Medical Tourism Program Launches
In the heart of San Diego's biomedical community, in a tourist-friendly setting overlooking the Pacific Ocean, civic leaders officially kicked off a program to attract wealthy patients and their families. DestinationCare San Diego unites four local health care systems along with the San Diego Tourism Authority to market the region. The message is that San Diego has a rare combination of a tourist-friendly climate, advanced research expertise in critical areas such as genomics, and excellent clinical care. So while patients are cared for, their friends and family members can enjoy all San Diego County has to offer. (Fikes, 11/6)
