The Philippines, with its 7,107 islands, is known to the world for its pristine beaches and scenic landscape. Boracay, Palawan, Ilocos Norte, Cebu are few well-known places. But there are a lot more to explore from its northernmost province of Batanes with its dramatic cliffs down to Siargao and its year-round thriller waves.
Unknown to some, the Philippines is not just a leisure destination, it is a prime healthcare destination as well. Belonging now to the top 10 Global Medical Tourism Destinations , the Philippines has top-notch medical facilities and cutting-edge technology, English-proficient, culturally-sensitive and caring professional healthcare workers and specialists, accommodation choices that individually provide their clientele with world-class services. It now offers quality and cost efficient medical services and wellness packages that are at par with international standards but uniquely Filipino.
What makes the Philippines different from other Medical Tourism destinations? Simply think of the word synergy. (Synergy – the interaction of elements that when combined produce a total effect that is greater than the sum of the individual elements.) Health & Leisure synergizes quality, cost efficiency, leisure and medical professionals’ unique caring and warm personality with one’s medical itinerary. Putting these element/s together creates a medical experience like no other.
To make it more personalized and customized, Health and Leisure, one of the top medical tourism integrators in the Philippines in partnership with the Department of Tourism, top-notch hospitals, world-class ambulatory clinics, state of the art wellness centers, hotels and other accommodation facilities, makes sure that every medical tourist experiences the most seamless service possible, guaranteeing an easy and hassle-free medical holiday. Many patients decide to travel directly to the country of their choice without proper planning; clueless on which hospital to go to, who is the right specialist to speak with and oblivious to the cost of the services, therefore wasting precious time and money.
Health & Leisure removes the strain of planning from its clients and its commitment to extend its help officially starts from the moment it receives an inquiry. This entity makes certain that all inquiries are acknowledged within 24 hours and a comprehensive plan for the clients’ requirements is formulated within 48 to 72 hours. Said plan already includes, hospital, clinic or wellness center suggestions, recommended doctors, accommodation options and expected costs. The package includes assisting clients in booking their trips and arranging their itinerary from the day of arrival up to their return, starting with airport pick up, hotel or other accommodation check in; initial diagnostic procedures and check-up with the doctor, hospital admission until discharge; post-operative care and even securing clearance to fly from a doctor prior to departure. Airport drop-off will be provided as well.
In addition, aside from the customary provision of transfer from hotels to medical facilities, once a prospective client books with Health and Leisure, said client will be guided by one of its staff all throughout his/her medical journey. Every patient will be provided with a Registered Nurse (RN) to function as Case Manager. The RN will assist the patient from the moment of his/her inquiry, to the time arrival details are confirmed, than thru the comprehensive process of one’s medical tourism itinerary, and before the patient goes back to his/her home country. This covers day one (1) to-day seven (7) or more of one’s trip.
As what the Department of Tourism says, “It’s more fun in the Philippines!”, Health & Leisure will extend this expression, literally, to make it all the more fun for medical services seekers.
