TURKS AND CAICOS TARGETS FAST-GROWING HEALTH TRAVEL SEGMENT WITH NEW PARTNERSHIP
Turks & Caicos Reservations partners with Prime Sports Medicine to Develop Medical Tourism to the Destination PROVIDENCIALES, Turks and Caicos Islands – May 21, 2013 – Turks and Caicos Reservations – a locally based vacation booking service focused exclusively on the Turks & Caicos Islands, today announced that it has entered into a strategic partnership with Prime Sports Medicine to bring more patients seeking overseas surgery to the Turks and Caicos. The partnership will make travel planning to the destination a simple and informative process, opening the door to the high quality, affordable treatments and procedures available from PSM, which are often priced at less than a third of the same procedures in the US.
Having booked thousands of vacations to the destination over the past four years, locally-based Turks and Caicos Reservations is now helping the world-renowned sun, sand and sea destination expand into this new market segment, which the World Travel and Tourism Council estimates has grown to be a $6 trillion business annually.

"We’re thrilled to leverage our years of experience booking vacations to the Turks and Caicos Islands for patients looking for high-quality treatments in a tropical paradise. Whether travelers are looking for a small inn, full-service beachfront resort, or luxury villa experience for their pre- or post-surgical care, we'll have them covered, and can offer appropriately-based rejuvenation package options as well," said Val Kalliecharan, founder of Turks & Caicos Reservations.

The island-based partnership makes planning and having an overseas surgery in Turks and Caicos a very attractive and accessible alternative, particularly to Canadians who sometimes face long wait times for their surgery, as well as patients in the US where procedures can be very expensive.

Dr. Joe LeMoine of Prime Sports Medicine remarked, "We're pleased to be able to offer patients wanting to come to Turks and Caicos for major and minor arthroscopic surgery of the knee and shoulder to have the ability to engage with local health travel specialists that can give them first-hand information and book accommodations for themselves and their support group, as well as soft-activities they can enjoy while on the island. The Turks and Caicos Reservations team offers a first class service, the agents are extremely professional and are 100% dedicated to customer service -- all the qualities we pride ourselves on so it was without hesitation that we wanted to work with their team."
