The move is expected to ‘widen access to affordable and world-class healthcare offerings in Costa Rica for American consumers and self-funded employers’, according to the GPN’s parent company, Global Healthcare Resources.
“Our partnership with the GPN is a huge watershed moment for us and for Costa Rica,” said Gerardo Sánchez Cordero, CEO of Hospital Clínica Bíblica. “Clínica Bíblica has a long history of treating medical tourists and providing a high level of healthcare. Joining … demonstrates our commitment to and capacity to provide quality care to American medical tourists, taking our business to the next level.”
The partnership between Clínica Bíblica and the GPN supports strategic plans of the Costa Rican government to position the country as a competitive provider of medical services.
The Panama-based Pacífica Salud Hospital also announced that it had joined the GPN in July this year.
