The Executive Physical & Wellness Program
NASSAU, Bahamas – December 14, 2012 – As we prepare to ring in the New Year, nearly half of all Americans will make a resolution and commit to making a positive change in their life. According to the University of Scranton’s Journal of Clinical Psychology, three of the five most popular resolutions for 2013 involve a healthier lifestyle. Americans will vow to become more fit, improve their health and lose weight. The bad news is that these vows will have an overall success rate of only eight percent.
Just 30 minutes from Florida’s east coast, the Bahamas Medical Center, in Nassau, Bahamas is on a mission to help Americans keep their health and fitness resolutions. Through the innovative Executive Physical & Wellness Program, the Bahamas Medical Center aims to provide hard-working executives, busy parents and active individuals an opportunity to make their health a priority at an extremely affordable price. With savings of 60 percent compared to routine physical exams performed in U.S. hospitals, the executive physical program at the Bahamas Medical Center provides reliable, evidence-based preventative screenings to uncover health risks that may affect a patient’s long-term wellness and develop a personalized plan to minimize or eliminate those risks.
The Executive Physical & Wellness Program is a comprehensive head-to-toe evaluation that includes a full range of preventative screening tests for early detection of cancer, heart and lung disease, as well as a variety of other serious medical conditions. Performed by the top, bilingual physicians at the Bahamas Medical Center, the program also includes complete evaluations by leading experts in nutrition, fitness, and personal and executive coaching to ensure that each patient receives the most thorough health and wellness screening.
“We have combined world-class medical and wellness services to provide our international patients with the most comprehensive Executive Physical & Wellness Program available,” said Barry Rassin, President of Doctors Hospital Health System and the Bahamas Medical Center. “At the Bahamas Medical Center, we understand that our American patients lead very busy lifestyles and can’t afford to put their lives on hold to schedule an intensive array of health exams. This is precisely why our executive physical health program is so appealing. Our international patients can take care of their health in 1-2 days, at our island location for one affordable flat rate. And while they are here in the beautiful Bahamas, they can extend their getaway and enjoy the island’s natural beauty and culture.”
What sets the Bahamas Medical Center’s Executive Physical & Wellness Program apart from other programs is the unsurpassed level of service provided by its International Patient Concierge. From booking travel accommodations to scheduling doctor appointments and managing transportation, the International Patient Concierge at the Bahamas Medical Center goes above and beyond to ensure a hassle-free executive health experience.
All comprehensive screening tests and physical exams are custom-tailored to each patient’s age, gender, personal and family medical history, and other health risk factors. As part of the evaluation, each patient will have a personal consultation with a Board-Certified physician to discuss his or her test results, diagnostic impression and treatment recommendations. A comprehensive report of each patient’s results will be sent via email within seven days after the physical exam.
