Since research began on the first edition of Patients Beyond Borders, Mexico has made great strides in healthcare.
No longer known only for border-town dentistry and cosmetic surgery, Mexico has in recent years come into its own as a global healthcare hub, offering patients an array of specialties and procedures that now begin to rival its competitor nations in Asia.
While estimates vary, researchers place the number of patients traveling to Mexico between 200,000 and 1.1 million, with undocumented Hispanics returning home for care forming much of the discrepancy.
The lion’s share of medical travelers to Mexico patients are regional—from Texas, Nevada, Arizona and Southern California seeking easy access to affordable dental care and cosmetic surgery. But other desstinations in southeast Mexico such as Mérida, the capital city of the state of Yucatán has poisitioned itself as a World-Class Meidical Tourism hub in recent years.
Mérida: great weather all year long, safety and state-ofthe-art medical facilities
Patients from Canada and the UK are also drawn to the region due to the lack of waiting times from overburdened public healthcare systems and the lure of the warm Caribbean waters.
With new facilities and services has come increased international recognition. Many hospitals in Merida, Yucatan enjoy affiliation with major educational institutions.
Today, Mérida offers major medical centers, such as:
