Companion Global Healthcare Clients May Choose Brazil for JCI-Accredited Care
Date:3/30/2009

COLUMBIA, S.C., March 30 /PRNewswire/ -- Medical travel facilitator Companion Global Healthcare Inc. announced today that it has accepted Hospital Israelita Albert Einstein in Sao Paulo, Brazil, into its international network of accredited hospitals that treat American patients at affordable rates.

The announcement means Companion Global Healthcare's individual clients and employer group members may choose Albert Einstein, along with any other network hospital, for surgery or other treatment at a fraction of the price typically charged by U.S. hospitals.

Albert Einstein hospital offers a variety of surgical services, including cardiac and orthopedic. It has held the prestigious Joint Commission International (JCI) accreditation since 1999, and has specialized in treating international patients for more than 15 years.

Companion Global Healthcare (www.CompanionGlobalHealthcare.com), based in Columbia, S.C., is a full-service medical travel firm that helps clients arrange travel to its network hospitals, set appointments with physicians, transfer medical records to their hospital of choice, and arrange follow-up care in the United States. The company serves uninsured and underinsured individuals, and contracts with self-insured employers and insurance companies that offer a global care option in their benefit plans.

Rates at Companion Global Healthcare network hospitals are up to 90 percent less than those at U.S. hospitals, meaning individuals and self-insured employers can save tens of thousands of dollars on a single procedure.

Companion Global Healthcare's network includes 16 hospitals in India, Costa Rica, Singapore, Thailand, Turkey, Ireland, Taiwan, Mexico and Brazil. All network hospitals are JCI accredited, and all have completed Companion Global Healthcare's extensive credentialing process.

"We are pleased to welcome Albert Einstein hospital into our network," Companion Global Healthcare President David Boucher said. "The facility is state-of-the-art, and it has a well-deserved reputation for upholding high standards of care and welcoming international patients."

"Hospital Israelita Albert Einstein was a pioneer in international medicine as the first hospital outside the United States to be accredited by the Joint Commission," said Henrique Sutton de Sousa Neves, Albert Einstein hospital's CEO. "We have been treating international patients for more than 15 years, so our staff understands their needs and expectations.

"We are excited about this partnership with Companion Global Healthcare because it shares our vision of excellence and respect in patient care."
