Healthcare professionals with world-class qualifications and experience, plus internationally-acclaimed hospitals are giving rise to the healthcare capital of Latin America. Monterrey’s location, just a two hour drive from Southern Texas or a short hop by air from multiple US cities, offers you the advantage of less time and spending on travel and the benefit of being closer to your loved ones. Come to a place with a culture which is very similar to that of the U.S., having almost no time zone difference from home (Central Time), enjoy Mexican hospitality, and achieve realistic savings while getting top care. You have nowhere else to look for high quality healthcare.
Great and Affordable Healthcare
Monterrey boasts four Joint Commission International Accredited Hospitals (the most in any Latin American ciy) with the Gold Seal of Approval, including Hospital San Jose TEC. The strict accreditation process ensures patients that these hospitals have a commitment for quality care, a focus on patient safety, and a continuous drive towards excellency in hygiene, availability of equipment, processes, and staffing. Recipients of this accreditation make up a select group of institutions that enter the ranks of renown hospitals such as the Methodist Ambulatory Hospital in San Antonio, TX; the Jackson Memorial Hospital in Miami, FL; and the Cedars - Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, CA; just to name a few.
The pride of the medical community in Monterrey is also the availability of state-of-the-art technology, the focus on adopting the latest and most advanced procedures and techniques, and the permanent training of medical personnel across all disciplines. The presence of three very important research institutions (world-renown Monterrey TEC included) provide constant medical and scientific breakthroughs which are very favorable to this environment.
Safety and Quality of Living
The city of Monterrey is a role model. Its location, infrastructure, and workforce have made it an ideal location for a booming business sector that has driven economic and social well-being to very high standards. This has led to the highest income per capita of Latin America, the highest developmental score in Mexico, and has reinforced personal safety (ranked third among Latin American cities in the Personal Safety rankings according to the Mercer LLC 2008 Survey on Quality of Living).
Cultural Similarities with the US
Being very close to a dynamic border with the US has brought a great influence on the local culture and way of life of Monterrey. Its citizens embrace American culture as nowhere else in Latin America and are extremely welcoming to foreigners, which are commonly found in a city with an increasingly globalized economy. American companies such as Caterpillar, Whirlpool, and New York Life Health Insurance have chosen Monterrey for their regional headquarters. Additionally, from the number of great schools and universities that educate an advanced-thinking workforce, to the enormous amount of trade and multinational corporate presence, English speakers are more common in Monterrey than you might think. Come to Monterrey, we guarantee you’ll feel at ease.
