Barbados Hospitals and Clinics


Boasting two major hospitals, over 20 clinics and a handful of experienced medical laboratories, the island of Barbados has a well established health care sector.

The two major Barbados hospitals are the Queen Elizabeth Hospital and BayView Hospital. The Queen Elizabeth Hospital (also known as the QEH) is located in Bridgetown, the capital of Barbados. This 600 bed hospital has been around since 1964. In 2006, the hospital appointed a new CEO, Mr. Winston Collymore. His stated mission is to transform the QEH into one of the best facilities in its class by focusing on many areas, including quality improvement.

BayView Hospital is also located in the parish of St. Michael, just on the outskirts of Bridgetown. This facility began operating in 1989 and is privately owned and operated. In comparison to the QEH, BayView is small, offering 7 private rooms and 4 semi-private rooms. Their small size aside, BayView offers medical care in a number of fields, including: ENT Surgery, Reconstructive Surgery, Urologic Surgery, Neurology and Orthopaedic Surgery.

In support of our hospitals and clinics, Barbados has a variety of medical laboratories offering a wide range of essential testing services and facilities. These labs include:

- Barbados Reference Laboratory
- BCPS Cytology and Pathology Services Inc.
- Chemscreen Laboratory Services Inc.
- Spectrol Medical Laboratories Ltd.
- Western Scientific Co. Ltd

Dentistry in Barbados is also an important sector. The Barbados Dental Association is the governing body on the island, with close to 40 members. The yellow pages section of the phone book gives a detailed listings of dentists and facilities. Specialized dental care is also available, such as Maxillofacial Surgery.

Barbados can also lay claim to a state of the art fertility clinic - the Barbados Fertility Centre. Patients come from all over the world to undergo their IVF treatment in Barbados. For more information on the Barbados Fertility Centre please see our related articles section at the bottom of this page.
