TIJUANA.- Medical tourism has been for its excellence one of the longest vocations in the city with over 50 years, as the chairman of the State Medical and Health Services Cluster, Ricardo Vega, said.
I assure that one of the objectives of the cluster is to integrate other sectors such as gastronomy, hotels and shops to projects that have to do with attracting foreign tourists to boost the benefits of the region in many ways and to strengthen the state economy.
Taking advantage of the tourist factor, I mentioned that the cluster is currently working on a project for the creation of medical districts to facilitate the visitor arrival and transfer them through medical routes, where various health services are concentrated in one place.
Projects like this contribute to strengthening the city as a place that offers different services and a place where you can find a variety of services and products without having the need to move from one place to another.
In the same way I detailed that modernization of signs, urban planning and crossing times that benefit foreign tourists are essential to fulfill this purpose which could increase the inflow part of tourist economy.
Vega stated that “it is incredible that Tijuana has no signs in English and other languages, being that many visitors from the United States and other countries come daily for medical check-ups and don’t know how to get to clinics and doctors’ offices.”
Finally, the chairman of the State Medical and Health Services Cluster stated that among the most frequent visitors requesting services include dental, oncology, urology, pediatrics, orthopedics, internal medicine and plastic and bariatric surgeries.
