Canada debates growing trend in private surgical centres:

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

A trend towards privately delivered healthcare in Canada has led to fears of a two-tier healthcare system where only the affluent can afford timely surgeries, reports Canadian Healthcare Technology. John Blaylock, the owner of a new Can$5m (US$4.4m) private surgical centre in British Columbia, says that the "public system is failing patients" and that "excessively long surgical wait lists" are making an alternative necessary. Surgeries offered at the high-tech Blaylock Surgical Centre include: general, hernia repairs, orthopaedic, and plastic surgeries. It has plans to offer hip and knee surgeries in the near future.
