Hospitals in Puerto Rico Join Companion Global Healthcare's Network
Date:12/16/2009

COLUMBIA, S.C., Dec. 16 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Medical travel facilitator Companion Global Healthcare Inc. has accepted two state-of-the-art hospitals in Puerto Rico into its network of international hospitals that treat American patients at prices substantially lower than those at mainland U.S. facilities.

The announcement means Companion Global Healthcare will offer medical travel assistance and preferred pricing for its individual clients and employer group members who seek treatment at either HIMA San Pablo Bayamon or HIMA San Pablo Caguas.

The hospitals, part of the HIMAHEALTH network, employ cutting-edge technology in cardiovascular surgery, orthopedic surgery, neurology, oncology and other specialties. Both facilities are accredited by the Joint Commission, and their medical staffs include U.S. board-certified physicians. Puerto Rico is the only locale in the Caribbean that boasts Joint Commission-accredited hospitals.

"HIMAHEALTH hospitals are equipped with the latest technology, and their prices will enable our clients to obtain the care they need at an affordable cost," said David Boucher, president of Companion Global Healthcare. "Since Puerto Rico is a short flight from many U.S. cities, HIMAHEALTH hospitals offer an added level of convenience for many of our clients."

Companion Global Healthcare's international network now includes 26 hospitals around the world. All the hospitals are Joint Commission-accredited, and rates are up to 90 percent less than at hospitals in the United States.

"We are excited about the affiliation between HIMAHEALTH and Companion Global Healthcare," said Armando Rodriguez, a HIMA San Pablo executive vice president. "U.S. patients already travel for medical care to places as far away as India and Singapore; it makes sense for them to travel a shorter distance for treatment."
