Global Health Voyager Announces Development of Medical Tourism Smartphone App

BEVERLY HILLS, CA--(Marketwire - Jan 31, 2012) - Global Health Voyager, Inc. (OTCBB: GLHV), a publicly-traded, full-service, international medical tourism company, today announced that it has begun development of a Medical Tourism related smart phone application (the "App").

The App is being designed to allow potential patients to select a procedure that they may need in the near future, ranging from minor cosmetic surgery to major procedures such as hip replacement. The App will then offer the patient comparisons of the average cost of the procedure domestically compared to several overseas destinations at accredited hospitals. The patient will have the option to learn more about specific hospitals and other related accommodations through rich content, including medical specialties and videos. If the patient chooses, he will be assigned a case manager to take him through the process of reviewing options and ultimately booking the procedure along with travel and accommodations, all through Global Health Voyager.

"In today's healthcare environment, patients are taking greater control over their medical decisions. They are aware of available domestic and international options. In many cases it benefits the patient to have a procedure done elsewhere, after weighing the cost, recovery time, and quality of service," said Ali Moussavi, CEO of Global Health Voyager.

Global Health Voyager continues to add state-of-the-art medical facilities to its network, providing patients with a comprehensive list of institutions world-wide where they can seek high quality medical care. The primary variable is the level of care followed by the cost associated with the trip and the procedure. An added benefit of medical travel is the fact that the patient and his/her companion(s) will be able to take advantage of luxurious accommodations for recuperation, as well as attractive opportunities for sightseeing and relaxation.
