"Patients from all over the world are looking for information on the centres that can offer the most guarantees and have proven results in the field of healthcare; these people place significant value on the fact that the centres have been bestowed with renowned international seals such as that offered by the Joint Commission International or that of the European Foundation for Quality Management (EFQM), and are willing to travel in order to receive access to these outstanding services. Furthermore, Spain boasts a wonderful climate and tourist attractions to rival any nation," explains Jesús Bonilla, Managing Director of Sanitas Hospitales.

In this regard, the Sanitas La Zarzuela and Sanitas La Moraleja University Hospitals in Madrid and the Hospital Sanitas CIMA in Barcelona are perfectly positioned to deal with the needs of international patients. "A few years ago patients suffering from cancer travelled to the United States to receive oncological treatment. Nowadays, these patients choose to travel to Spain, to centres that have been granted stamps of excellence that they recognise and in which they can trust because they know that they will be given specialist healthcare with the same level of excellence. The same is taking place with respect to healthcare services. We have an extensive portfolio of medical services in the fields of Assisted Reproduction, Oncology or paediatric, cardiac, bariatric or robotic surgery, which is perfectly equipped to handle the expectations of this type of patient", says Bonilla.
