DescriptionPart entrepreneur and part activist, North American Specialty Hospital CEO James Polsfut has carved out a business model from the dysfunction of U.S. health care.


Polsfut is the CEO and co-founder of North American Specialty Hospital, which isn’t so much a traditional hospital as it is a rather audacious business plan. His company works with employers across the country looking to lower what they spend on health care for their employees.

All care before and after the surgery or infusion is done in the United States.

But, when it comes time to actually perform the procedure, both doctor and patient get on a plane and head down to Cancún. Rather than facing high out-of-pocket expenses, the employee pays nothing, including for the travel.

The final cost for everything to the company? Half of what it would be in the United States.
