The Worldwide Emergency Communications Center
From any location in the world, members have direct access to a GHS physician via our in-house "Worldwide Emergency Communications Center" or WECC. The WECC is staffed by medically trained operators who assist our physicians and clients during the medical consultation process by providing dedicated logistic and communication support. The WECC ensures that GHS members have immediate access via phone, email, video or fax to emergency medicine physicians as well as over 550 specialty physicians for remote consultation, medical direction and advice.
Don’t let travel limit your access to quality medical care
While away from home medical concerns often arise that need immediate medical attention. Unfortunately, your primary care doctor or health insurance may not always be able to help you. From avoiding a hospital visit in Bangkok, providing expert level knowledge for exposed workers in an overseas location or discussing the need for a swine flu vaccination, as a GHS member you don’t have to let travel limit your access to quality medical care.
