Patients without borders: Americans willing to travel to high-quality foreign hospitals

Sg2 (free registration required), June 25, 2009
A new Gallup Poll finds a substantial proportion of Americans willing to consider traveling outside the United Sttes to obtain major medical treatments and procedures, notes Sg2 Director Michael Warren. One hospital providing the kind of high-quality, lower-cost care with growing appeal to medical tourists is Bangkok's Bumrungrad International Hospital, he says. Sg2 thought leaders and selected members of Sg2's Design Forum have visited Bumrungrad to experience the organization's innovation and quality first hand.
