Almater Hospital in Mexicali: Specialty Building Success Story

Almater HospitalOver 25 years ago, Almater Hospital was founded in the border city of Mexicali, in northern Mexico. Today, it is a booming health center, drawing patients from across Mexico, the United States, and from around the world.

The Mexicali hospital’s specialty building—the professional home for a wide variety of medical specialists—opened in 2012, has been a huge success, one which has been acknowledged by the staff, the community and even the mayor of the city, Francisco Perez.

The building includes 30 offices, an X-ray area, laboratory, pharmacy and hemodialysis area. It employs 60 doctors and specialists. A part of the building is designated for giving service to local patients who can’t afford medical treatment. This policy of giving back to the community is an integral part of the Almater philosophy that believes people from Mexicali have a mission to help their city and their community.

The mayor of Mexicali praised the new building on local TV. He commented on the high quality and humane treatment provided by medical professionals with offices in the building and how the local economy has grown as people from other parts of the region and from the US and elsewhere travel to Mexicali to get treatment at Almater. “In a quarter of a century, it (Almater Hospital) has become one of the main private health centers in the country,” the mayor stated.

Almater Hospital offers several medical specialties. The most popular medical services among American patients and other medical tourists are orthopedic surgery, cosmetic surgery, geriatric services, bariatric surgery and fertility services, including in vitro fertilization (IVF).

Almater Hospital offers facial surgery and breast surgery as well as other types of reconstructive or aesthetic surgery, such as liposuction and abdominoplasty, commonly known as a “tummy tuck.”

Bariatric surgery performed at Almater includes gastric bypass, gastric banding, commonly known as lapband, gastric sleeve, gastric balloon, and gastric plication.

The in vitro fertilization center, Mexico Fertility Center, located at Almater Hospital utilizes several methods including intrauterine insemination (IUI), intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) and frozen embryo replacement cycle (FERC).

Orthopedic surgery is one of the leading areas attracting international patients to Mexicali. Hip replacements, knee replacements, shoulder surgery, elbow surgery, spine surgery and a wide variety of other orthopedic surgery options are available at Almater Hospital from leading orthopedic surgeons.

Affordable pricing is what attracts patients from the U.S. and Canada to Mexicali. Patients at Almater Hospital report savings of 50% to 80% when compared to U.S prices. Consider that the average price for a knee replacement in the U.S is $34,000. The same surgery at Almater Hospital in Mexicali is $10,000. A bariatric gastric bypass surgery can cost $25,000 or more in the U.S. At Almater Hospital, a gastric bypass surgery is approximately $11,000. A facelift and neck lift combination can cost $11,000 or more in the United States. This same surgery is only $5,000 at Almater Hospital.
