Knowing where to seek medical attention on vacation is very important, there are, after all, those just-in-case moments. These are the hospitals in Jamaica.

How many hospitals are there in Jamaica?

Jamaica has 24 public hospitals, 10 private ones and many, many private practices all across the country. While I won’t be able to tell you where all the medical services are, here are the hospitals in Jamaica, public and private.

Are Jamaican hospitals good?

Jamaican hospitals are suitable for medical care despite the issues they face with overcrowding and inadequacies with funding.

Jamaican hospitals are operated on behalf of the Ministry of Health and Wellness by the different regional health authorities in Jamaica. These are:

  • South East Regional Health Authority (SERAH)
  • North East Regional Health Authority (NERAH)
  • Southern Regional Health Authority (SRHA)
  • Western Regional Health Authority (WRHA)

Is there a hospital in every parish in Jamaica?

A public hospital is located in every parish in Jamaica. While the services offered are not as comprehensive as Kingston and Montego Bay, most have emergency medical care, maternity wards, prescription drugs, and ambulance services.
