Where To Go for the Care You Need
When you’re suddenly feeling sick or have an unexpected injury, you have several options for “immediate” care: HSA Accident & Emergency Department, Urgent Care Walk-in Clinic, and District Health Centres in each District throughout the Cayman Islands.
Do not let the challenge of choosing what facility to go to delay your time in getting the care you need.
Knowing the difference between the facilities and what they offer will make it easier to decide what option is right for you.
