HMA has identified five reasons for traveling patients to choose their facility.

 1. JCI Accreditation

For any hospital in the world, JCI accreditation is the first and foremost driver for competition.

2. Affordability

HMA is well aware of the global medical tourism competition. This is a statement on their website convincing patients to choose their facility:

“HMA is extremely price competitive when compared to private medical care in North America and other international destinations. Our prices are 30-50% less than comparable care in Thailand and Singapore, and as much as 80% less than private healthcare in the US. HMA also offers packages for popular surgeries that include doctor and hospital fees.”

3. Proximity

HMA tries to take advantage of its geographical proximity to California and the convenience of US flights from major airports such as Chicago O’Hare and Houston G. Bush.
