    Question The Quality of Medical in the DR?

    Hi all,

    I just wanted to ask a question about medical care in the DR. I only asked because something happened to me in a hospital in some 3rd world country somewhere that really ****ed me off. This is a private hospital by the way that did this too me.

    Where are the best hospitals in Santiago and Santo Domingo situated? how do they compare with 1st world countries like the UK which by my standards is amongst the best I have ever had and efficient?

    Thanks

    HOMS in Santiago is really good. Modern, very up to date. There are now the following places where I would go if in bad shape:
    HOMS
    Centro Medico Cibao
    Clinica Corominas
    Union Medica

    Do they accept most insurances. For example Humano ARS

    Hospital Metropolitano de Santiago (HOMS) does.

    Right now, HOMS is the most modern hospital in the entire Caribbean. That place has become the focus of medical tourism, particularly from Puerto Ricans wanting quality health care for less money.

    Default question,.

    if a person is in DR and has NO medical insurance and something happens to them around how much would it cost... i know it depends on what happened to you but lets say you require stitches..or u have a broken bone...

    (I have heard that it will be thousands and thousands of dollars and that your home country will loan it to you or something....something along those lines ...is this true?)

    Can you please let us know which "home country" provides loans of this nature...most curious. Highly unlikely I would have to say.

    Travellers are expected to be repsonsible for themselves when abroad (although not always the case!!!).

    i was talking about Canada...im in the travel and tourism program and we have to learn about insuracne and such....so i dont know what the organization is called but it is located in Ottawa...and has a 24/7 phone line (not toll-free, i dont think) so that if anything happen and a person doesnt have insurance ...they can call ..but im wondering if there is another cheaper way to do it ..instead of paying close to 50,000 (thats wat they said would be the cost)

    Yes...take travel insurance prior to leaving on your trip! It is widely available and very easy to purchase!!
