Medical Care on the Dominican Republic North Coast

Medical care is limited, especially outside the bigger cities, and the quality of care varies widely among facilities. A private nationwide ambulance service, “Movi-med,” operates in Santo Domingo, Santiago, Puerto Plata and La Romana; its telephone number is 532-0000 in Santo Domingo and 1-200-0911 outside Santo Domingo. “Movi-med” expects full payment at the time of transport.

In Cabarete and Sosua, the Servi-Med centre can help with emergency medical assistance and are available 24hrs a day. In the Puerto Plata area, there is a well equipped private clinic called “The Bournigal” or “Centro Medico” which has an excellent reputation.
