How are healthcare services in Saipan?

Answer this Question

When we asked expats and global nomads about the quality of medical care in Saipan, they replied...

"Healthcare services in Saipan, the largest island of the Northern Mariana Islands, are relatively limited compared to larger countries. The main healthcare facility on the island is the Commonwealth Health Center, which provides a range of services, including emergency care, inpatient and outpatient services, and specialty clinics. However, the hospital has faced challenges in terms of funding, staffing, and resources, which can impact the quality of care provided. In addition to the Commonwealth Health Center, there are several private clinics and medical offices on the island, offering primary care, dental care, and other specialized services. Some of these clinics are staffed by visiting physicians and specialists from other countries, who provide care on a temporary basis. Despite the availability of these healthcare services, residents of Saipan may still face challenges in accessing timely and appropriate care. This is due to factors such as limited resources, a shortage of healthcare professionals, and the remote location of the island. In some cases, patients may need to travel off-island to receive specialized care or treatment that is not available in Saipan. Overall, while healthcare services in Saipan are available to residents, there are ongoing challenges in ensuring that these services are accessible, comprehensive, and of high quality. Efforts to improve healthcare infrastructure and attract more healthcare professionals to the island are essential for addressing these challenges and ensuring the health and well-being of Saipan's residents," explained one expat living in Saipan, the United States.

"Find out before coming if your current insurance is accepted by anyone here. I found that not all clinics accepted Blue Cross, which surprised me! Many locals travel to Guam or the Philippines for serious medical procedures, so keep that in mind if you are not in good health, or would not be able to travel to get care," said another expat in Saipan, US.
