Every year thousands of Americans travel abroad for less-expensive fertility treatments, hip replacements and other medical procedures.
Now an Israeli-based tourism company is offering a package that combines medical care with a pilgrimage to the Holy Land. IsraMedica already brings some 6,000 nonmedical tourists to Israel every year, most of them Christians.
The company will market its medical tourism package to Christians who want affordable, high-quality medical care and a spiritual experience all in one. It will arrange hotels, transportation and visits to Christian holy sites prior to or after a medical procedure.
