What makes Bucaramanga the ideal destination when looking for high-quality health services outside the USA?

Are you looking for high-quality medical services? If your answer is: yes, the best Colombian hospital in cardiology and the second most important in Latin America for this specialty is located in Bucaramanga:  Fundación Cardiovascular de Colombia (FCV). This recognition was obtained in 2021 according to the ranking of the prestigious magazine America Economía.
On the other hand, the Hospital Internacional de Colombia (HIC), which is part of the FCV medical complex, has more than 50 specialties. Its facilities are equipped with the latest technology available to the local community and foreign patients.
Additionally, it is supported by highly trained professionals with a great background and experience, obtaining exceptional results. 
Bucaramanga offers high-level health options with favorable prices, in specialties such as cardiology, oncology, neurology and neurosurgery, orthopedics, pediatrics, medical check-ups, among others.
Hundreds of people visit us from different parts of the world seeking treatments like  knee and hip replacements, and spine surgeries, chemotherapy and radiotherapy treatments, minimally invasive heart surgeries, Parkinson's surgery, epilepsy surgery, and other treatments for critically ill patients.

The quality of medical services in Bucaramanga is supported by international recognition since the FCV was the first hospital in Colombia to receive certification from the Joint Commission International, the world's leading organization related to quality standards in health care. This is complemented with very competitive market prices. For example:


Besides being one of the cities with many strengths in the health sector, it is also important to highlight the beauty of its mountains, the hospitality of its people, its more than 200 parks, and the warmth of its climate, which ranges from 20°C (69°F) to 27°C (81°F). These were determining factors for the city to adopt the recognition of "La Ciudad Bonita" (The Beautiful City).

Regarding air connectivity, Palonegro International Airport (BGA) is located about 20 kilometers (12 miles) away from downtown Bucaramanga and has direct connections to the U.S., Panama, and major cities in Colombia, making air travel an excellent option for visitors.
