What is Medical Tourism?
For years North Americans have been searching for affordable ways to meet their healthcare needs. Each year patients are faced with ballooning prices and increased waiting times. That is why the number of patients going out-of-country for their medical needs has risen to millions each year. Most Medical Tourism clients are Westerners who are attracted to the concept of quality surgical treatment for a fraction of the cost they would pay in their own countries.
Company Mission Statement
The Ecuador Medical Tourism Association (EMTA) was created to provide high quality medical procedures to North Americans at a rate significantly cheaper than what they would face at home (and cheaper than the costs in many other Latin American countries).
We at EMTA are dedicated to the confidentiality and comfort of our clients, treating each patient with the dignity and respect they deserve. It is the EMTA mission to facilitate medical services and tourism opportunities personally customized to each of our clients.
The beautiful Andes Mountains serve as a backdrop to Cuenca; the charming historic city where EMTA has directed its focus. Besides housing the most highly renowned medical school in the entire South American region, Cuenca offers a wide variety of entertainment and rich cultural experiences. In addition to this, Cuenca’s location, the fresh foods available, and the tranquil environment provide the ideal area for healing and recuperation. Whether you come just for a specific procedure, or extend your stay to include a vacation, your time in Cuenca will be well spent.
