When we asked members about emergency services in Bahamas, 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," remarked another expat who made the move to Paradise Island, Bahamas.

"In the Bahamas, emergency services are available to help people in need. To call for an ambulance, you can dial the emergency number 919 or the local police station. The ambulance will be dispatched to the location of the emergency and will provide medical assistance. The ambulance service is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week," explained one expat living in Bahamas.
