Mexico City hopes to lure Chicagoans by touting cheaper healthcare

Chicago Tribune, December 16, 2011
Banking on worries over rising health costs in the U.S., government and hospital officials in Mexico City are courting Chicagoans searching for affordable medical care. On Wednesday, about a dozen Chicago health professionals and several others embarked on a health care tour of Mexico City, part of a campaign to raise that city's profile as a center for medical tourism. The campaign is aimed at residents in Chicago and other cities with large Mexican immigrant populations who need cancer treatment, heart surgeries, dental procedures and other healthcare.
