presented at the 8th World Medical Tourism Congress (Orlando, Sep 27-30 2015) to develop business relationships with self funded employers, facilitators, governments and other purchasers of healthcare services attending the event.

The Platinum Sponsorship of the Dominican Association of Health Tourism, backed by the support of the main health centers of the Dominican Republic (CEDIMAT, Hospital General de la Plaza de la Salud, Grupo Rescue, Hospital  Metropolitano de Santiago and Centers for Global Health and International Medicine), is without a doubt a turning point in Dominican medicine. 

The top national health institutions are coming together for the first time to strengthen the nation’s brand and to present the Dominican Republic as a consolidated medical tourism destination. The synergies and the decision to improve the quality, security and competitiveness of their medical services will allow the country to gain more volume of international patients in a more-than-ever competitive market.

Building credibility

Dominican Association for Health Tourism is a not-for-profit organization that promotes the Dominican Republic as an ideal place for medical tourism, given its geographical position, great hospitality and climate, and especially its high level and cost-effective medical services, supporting the best practices, quality and security of medical care.

Currently, the organization is conducting statistics regarding medical tourism at a local level, jointly with the national health observatory, and working on large scale strategic private-public alliances. Starting in October of 2015, the Universidad Iberoamericana (UNIBE), the Medical Tourism Association (MTA) and the Dominican Health Tourism Association will be conducting a joint international certification in order to form specialists in medical tourism. Additionally, we have recently executed an agreement with Accreditation Canada, in order to obtain special facilities for international accreditation, which allow and impulse the access to local health centers to such programs, with the objective of strengthening the quality and safety standards in Dominican medicine.

Dominican Republic Health & Wellness Destination Guide

During the 8th World Medical Tourism Congress, the Dominican Republic will present and distribute its Health and Wellness Destination Guide to all congress participants which will be the first official medical tourism document in the country.

The Guide will feature the best hospitals, hotels, airports, recovery and wellness centers, financial institutions and investment opportunities in the Dominican Republic.

Dominican Republic Health & Tourism Destination Guide represents an essential tool to educate healthcare buyers and patients around the world about the best healthcare options in DR. The Guide features the best health centers that are certified and have international departments in order to provide health tourists a high-quality experience.
