Bumrungrad - The Mayo Clinic of Asia - Joins as a Bidding Facility

PASO ROBLES, Calif., March 4 /PRNewswire/ -- – The Marketplace for Medicine – today announced a strategic partnership with Bumrungrad International that will give patients using the portal access to the facility's world-class physicians on the growing list of US and international doctors and facilities joining MediBid including Perfection Makeover and Laser Center in Cancun, Mexico and Madras Joint Replacement in Chennai, India. Bumrungrad serves over a million patients annually; over 400,000 of which are international. To compete with the US market, English is widely spoken by the doctors, nurses, and other staff.

"The patients seeking bids for care from physicians on MediBid want quality," said Ralph Weber, founder and CEO. "'Bumrungrad' is a Thai word that means 'care for the people.' Its name sums up its medical philosophy. We are excited to add this facility to the growing list of doctors and facilities joining"

In November, 2009, Bumrungrad received recertification from The Joint Commission International (JCI) - the leading international evaluator of hospital quality. This certifies that the hospital's programs meet international standards and follow the latest United States clinical guidelines.

"One of the key reasons we pursued a relationship with Bumrungrad was to give patients a greater choice in where they go for care while still offering the highest quality," said Weber. "They are basically the Mayo Clinic of Asia and we are excited to add them.  We want patients to have a choice in care, be it in the US or overseas."
