- Why Choose Sharp?
Sharp HealthCare offers emergency medical evacuation to those who become ill or injured while traveling in Mexico, as well as to Americans living across the border. Read one patient’s story below and learn how Sharp HealthCare helped him get the care he needed during a medical emergency.
Judith Fulginiti and her husband were Americans living in Rosarito, Mexico when Mr. Fulginiti had a medical emergency. Judith’s husband was transferred to a Sharp hospital after being in critical condition at a hospital in Mexico. Read this story, written in Judith’s own words, about the couple’s experience with Sharp HealthCare’s International Patient Transfer program.
When my husband was in critical condition in the hospital in Rosarito, and it was clear that he needed to be rushed across the border to an American hospital, medical personnel contacted Sharp HealthCare’s International Patient liaison.
The liaison took care of all the arrangements from having an ambulance waiting for us at the border to making sure the hospital knew we were coming. They got my husband right into the emergency room where he was treated with the expertise and kindness that was so needed and reassuring in this time of crisis. We had no idea this service even existed until we found ourselves having to deal with a medical emergency and wondering how in the world we would get to U.S. hospital.
We would recommend Sharp HealthCare and their International Patient Transfer program whole-heartedly to any American traveling or living in Mexico.
Thank you for your incredible service!
