Turks and Caicos Islands Hospital opened in April 2010 with two state-of-the-art secondary healthcare facilities. The Cockburn Town Medical Centre is located on the island of Grand Turk and Cheshire Hall Medical Centre is located on the island of Providenciales. Both sites serve the local population and visitors across the Turks and Caicos Islands chain and have built-in capacity to double in size.
The facility is a public hospital managed by Interhealth Canada TCI Ltd on behalf of the Turks and Caicos Islands Government through a Public-Private Partnership agreement. Services provided at both locations include Accident and Emergency care, General Surgery, Obstetrics and Gynaecology, Orthopaedics, Family Practice, Medical Oncology, Internal Medicine, Secondary Dentistry, Acupuncture, and Outpatient Haemodialysis.
Visiting consultants from North America and the Caribbean region also provide periodic care in the specialties of Nephrology, Urology, Oncology, Neurology, ENT, Ophthalmology and Plastic Surgery. Cheshire Hall Medical Centre has a two-bed High Dependency Unit for patients requiring more intensive monitoring and a Special Care Baby Unit or neonatal intensive care unit for infants in need of specialized care.
