Health tourism is a complex, hybrid product made up of destination health and hospitality services and care coordination designed to delight medical travelers and their companions.
Since 2003, we have helped hundreds of ambitious and extraordinary clients to grow and scale their unique game-changing medical, dental, rehabilitation and wellness businesses.
80 percent of these clients are still active.
“Health tourism is an experiential product that offers an unforgettable visitor experience. It is produced by combining carefully coordinated travel to a destination, an opportunity to enjoy the hospitality of its people, its culture and its history, the rest and rejuvenation of its accommodations, the unique flavors and recipes of local and regional gastronomy, and the precision and compassion its health services providers working collaboratively. Together, they produce the elements to create a unique visitor experience and story-telling value that will be shared for generations.” — Dr. Maria Todd, founder and CEO of Mercury Healthcare International, and author of the Handbook of Medical Tourism Program Development.
For the health and wellness tourism industry stakeholders, there is no limit to the innovations, creativity and market penetration strategies one can create to develop a unique product and a brand of health and wellness tourism. The late Peter Drucker said in The Practice of Management that “If we want to know what a business is, we have to start with its purpose. And the purpose must lie outside the business itself. In fact, it must lie in society, since a business enterprise is an organ of society. There is only one valid definition of business purpose: to create a customer.”
