Colorado Springs promotion targets potential patients across the USA.

 

The Colorado Springs Convention & Visitors Bureau runs the site. It offers hip replacement, knee replacement and heart valve replacement.

At launch, and for weeks after, the only healthcare provider on the site was Centura Health's Penrose-St. Francis Health Services. CVB says other facilities are interested in partnering, including UCHealth-Memorial Health System and Children’s Hospital Group.

Colorado Springs is located just one hour south of Denver. The Colorado Springs Airport is only 11 miles from downtown and medical facilities.

The Arizona Association for Economic Development is another US body seeking to develop domestic medical tourism. It sees that serving both local and out-of-town clients on medical tourism is a creative path to increased economic growth.

Local hospitals are sharing their knowledge about what inspires medical tourism patients to travel to healthcare facilities, what their client expectations are and what services are provided.
