Recently, San Javier Hospital´s Director Jesus Flores presented the update on the hospital´s services and the announcement of the new hospital to open October, 2011 in Nuevo Vallarta at the Paradise Village Business center where a new facility is underway and will offer more medical specialists.
San Javier Marina is a hospital of high technology design and constructed to comply with the standards of quality for medicine and surgery offering an array of specialists to take care of your health needs.
Hospital San Javier Marina has a complete medical and technological team and equipment, constantly evolving and improving.
Jesus Flores went over what Canadian and American Health insurances are accepted at Hospital San Javier Marina as this question arises daily from those looking to purchase real estate.
Nicole Martin, local real estate agent, said ” It´s not so bad to be sick in Puerto Vallarta and it is such a relief to be able to give my clients valid information on how they can apply their Blue Cross/Blue Shield and or Medicare policies at the San Javier Marina Hospital.
It truly helps to be able to show clients such a pristine medical institution and be greeted at the door by the director who is bilingual and fully understands the concerns of a person looking at a facility outside of his own country”
Did You Know...
The quality of Mexican health care has been reported to be comparable to that in the United States.
According to the site www.internationalliving.com, health care in Mexico is described as very good to excellent while being highly affordable, with every medium to large city in Mexico having at least one first-rate hospital. In fact, some California insurers sell health insurance policies that require members to go to Mexico for health care where costs are 40% lower. Some hospitals are internationally accredited. Americans, particularly those living near the Mexican border, now routinely cross the border into Mexico for medical care. Popular specialties include dentistry and plastic surgery. Mexican dentists often charge 20 to 25 percent of US prices, while other procedures typically cost a third of what they would cost in the US. The www.internationalliving.com site states that on average, an office visit with a doctor (specialist included) will cost about $25US, an overnight stay in a private hospital room costs about $35, and a visit to a dentist for teeth cleaning costs about $20. Some 40,000 to 80,000 American seniors spend their retirement years in Mexico with a considerable number receiving nursing home and health care.
With many physicians from the U.S. having received their training in Mexico, and with many Mexican doctors having received at least part of their training in the United States, the quality of Mexican health care has been reported to be comparable to that in the United States: In general, health care in Mexico is very good…and in many places it is excellent. Many people often arrive at the conclusion that because health care in Mexico is so cheap compared to the US, the quality of medical attention and knowledge about health care issues in Mexico must be lacking. This is completely false. Not only are Mexican hospitals equipped to a first world standard with modern equipment and hygienic practices, but many Mexican doctors and dentist in fact received their training in the US."
