The Bahamas is home to leading medical specialists with training from some of the top medical institutions in the world. In the Bahamas, you will find doctors to accommodate most every need, including emergency care, acute care and specialists who provide excellent care for medical disciplines including Obstetrics & Gynecology, Internal Medicine, Nephrology, Pediatrics, General Surgery, Psychiatry, Ophthalmology, Urology Infection Diseases, and Orthopedics.

Top 3 Medical Tips for Traveling to the Bahamas:
- Make advance contact with a medical center near your hotel or temporary residence. If you can, fax your medications to a physician in the area.
- In case of any medical concerns, be prepared to articulate what the problem is and what medications are being taken.
- If you’re staying at a hotel, there is often a medical person or nurse associated with that hotel. Find the person and advise them of any medical conditions or concerns. They will let you know if there is a care facility nearby or if they offer services you might need in the event of an emergency.
