Ms Pswarayi concludes, “Our goal now is to get to work getting the credentials we need to make sure MedTours Africa is the first choice option for patients seeking international treatment. We want to expand our portfolio by adding partner hospitals in other tourist destinations and we also hope to extend our services to clients outside our boarders and in sub Saharan Africa in the not so distant future…” With their promise to go above and beyond the average level of service to create an emotional impact on the receiver by facilitating for safe, comfortable, reasonably priced medical tourism packages and bringing these to the doorsteps of the Zimbabwean public, MedTours Africa looks by all indications to be a welcome addition to the Zimbabwean healthcare system.
