Some interesting facts about the Israel Medical Tourism Companies Association

In 2013, a team of like-minded people decided to create the Israeli corporation ISMTA (Israel Medical Tourism Association), which would not be some kind of commercial project, but focused on improving and further developing quality medical services for foreign patients.

The initiators and co-founders of the alliance have made a lot of efforts to popularize Israeli medicine in the international market and maintain its leading position to this day.

Now the Association of Medical Tourism Companies is led by a board of representatives from leading Israeli medical centers. The structure of the consortium is a highly professional team, which includes a legal adviser, a press secretary, a communications manager, an administrative director, and a number of others.

For almost six years of its existence, ISMTA has become the most influential and respected institution in Israel, which provides medical care to foreign citizens at the highest level. Ultimately, as the president of the Israel Medical Tourism Companies Association Oleg Shulman noted, the number of medical organizations wishing to join this community is growing rapidly, as all colleagues realize that ISMTA really cares about the interests of the medical tourism business in the country.

The Israeli Association of Medical Tourism Companies coordinates all its activities not only with the Ministry of Health, but also with the Ministry of Tourism, being the official representative of the State of Israel in the transnational health tourism market.

Thanks to such joint activities of professionals, information and experience of treatment abroad are exchanged, additional promising markets are opening up for the development of business in the field of medicine ..
