Medical Tourism in Havana?

Two or so weeks ago this blog's comments section saw an interesting debate about medical care in Cuba. Link here. Some were dismayed that I had bought into the anti-Castro propaganda and spoke ill of the wonderful country that is Cuba. Today, in the Wall Street Journal, Mary Anastassia O'Grady offers some inconvenient truths about the state of medical care in Cuba, mixed with some information about the availability of water and electricity. Some of you might have missed her article, so here it is.

The WSJ can cram their pricing structure up their fourth point of contact.

P.S. Suggest to them a pay-per-view approach.

I didn't realize that the article was behind the pay wall. It may not be worth the yearly subscription rate, but it might be worth the price of today's paper.

Anyway, it does offer some good information that points toward your being right....

RE: Again....

.....What about 'Bob'?

Here's another item I'd like Robert Krause to explain away.

If medical care is so GREAT in Cuba, how come all these Cuba doctors are seeking sanctuary in the US if they can get to a US consulate or embassy outside of Cuba?
