Kiwi company wooing medical tourists from US

TV NZ, February 16, 2011

A New Zealand company, with the help of Sir Stephen Tindall, is wooing American medical tourists to New Zealand for cheap surgery.

Medtral has opened an office in California to target Americans who are searching for cheap elective surgery.

The surgery, which is less than a third of the cost in the US, is available through Auckland-based Ascot Hospital and Clinics, The Dominion Post reported.

Ascot's owners include businesswoman Dianne Forman and The Warehouse chairman Keith Smith.
