Filthy Rich & Cold Blooded

We refer our clients to sources of high quality, deeply discounted pricing. Recently, we approached a large hospital in Oklahoma City to see if they would be interested in joining our network of providers. They replied that they were “not interested”.

One of our other network facilities in Oklahoma, put the following on their blog:

Imagine for a moment that you own a tire store.  A guy calls in and says he would like a new set of Michelin tires and would like to pay cash.  You say,”…no thank you.  We are not interested.”  What?  What kind of story is this?

That is exactly what happened at a local “not-for-profit” facility here in Oklahoma City.  A company that already sends medical tourists to Oklahoma City (to our facility and to two other specialty facilities) loves Oklahoma City’s central location and wanted to establish a relationship with a full service, large hospital here.  Keep in mind all of these patients are paying up front for whatever procedure they are going to have at rates that are profitable.  They are also people who are willing to travel a long way to get care because they are either in a Canadian waiting  line or live in some unfortunately backward place in Africa or Europe where facilities are not available or up to snuff.  Wow!  This is like a mission trip coming to you…you don’t even have to get all the shots for malaria to treat these people….and they are going to pay you up front?  And the facility that said “no” is affiliated with a church.  Ouch.

Why would they do this?  There is only one answer I can come up with.  They already have a ton of money.  They are focused on control at this point….power.  You see alot of guys that are bored billionaires that run for political office…same kind of thing…they have gobs of cash, they want to taste real power.  This hospital system and the folks that run it have demonstrated another point, though, by saying “no.”  They don’t care whether people get care or not.

I think they need to clarify their mission.  Make it more transparent.  Or maybe they just did.

About Us

For the last four years we have been facilitating surgical procedures for clients wishing to access the favorable pricing which we have negotiated with hospitals and clinics across the country.


North American Surgery Inc. is able to access reasonably priced surgical procedures of all types in U.S. based facilities.  Our clients pay a small fraction of the standard prices charged by most U.S. hospitals.  Typically the prices we have negotiated are comparable to the costs associated with off-shore surgery in places such as India, Thailand or Mexico.


The role of our firm is to act as a facilitator, brining our clients together with private medical services and clinics which can provide the needed services and / or procedures in a timely manner. Once arrangements have been made to the mutual satisfaction of our client and their physician, we have no ongoing involvement in the doctor-patient relationship.
