Under the partnership, foreign patients who are flying to the Philippines to obtain medical treatment at TMC will get a complimentary Smart LTE Tourist SIM, which they can activate upon arrival in the country. Medical tourists may enjoy up to 1GB of data with each Smart LTE Tourist SIM, which comes with 300MB data valid for three days, plus 700MB data reward when they top up at least Php30 within three days of activation.
With this SIM, users may rely on Smart’s newest and fastest LTE network to enjoy ready access to all the information and practical apps they need for a smooth stay in the country – they may update their family and friends about their condition, keep tabs on local and international news, and enjoy their favorite dose of mobile content as they recover from their treatment.
“The Smart LTE Tourist SIM is our sweet treat for medical tourists who come to experience world-class healthcare at The Medical City. Through it, we aim to provide them all the mobile services they need for a meaningful and memorable stay in the Philippines,” said Gabby Cui, Head of Community Development and Partnerships.
“We at The Medical City are committed to doing all we can to make our patients’ stay at the hospital as comfortable and pleasant as possible. With this partnership with Smart Telecommunications, we are offering our patients a great option to stay connected with their loved ones while they’re away from home,” said Jay Bengzon, TMC Vice President for Marketing.
