The Dominican Association of Health Tourism -ADTS- and Banco Lafise signed an inter-institutional agreement to strengthen the scope of medical travel in the Dominican Republic.
The accord aims to encourage international patients, from cities and countries where Banco Lafise has offices, to access healthcare in the Caribbean country.
Dr. Alejandro Cambiaso, president of the Dominican Association of Health Tourism and Edgar Ivan del Toro, general manager of Banco Lafise, consolidated the agreement that creates a structure that also facilitates loans for local patients and international patients to finance medical, dental, and aesthetic treatments.
The signup is of great importance for the Dominican Republic’s intention to reach thousands of medical travelers in the United States and Latin America.
Banco Lafise has offices in:
- North America – Miami (Florida), and Mexico
- Europe – Madrid
- Caribbean – Dominican Republic
- Central America -Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, and Panama.
- South America – Colombia and Venezuela
“We provide advanced financial solutions for the requirements of institutions, companies, and individuals, supporting the development of communities and countries”, as noted in the bank’s mission statement.
According to Dr. Cambiaso, “financial support will also be promoted for the acquisition of modern technologies, medical equipment, software, and continuous improvement processes.”
The potential improvements include international accreditations and training aimed at strengthening the quality, innovation, and competitiveness of the health and tourism sectors.
