Learn What Hospital Executives Are Saying About Their International
Statement by Johns Hopkins Executive: “A reinvigorated International
Services program brought a dramatic increase in the number of foreign patients
coming to us for care in a year and a half.” Aug 1996.
According to Peter Van Etten, President, Stanford Medical Center: “Industry
has certainly approached international markets as a normal part of their
operations, and so why shouldn’t hospitals?” (Ref #1).
Excerpt from Hopkins Medical News 1997: “To hospitals pinched by cuts
in federal funding, pressured by HMOs and haunted by empty beds, the overseas
market represents a lifeline.”
