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

"Medical services in Nassau, are generally of good quality, with several well-equipped hospitals and clinics available for both residents and tourists. The main healthcare facility is the Princess Margaret Hospital, which offers a wide range of services, including emergency care, surgery, and specialized treatments. There are also private hospitals and clinics, such as Doctors Hospital, which provide high-quality care and shorter waiting times. However, more complex medical procedures or specialized treatments may require travel to the United States or other countries, as not all services are available locally. It is essential for visitors to have comprehensive travel insurance to cover any medical expenses, as healthcare costs can be high. Pharmacies are well-stocked, and most medications are readily available, but it is recommended to bring a sufficient supply of any prescription medications when traveling to Nassau," explained one expat living in Nassau, Bahamas.

"The majority of people who can afford insurance use the local private hospital as a reference to have any real work done in the US. Probably the most advanced procedure you can have here with accuracy is MRI/CAT scans. From there, you are diagnosed and sent to US for treatment," said another expat in Nassau, Bahamas.
