What are emergency services like in Paradise Island?

Answer this Question

When we asked members about emergency services in Paradise Island, they wrote...

"Both hospitals are on New Providence in the city of Nassau. They are the only two hospitals for the Bahamas. they are fairly close from Paradise Island, maybe 10 minutes. Both Princess Margaret (no insurance) and Doctors (treat people with insurance) are directly across from each other. Emergency services vary depending on your location. Hotels and resorts get a small priority. Personally, I would not rely on them, rather get to the hospital myself. Quality of care is decent at both. Wait times at PM are extremely long. Expect long delays in service and any medical attention. Doctors is fairly smooth but don't expect to be treated without insurance or a ton of cash. PM and Doctors are both public. There are many private providers on the island," explained one expat living in Paradise Island, Bahamas.

"Emergency services in Paradise Island are similar to those in other countries, with ambulances, fire services, and police available to respond to emergencies. To call for an ambulance, you would need to dial the local emergency number, which is 911 or 919. Once connected, you can provide your location and details of the emergency, and the appropriate services will be dispatched to assist you," said another in Paradise Island, Bahamas.
