Health tourism in Tijuana

At the end of 2020, Tijuana became the capital of health tourism in Mexico, crowning itself as the medical destination par excellence for North American patients, thanks to the benefits in low costs of consultations, procedures, drugs, and surgeries (prices between 30 and 70% less).

Expansion of the supply of health services in the northwest area

Once the hospital is inaugurated, the health care gap between the states of Jalisco and Baja California will be closed, offering specialized services to surrounding cities and towns.

Similarly, the new Hospital Puerta de Hierro Tijuana will offer its wide range of specialties and services to patients from the United States, mainly from the states of California and Arizona who seek the best care at considerably more accessible prices.

Cardiology, neurosurgery, ophthalmology, cosmetic and reconstructive surgery, internal medicine, angiology, traumatology, and orthopedics, among many other medical specialties, will converge in a space designed for the maximum comfort of the patient.

Presale of offices

A select group of specialists will be able to form part of this medical district, through a meticulous selection process that goes hand in hand with the institutional philosophy and commitment to excellence that characterize Hospital Puerta de Hierro.

The event was attended by Kurt Honold Morales, Secretary of Economy and Innovation of the State Government, Miguel Angel Bujanda, Secretary of Territorial, Urban and Environmental Development of the Tijuana City Council on behalf of Mayor Monserrat Caballero Ramírez, Dr. Adrian Medina Amarillas, Secretary of Health of the State, Mr. David Saul Guakil, President of Grupo Cosmopolitan, Dr. Ricardo Acosta Gonzalez, President Of the Board of Directors of Hospital Puerta de Hierro, Marco Tena, Director of Projects of Grupo Cosmopolitan and Engineer Alejandro Gil Luna, Dir General of Hospitals Puerta de Hierro, businessmen, doctors, and the media.
