Companion Global Healthcare Expands Service to Include Hospitals in Mexico
Date:2/18/2009

COLUMBIA, S.C., Feb. 18 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Medical travel company Companion Global Healthcare Inc. announced today that its individual clients and U.S. employer groups now have additional options for saving money on surgery and other medical care while remaining closer to home.

Companion Global Healthcare President David Boucher said his company has accepted the CIMA Hospitals in Hermosillo, Mexico, and Monterrey, Mexico, into its network of accredited, international hospitals that treat American patients at affordable prices.

The hospitals are the first in Mexico to join the network.

Today's announcement means Companion Global Healthcare will arrange travel, set appointments and provide other services to its individual clients and U.S. employer group members who choose treatment at either CIMA facility, as it does for clients traveling to any network hospital.

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.

The network includes 15 hospitals in India, Costa Rica, Singapore, Thailand, Turkey, Ireland, Taiwan and Mexico. All network hospitals are accredited by the Joint Commission International (JCI), and all have completed Companion Global Healthcare's extensive credentialing process.

"U.S. employers searching for ways to save on employee health care have encouraged us to bring into our network some accredited hospitals in Mexico, and we are pleased to announce our affiliation with CIMA Hermosillo and CIMA Monterrey," Boucher said. "Both cities receive direct flights from multiple U.S. cities, making travel convenient for our clients.

"Both facilities are excellent additions to our network, offering employers and individuals more options for seeking a high standard of medical care at an affordable price."

Both CIMA Hermosillo and CIMA Monterrey are owned by International Hospital Corp. (IHC) of Dallas, Texas. CIMA Monterrey is an acute-care hospital, providing a full range of diagnostic, therapeutic, emergency and surgical services. CIMA Hermosilla is one of Mexico's main medical centers for cardiology.

"Quality and patient safety are the two most important considerations for the CIMA Hospital Group, just as they are for Companion Global Healthcare," said Gary Wood, Ph.D., IHC's board chairman. "It is those factors, and the convenient proximity of the CIMA hospitals immediately next door in Mexico, that promise to make our affiliation with Companion Global Healthcare a success."

Employer groups interested in restructuring their benefit plans to include Companion Global Healthcare's network and services should call 1-800-906-7065.
