Healthcare in Grenada
The public healthcare system in Grenada is under the government’s administration. The island also has four private hospitals. However, the quality of care in public hospitals was concerned by many expats. As a result, patients with emergency care needs and advanced medical treatment are often transported to other facilities in the Caribbean or the United States. Expat should obtain international health insurance before entering Grenada. Medical cost for private doctor fees and accessing treatment outside of Grenada can be very expensive.
Expats entering Grenada should check vaccinations updates. Please note that a Yellow Fever vaccination certificate is required from all travellers over one year of age. Bottled water is recommended and is available on the island. Local seafood, fruit and vegetables are considered safe to eat.
