Kameda Medical Center to Release Patients Beyond Borders “Focus On™”

First JCI-accredited hospital in Japan to be featured in new medical tourism eBook

(Vocus) June 22, 2010 -- Patients Beyond Borders™, the first consumer reference guide for medical tourism, is pleased to announce the July 2010 release of FOCUS ON: Kameda Medical Center (KMC), profiling one of Japan’s leading private healthcare facilities. FOCUS ON: KMC addresses Kameda’s implementation of global trends, its “Say Yes” concierge services, and its top specialties: oncology, Breast Center, sports medicine, cardiology, interventional neuroradiology, spine surgery, and second-opinion services.

Japan’s first and only JCI-accredited hospital, Kameda boasts a 350-year history through eleven generations of the Kameda family. The 925-bed medical center is one of the largest private hospitals in Japan and is nationally accredited as well as ISO certified. While principally serving citizens of Japan and the immediate region, KMC also serves the medical traveler, welcoming more than 200 international patients in 2009. More than 10% of its 450 fulltime physicians have had postgraduate training abroad, mostly in the United States.

Healthy Travel Media's new FOCUS ON: series features 32-page, full-color digital brochures and eBooks highlighting the world's leading, internationally accredited hospitals and specialty centers in a fully searchable, consumer-friendly format. Published under the Patients Beyond Borders brand, the series offers healthcare consumers detailed information on specialties, procedures, costs, and travel planning from the most recognized, trusted information source in international medical travel.

"We look forward to participating in this dynamic new program," says John Wocher, executive vice president and director of International Patient Services at KMC. "This effort will allow us to proactively promote our facility to the international traveler with up-to-date, interactive information on our medical specialties, pricing, and the quality and safety of our medical services."

FOCUS ON: KMC will be accessible from a variety of sources, including the Patients Beyond Borders Web site, Kameda’s Web site, third-party Web sites, Kindle and other eBook readers, iPhone and other mobile devices, medical, business, and reference libraries worldwide, and all popular social networks.

"Healthcare consumers worldwide will now have access to clear, current information on Kameda’s impressive array of specialties, procedures, international services, and signature programs at their fingertips," says Kate Johnson, FOCUS ON: project manager for Patients Beyond Borders. "Our new series is designed to assist the international patient at the planning stage, and Kameda Medical Center has much to offer the medical traveler."
