Bahamas Medical Center History

Our Beginnings

The Bahamas Medical Center is a division of Doctors Hospital Health System located in Nassau, Bahamas, the only hospital in the Caribbean accredited by the Joint Commission International, representing the highest standards in international medical care.

Doctors Hospital, a globally-recognized private hospital, opened in 1955. Since then, Doctors Hospital has served the medical needs of the Caribbean islands and has become a mecca for savvy medical tourists seeking the exceptional quality medical care at dramatic savings over US prices.

Since 1955, Doctors Hospital has grown into an impressive 50,000 square foot facility with 72 beds, 200 medical specialists and more than 500 staff and associates, serving thousands of patients from around the world every year.

Patients from the US and Canada have made The Bahamas one of the most popular medical tourism destinations in the world. To meet the growing demand from international patients, Doctors Hospital created the Bahamas Medical Center, a full service hospital located near the beach and popular tourist hotels, close to the international airport on the western side of Nassau. This cutting edge medical facility offers the services of world-renowned specialists in a medical facility that was built to cater to the needs of our discriminating international patients.
