The Dominican Health Tourism Association (ADTS) – by its acronym in Spanish – is the strongest advocate of positioning the Dominican Republic as a high-quality, secure, and cost-effective destination for medical travelers.
To accomplish the goal of becoming a medical travel destination, ADTS works with hospitals, wellness centers, hotels, medical insurance companies, the public and private sector, industry associations, hotels, and doctors.
ADTS supports the DR hospitality conditions, attractive geographical position, climate, and favors best practices in the Health sector as in certified and accredited centers and specialists, to provide the best results and a positive experience to all.
One of these steps towards becoming a key Medical Travel destination is the agreement between ADTS and the Dominican Ministry of Foreign Relations signed on October 17′, in which the latter commits to promoting the offer by massifying the Second Health and Wellness Tourism Destination Guide in all consulates and embassies abroad.
“This agreement will strengthen the promotion of the Dominican Republic as high-quality health and retirement destination, with competitive prices, to citizens of the world undergoing any medical issues,” mentioned Dr. Alejandro Cambiaso, President of the Dominican Health Tourism Association, during his speech.
Dr. Alejandro Cambiaso is a Doctor of Medicine, specializing in Family and Community Medicine at the Ibero-American University and the Plaza de la Salud General Hospital.
He is a founding member of the international department at Plaza de la Salud, certified as a center of excellence by the International Patient Certification (IPS).
In 2015, he received the Medical Tourism Leader of the Year from the Medical Tourism Association®, during the 8th World Medical Tourism & Global Healthcare Congress in Orlando, FL.
What Does The Dominican Health Tourism Association Strive For?
