Philadelphia International Medicine (PIM) and Main Line Health signed an agreement this week to provide international patients and physicians access to Main Line Health’s hospitals.

PIM connects patients from around the world with the Philadelphia region’s leading hospitals and health systems, helping international patients to navigate the American healthcare system by coordinating everything from scheduling appointments and transferring medical records to arranging hotel accommodations and securing visas.

“We are thrilled to be joining forces with Philadelphia International Medicine, and see this as a gateway for international patients and physicians to take advantage of the high-quality, internationally-renowned care provided at Lankenau Medical Center and across our Health System,” said Phillip D. Robinson, President of Lankenau Medical Center, part of Main Line Health. “Our physicians’ skill and talent attract patients from across the globe — particularly in the areas of cardiovascular care and colorectal cancer — and this program will further enhance our abilities to care for our international patients.”

Not only has Lankenau Medical Center been recently named one of the nation’s 50 Top Cardiovascular Hospitals by IBM Watson Health, it has also been recognized by U.S. News & World Report as being among the top five hospitals in the Philadelphia region, as well as one of the top 10 hospitals in Pennsylvania. Additionally, it has received service-specific recognition for colorectal cancer and cardiovascular treatment from nationally recognized quality organizations, including The Joint Commission, Truven Health Analytics, and the National Accreditation Program for Rectal Cancer (NAPRC).

In addition to world-renowned clinical programs, Lankenau Medical Center also offers private inpatient suites with a personal concierge, deluxe amenities, chef-prepared gourmet meals, and private living and dining areas to accommodate patients and their families who are looking for added comfort in an elegant healing environment.

“Main Line Health will complement our network of some of the greatest medical institutions in the Philadelphia area,” said Edgar Antístenes Vesga-Arias, President and CEO of Philadelphia International Medicine. “We look forward to working with key, premier physicians at Main Line Health who have already begun great work in international medicine. In addition, Main Line Health’s location in the suburbs gives our patients a different environment outside the city and access to relatives who may live there.”
