In keeping with the original spirit of the formation of the The Heart Institute of the Caribbean, the new state of the art Heart Hospital takes cardiac care to the next level of heart health for all patients in the region. Our commitment to residents and international visitors in the Caribbean remains our number one goal.
Best in Class Medical Care
HIC has pioneered advances in cardiovascular care and introduced new diagnostic and treatment options that were previously deemed impossible in the Caribbean. We have changed the approach to the treatment of heart attack and cardiac arrest patients, ensuring that immediate response and intervention are available 24/7.
Diabetes is prevalent in Jamaica and the wider Caribbean and often leads to severe peripheral vascular disease with devastating consequences like limb amputations. We have established the first program in the Caribbean focusing on prevention of limb amputation using aggressive early noninvasive and interventional techniques.
HIC offers the best in class medical care in the region. We have a team of internationally respected Physicians supported by highly skilled and experienced nurses and technicians. We offer the latest technology for bettER, safER and fastER care delivery and so provide excellent outcomes consistently and reliably.
HIC recognizes that heart disease risks are prevalent in women and yet only scant attention is paid to women and heart disease. We have established a robust program focusing on women to address issues of heart disease specific to women like pregnancy related heart diseases.
