West Palm Beach, FL, May 12, 2011 –(– We look forward to working closely with EuroSpaClub International to foster the growth and development of inbound and outbound health and wellness services in these promising regions, said Renée-Marie Stephano, President of the Medical Tourism Association and Editor-in-Chief of Medical Tourism Magazine, Health Tourism Magazine and Healthcare Development Magazine.

Healthcare Prevention and Wellness Programs are essential to effectuate the continuum of care for traveling patients. These services complement the surgical procedures being sought by medical tourism patients and in many cases can provide people with the life style changing tools they need to produce long term positive outcomes for their medical procedures and their lives in general, she added.

Education is a critical component of the relationship between these two organizations. Some of the larger markets for such programs are found in the United States and Western Europe where the concept of wellness is taking a stronger foothold. “We are very excited about partnering with MTA and to continue to educate US consumers and partners on the value of Wellness Tourism programs and proven preventative protocols.

The American public is getting more anxious about the healthcare choices and we are firmly committed to developing new, flexible, cost effective and culturally rewarding wellness experiences for many consumer seeking options, added Alex Romanovich, CMO and co-Founder of EuroSpaClub International.
