For Immediate Release: Windsor, Ont. Canada – August 9, 2010
International Health Care Providers Inc. (IHP) announced today that Indiana Orthopedic Hospital has joined the company’s healthcare provider partnership team bringing cutting edge surgical options for Canadian knee or hip replacement surgery patients.
IOH has implemented a specialized Canadian patient advocate program within their already impressive patient centric environment. Services provided by IOH will enable patients to return to a more active lifestyle, quicker and in most cases, with less pain. Because of advancements in medical technology, many of the surgeries performed at IOH can be completed on an outpatient basis, consisting of patient stays lasting 23 hours or less.
In 2009, IOH was named a Summit Award Winner by Press Ganey Associates Inc. for sustaining the highest level of customer satisfaction for three or more consecutive years. For 2010, IOH is rated in the top five percent in the nation for joint replacement; 5-Star rated for joint replacement, total knee replacement, total hip replacement, spine surgery and back and neck surgery (spinal fusion); ranked among the top five in Indiana for joint replacement and spine surgery; and the recipient of the HealthGrades Joint Replacement Excellence Award. For these reasons, coupled with IOH’s sincere passion for providing quality patient care, IHP embraces IOH as an excellent solution for Canadians confined to orthopaedic waiting lists.
IHP’s comprehensive research and integrated international patient program provides specialized concierge services, preferred pricing and immediate patient file review to ensure proper patient – specialist compatibility. Canadian orthopaedic patients will have their pre & post treatment care arranged, travel arrangements secured, medical records transferred and the communication lines opened between their Canadian physician and the IOH surgeon.
Kelly Meloche, President of International Health Care Providers Inc. stated, “We are excited to have the proven excellence of Indiana Orthopedic Hospital as our stand-alone midwest US health care partner. IOH’s direct focus on musculoskeletal care and complex surgical procedures including total joints and spines represent the answers to many Canadian Orthopaedic patients’ prayers.”
