Quiron Torrevieja gains international recognition

Entrega premios IMJT 2017 Torrevieja

IN THE category of ‘Highly Recommended’, the highly acclaimed Quiron Hospital in Torrevieja has gained recognition for being the Best International Hospital in that category at the 2017 International Medical Travel Journal (IMTJ) Medical Travel Awards.

The international medical tourism award recognised the work undertaken and the tremendous effort made by the hospital to attract foreign patients to this part of the Alicante province.

The hospital was given the award by the judges as part of the prizes organized by the medical travel publication at its annual presentation ceremony held in Opatija (Croatia) which brought together all the prominent providers and experts in both travel and medical tourism sectors.

Territorial Director of Quirónsalud Levante, Francisco Fiestras, highlighted “the importance of the recognition, especially for the work of the hospital staff that make international patients feel at home. Quirónsalud Torrevieja considers the award as an incentive to continue working on the values that characterise the Quirónsalud Hospital Group in favour of excellence, relying on state-of-the-art technology and internationally renowned medical teams.”

IMTJ jury president Keith Pollard pointed out that the awards include some of the best medical tourism companies and encourage other similar organisations to participate. “Medical travel is an exciting and growing global industry, with many providers providing excellence in both medical care and customer service. The IMTJ Medical Travel Awards are the only independent awards that recognise those who are the best of the best and we hope they encourage others to imitate the success of the winners. The judges wanted to reward innovation and excellence, highlight good practices and honor those who open the way in the industry and provide successful results to patients.

In addition, Pollard explained that “all our winners exemplify how the medical-professional tourism industry should be developed, offering exceptional patient care and providing the best medical outcomes possible. I’m looking forward to next year’s awards in the hope that other clinics and companies will achieve or match their goals or even beat this year’s winners.”
