Inter-Provincial Travel for Surgical Care
Are you waiting for surgery?
Your medical travel journey starts here.
Clearpoint Health is a world-class healthcare provider with 5 multidisciplinary centres across Canada. Each of our state-of-the-art facilities offers independent surgical options for our patients. We offer a wide range of high quality consultations and surgical options. Many of our patients from across Canada choose medical travel, or “medical tourism,” for their care. Instead of going abroad for treatment, Canadian residents have the opportunity to remain in Canada and receive the care they need in another province. Clearpoint Health also has extensive experience and the capability to offer access to Canada’s high quality and respected healthcare to interested individuals from outside Canada.
Medical Inter-Provincial Travel enables Canadian patients to:
- Access care sooner by choosing surgery at our independent centres.
- Receive high quality healthcare services.
- Gain access to the expertise of Canada’s top physicians.
- Be treated in surgical centres that meet strict accreditation and regulatory standards.
- Benefit from centres that use state-of-the-art technology and techniques.
- Enjoy our patient centred care, encompassing diagnosis, surgery, and follow-up.
Medical Travel Options Within Canada
Provincial regulatory restrictions may mean that the surgery or other services you require cannot be accessed in your home province. The good news is you can still access care by travelling to a Clearpoint Health Surgical Centre in another province that offers the service you are interested in.
