Columbia: expanding medical travel concierge services


Medellin-based medical tourism agency Health Bridge Medical expands its medical tourism concierge services.

Health Bridge Medical offers a growing list of cosmetic and non-cosmetic procedures. Founded as a concierge services company to support affordable medical tourism to Colombia, the agency connects patients with physicians and dentists across disciplines including dermatology, maxillofacial surgery, ophthalmology, cosmetic surgery, Lasik, and stem cell therapy.

Most business comes from the USA due to the disparity in the cost of surgical and nonsurgical procedures between the United States and Colombia.

The company now facilitates a patient’s travel to Medellin, helping them understand Colombian culture, and provides them with information about their options.

Clients are connected to licensed physicians who have been educated in the United States or Europe. Treatments are carried out in safe, hygienic, state-of-the-art facilities.  The agency provides  complimentary consultations to help patients make informed decisions about their treatments overseas.

Based on a patient’s chosen procedure, Health Bridge Medical arranges for transport from the airport to their hotel, Airbnb, or apartment.

If required, the team arranges for translators and guides. Clients can receive booking assistance for sightseeing, shopping, recreational activities, restaurants, and wellness facilities.

As travel between the two countries becomes easier and more like 2019, the agency is ramping up its marketing in the USA.
