New Zealand healthcare company has an eye on U.S. customers

Washington Post, July 8, 2008

Better known for its scenery and for offering tourists adventure, New Zealand also has fine private hospitals that, unlike their public counterparts, are not full to overflowing. But the major advantage, and the biggest selling point for Medtral, a New Zealand company set up to attract refugees from the U.S. healthcare system, is cost. Medtral representatives say it can offer procedures at boutique hospitals with follow-up personal nursing care at a fraction of the cost of the same surgery in the United States.
