We asked retirees if they have access to good medical care in Bahamas. They wrote...

"Bahamian healthcare services are provided by a combination of public and private providers including hospitals, clinics and medical centers. Public health services are available at no or affordable cost for Bahamians, while non-Bahamians may be required to pay a fee for services. Primary healthcare is accessible through various connections including family doctors, nurses, technicians and medical assistants. Specialists and medical equipment are available at larger hospitals located in major towns and cities. Additionally, there are several private medical facilities located throughout The Bahamas. Vaccinations for a variety of common illnesses including measles, mumps and rubella are available at clinics throughout the islands. Telemedicine is also available with home visits available in some cases," said a member in Bahamas.

"There are several clinics on the island as well as two large hospitals (one public and one private). We are also very close to Miami should you need a second opinion on something more serious. I personally have used the clinics and private hospital here without any issues. Most of the doctors are trained abroad and are quite competent," remarked another expat who made the move to New Providence, Bahamas.
