Furthermore, once a patient is admitted, an International Services staff member will visit the patient on a daily basis to assess the patient’s needs and maintain up-to-date patient status and quality control.
As an added service, the International Services department will render full concierge services including directions, recommendations and reservations for local dining and attractions and suggestions for area shopping.
