B.C. mulls high-end health centres for foreigners

By Kelley Luckstein

B.C. Health Minister Kevin Falcon says he has a plan to market health-care services to rich, offshore patients in a similar scheme to one used to sell higher education to foreign students…


Health costs now account for more than 42 per cent of the total B.C. budget. "Nobody even looks at the revenue potential in our system," Falcon said. "Why can't British Columbia be the Mayo Clinic of the north?"
