Also a large portion of people who speak Spanish also travel for healthcare, so for the MTA these were the two most important languages for us to have working and live on We are excited to shortly release in the next few weeks the website being launched in Russian, Chinese and then additional languages,” Ms. Stephano added.

This will prove to be a game changer for the Medical Tourism Association™ and the industry as a whole, allowing patients who speak certain languages to literally have the healthcare of countries from around the world at their fingertips and to be one of the most extensive international healthcare websites in the world. is a comprehensive internet portal and informational website established for medical tourism; an educational web portal, which includes not only the education of patients, but insurance companies and employers in the Medical Tourism Industry as well.
