The conference will be held Saturday, June 16, through Tuesday, June 19 at the Grand Resort Bad Ragaz Wellbeing and Medical Health Center in Switzerland.

Medical tourism, also called medical travel, health tourism or global healthcare, is a rapidly growing practice of traveling across international borders to obtain health care. The Hotels Bridging Healthcare conference will provide a distinctive model on how effectively hotels and hospitals could strategically connect, share experiences and provide quality services to international patients, their families and guests.

This conference is being sponsored by The University of Delaware, an academic partner of Thomas Jefferson University.
