The Caribe Hilton and The Condado Plaza Hotel have received a WellHotel™ certification in Puerto Rico. Both hotels completed an intensive training and evaluation program offered through the Medical Tourism Association and The Puerto Rico Medical Tourism Corporation.
The WellHotel certification program offers a unique curriculum that fosters effective interaction among hotel administrative and service personnel with patients, medical providers, and ground operators. The Caribe Hilton and Condado Plaza participated in the WellHotel training program that ensured their services were responsive to medical guests from safety requirements and interpersonal communication to cultural sensitivity protocols and disease prevention practices.
The Puerto Rico Medical Tourism is campaigning to market the healthcare services in Puerto Rico to international patients. This is expected to create some 3,000 jobs. In addition to The Caribe Hilton and The Condado Plaza, other hotels in Puerto Rico are expected to complete the WellHotel certification requirements.
