Continuing our trek across the American Southwest today at The World on Wheels, we hop across the border to snowbird medical mecca, Los Algodones in Mexico, where there are more dentists and opticians per capita than anyplace I know: http://tinyurl.com/28j98zp

A Swiss referendum has overwhelmingly approved suicide tourism. Will many people take Switzerland up on this? And does this count as medical tourism or its opposite?

Jordan, I read about it on eTurboNews, but you're right: When I do a little digging, I see the original story came out in 2009. Why it appeared this morning, I have no idea.

Ed, wasn't that hospital already angling to increase medical tourism, especially for eart and spinal surgery.... or is this something new? If latter, where did you read the latest comments? Thanks.

And now a spokesman for the award-winning Holy Trinity Hospital in Ghana wants to increase medical tourism to that country. Can Ghana, in fact, compete against India, Thailand, Brazil, etc. for medical tourists ?
