DENVER & SASKATOON, Saskatchewan--(BUSINESS WIRE)--A contract announced today between North American Specialty Hospital (NASH) and Global Healthcare Connections (GHC) opens the door to Canadian patients for high quality surgical care delivered outside of Canada at prices far below those in the U.S. The first-ever Center of Excellence located outside of the U.S., NASH now offers its U.S. platform of service deployed in Cancun to Canadians seeking to self-pay for expedited hip and knee replacements.
The NASH platform features U.S. surgical equipment, U.S. medical supplies, U.S. clinical protocols, U.S. performance metrics, the engagement of U.S. surgeons at every step from pre-op through post-op, an attached Sheraton Four Points hotel, and a hospital facility accredited by both the U.S.-based Joint Commission International as well as Accreditation Canada.
“We are delighted to make NASH available to Canadians through our relationship with GHC, a true leader in international medical travel and tourism,” says Jim Polsfut, CEO, chairman and co-founder of NASH. “GHC will provide an invaluable service to our patients from Canada, based on GHC’s long and successful history of proactively managing the transfer of medical records, logistical arrangements and travel on behalf of Canadians seeking medical care abroad.”
Adele Kulyk, CEO and founder, GHC, says, “NASH has achieved exceptional performance and quality metrics and now offers our Canadian clients a premier, personalized healthcare experience. NASH’s unique model represents the highest standards of American care, at a Canadian Accredited hospital in Cancun, an appealing and accessible location via non-stop flights originating throughout Canada, and at much more affordable prices than those typically paid by Canadians seeking care in the United States.”
