most American patients obtain medical treatment in Mexico or India. Currently, countries like India and Thailand provide state-of-the-art amenities for critical treatments like hip or knee replacements and cardiac surgery. Some other popular destinations are Singapore, Belgium and South Africa. Many people from Northern and Western Europe visit Central and Eastern Europe for low-priced medical and dental care.Medical tourism for USA citizens is a safe and affordable alternative when the necessary research and precautions are taken prior to the journey.

Hard to see how a facility in Florida could come close to matching the total value (Cost/Quality) offered by many Joint Commission International Accredited facilities such as Anadolu, Bumrungrad or even perhaps Severance.

In the minds of world travelers, Florida is already a known commodity. Advertising won't be enough to increase and sustain medical tourism patients to Florida. Stakeholders – the hospital administrators, the physicians, the hospitality entities – interested in strengthening Florida's position as a medical tourism destination need to identify niche areas of healthcare and promote those services offered to patients who need them most.
