Announcing The First Hospital In The World To Accept Steem!
Imaxess is now the first hospital & clinic in the world to accept steem & SBD for payment!
As many of you know, I'm traveling through Mexico right now.
Along the way I've been looking up all of my friends, family and business associates, hell anyone that will listen to me! and talking to them about steem and just how revolutionary this platform is. My end goal here is to spread the steemit message and get as many real live businesses as I can to accept SBD directly for payment.
Today I talked with my good friend Dr Eduardo Padilla. I've known him literally for I don't even know how many years. He's the Director and primary shareholder of Imaxess which is a hospital and outpatient clinic in Tijuana.
Imaxess was the first hospital in the entirety of Mexico to have MRI & CT facilities. They were also first in the WORLD to accept bitcoin for payment. They have one of the only bitcoin ATMs in Baja California thanks to @alechahn
Now they are they are the first to accept steem and SBD thanks to your's truly!
This facility has been on the cutting edge of medicine for over 20 years! Dr Padilla is a well known radiologist and he literally wrote the book on both radiology and tele-medicine. He's a noted lecturer and speaker as well.
I've convinced him to come here and run the account @imaxess himself. He will be blogging about the latest happenings in healthcare and creating content exclusively for steemit.
He also teaches aspiring young doctors and medical students and will be encouraging them to enroll in steemit. He will be using steemit as a teaching platform and leveraging the power of social media for education and outreach. We also talked today about something else that is huge and I can't disclose, but MAN I'M DYING TO!!!
I believe what he has in the works will revolutionize medical care as we know it!
I can't tell you how unbelievably huge this is!!!
Starting on Monday you can spend your SBD, dollar for dollar for qualified, competent medical care in a world class medical facility. But this is only the beginning...
Imaxess is the flagship of a chain of hospitals in baja, so this is the first of many, many hospitals that will be accepting steem!
I'll be updating their billing system over the weekend to accommodate SBD, I'm sorting out how to integrate the blocktrades API right now. So if anyone from blocktrades could chime in, that would be lovely.
If you happen to be in Mexico and would like to drop by any time after Monday morning, here's a map...
