When you need care, Omega Medical practitioners focus on getting you back to your vacation or your work quickly. This Jamaica-based practice started in 1997.
With the first tourist-requested home care visit, Dr. Dale Foster learned the value of returning someone to their daily routine or vacation experience using his medical expertise. He expanded his practice to visitors and employees working across the hotel industry. In 2002, Drs. Dale Foster and Sonja King-Foster opened a permanent office adding local access to modern medicine and other important health resources.
By 2005, the doctors’ practice expanded Family Medicine to include Surgery and Women’s’ Care. Omega Medical hired the best trained nurses and placed them close to where people play, work, and live. The Sandals Hotel embraced this unique nurses’ program and by 2009, Omega Medical opened on-site nursing in nine Sandals Hotels. Today, our nurses engage patients 24/7 across 25 major hotel resorts. Practitioners can be seen across Jamaica, St. Lucia, Barbados, Grenada, and Antigua.
Omega Medical focuses on medical tourism for visitors from across the globe and for those that work across the Caribbean. In 2020, we added a new centre in the Iron Shore community of Montego Bay offering health services and specialty dermatological care. By 2021, a new Ambulatory Surgery Centre will open in Negril to provide destination health services for planned procedures and emergencies. Nanny Services for resort guests, Ambulance, and Emergency Care services will remain important offerings across all locations.
