First medical tourism surgery in the British Virgin Islands

 

The first ever surgery on a medical tourist in the BVI was neurological treatment on an American in June 2016.

The BVI Health Services Authority (BVIHSA) seeks to attract medical tourism patients go to the British Virgin Islands (BVI) for medical treatment at the state-owned Peebles Hospital.

The patient from Virginia underwent a neurological surgery, performed by a team of visiting specialists from the USA working for Atlantic Clinic, providing specialty services for people unable to afford treatment in the USA

The BVIHSA and the Ministry of Health and Social Development, have been exploring the possibility of bringing medical tourism into the territory since the opening of the New Peebles Hospital in 2014.
