IN 2014, MORE THAN 52,000 CANADIANS RECEIVED NON-EMERGENCY MEDICAL TREATMENT OUTSIDE CANADA*

That’s up more than 10,000 people from 2013, and there’s no reason to think the trend won’t continue. Indeed, one recent survey showed a full 60% of Canadians say they are willing to travel outside Canada to undergo a medical test, procedure or treatment**

That’s why Source Media Group is pleased to introduce Western Canada’s only Medical Travel Show in Calgary, Alberta

Canadians who seek healthcare alternatives abroad do so for many reasons. For many, the main reason is that wait times for various procedures in the local health care system are too long. While some patients may be able to wait for treatment, others cannot either due to physical pain, mental stress or chances their condition will worsen while they wait.

Some patients may elect to seek treatment out of country because of the availability of more advanced facilities or procedures elsewhere. Certainly the statistics show that people travel more to certain locations for treatment of specific maladies.

For some, the motivation is purely financial, as they are able to find more affordable options by looking outside Canada. Whatever the reasons, most experts predict the business of ‘medical tourism’ to continue to increase.

The Medical Travel Show will give interested Albertans the opportunity to meet face-to-face with medical services representatives from other countries, all under one roof.

DESTINATION MEDICAL MAGAZINE


As an added bonus, the Medical Travel Show will be accompanied by Destination Medical, a full-colour glossy magazine designed to complement the information at the show. Who goes where for what procedures? What are the associated costs? What about insurance coverage? Will my own doctor still provide follow-up care? You’ll find the answers to these questions and more in Destination Medical, FREE to every pre-sale/registered guest or at the event door as supply lasts.
