About Us

What we do...

We offer high quality, affordable and safe alternatives to the medical, health screening and wellness services that are available to our clients in the countries where they live.

Why Medical Tourism?

Medical tourism, or ‘global healthcare’ as it is often referred to, involves traveling to a foreign country for a medical procedure.

The industry has been rapidly expanding in recent years, as more and more people seek faster or cheaper alternatives to the healthcare offered in their own countries. Over 1,000,000 clients travel outside of the USA each year for medical procedures.

There are many reasons to travel abroad for medical care. The three primary reasons are huge savings (prices up to 80% lower than in the USA), quality of care (which is often superior) and availability of care. Elective treatments such as dental care, Lasik eye surgery and cosmetic surgery are particularly popular.

Mexico is one of the leading destinations for Medical Tourism clients and is a popular and recognized tourist destination. Merida is the safest city in Mexico, the Yucatan along with its Mayan history, is recognized as being a centre for outstanding cultural tourism.

Why Yucatan?

The Yucatan has an extensive network of hospitals, public & private clinics and laboratories in constant growth with on-going investment in technical advancement, ensuring quality medical care and high level expertise.

Close associations with hospitals and academic institutions in the USA and other countries along with the medical research and monitoring projects performed here by our hospitals and universities, place Merida as the main health destination of Southeast Mexico.

Well known for its hospitality, warmth and professionalism in medical care, the hospital infrastructure and the cost of medical services, all make it possible for Merida to provide world class, affordable, high quality medical services.

Who are we?

We are Professional Medical Advocates/Facilitators providing a uniquely personal service. We provide reliable information and professional support to patients. We provide information regarding the hospitals, doctors, treatments and procedures, and help patients select the best medical provider that meets all of their needs.

Why choose HealthItinerary & what makes us different?

Search the web and you will find a large number of companies offering services to the medical tourist. In doing your due diligence, how do you decide who to work with?

We are a small team of professionals who all live here in Merida, Yucatan which gives us a huge advantage over the companies based overseas. We know the medical landscape, we know the pricing structure, we know the city and our job is to be your advocate.

We believe our business model gives you the client, the best medical services, and best patient support at an affordable & fair price.

Unlike many companies in the industry who get paid from afar by simply brokering a connection, receiving referral fees from Doctors or Hospitals, or bundling fees together, we do not receive broker or referral fees from Doctors or Hospitals.

Fees for all services associated with a procedure are itemised, including those for the professional advocate/facilitator services that we provide you.

We have a bi-lingual Medical Doctor on our team who has worked in the public and private healthcare sectors both here in Merida, and in the USA. He is familiar with all of the medical institutions and Doctors, which gives us an enormous advantage in connecting you to the best Doctor for your particular needs.
