The initiative is part of a strategic plan that selected MTA for the training and certification of entities that provides complimentary health care and related services to medical tourism patients. The second stage of the certification for hospitality industry was launched in August, with a group of hotels that are serving patients from abroad.

It is expected that during this semester, six hotels will meet the requirements for certification and others will be addedthroughout the year. Also, the Puerto Rico Medical Tourism Corp. has launched aggressive marketing efforts abroad.
The projected development of this industry will create thousands of jobs and inject millions of dollars into Puerto Rico's economy during these next three years.
