Who We Are

MEDICAL ASSOCIATES HOSPITAL is a private health institution located in St. Joseph, the first capital city of Trinidad. In 1979, our facility started as a small 12-bedded institution, in a renowned great house, standing on St. Joseph Hill, overlooking the majestic Samaan trees of George Earle Park. Today, our bed capacity is 50 and this makes us one of the larger private health facilities in the Eastern Caribbean.


This expansion has seen growth in physical infrastructure with the provision of dedicated areas for Outpatients’ clinics, Laboratories, Cardiac laboratory, X-Ray, Ultrasound, CT, MRI imaging and an ICU facility.


Over the years, we have achieved significant expansion in the number of specialty services offered and in the number of highly qualified medical personnel utilizing our facilities, making MEDICAL ASSOCIATES HOSPITAL the provider of a most comprehensive array of services. As a leader in private hospital care in the Caribbean, we have recorded the first successful private renal transplant and the first successful in vitro fertilization (IVF) pregnancy. Some surgical operations first described in the medical literature were pioneered at MEDICAL ASSOCIATES HOSPITAL.


There are four operating rooms - for general as well as microscopic surgeries, laparoscopy, arthroscopy, laser ophthalmic surgery and endoscopy.


We look forward to welcoming you to our facilities and to speak with our staff in order to get a first hand experience of our commitment to quality and patient care.
