-Boracay Medical Clinics and Hospitals-

There are several Medical Clinics on Boracay and one Hospital. For some tourists planning to come to the island, it’s important to understand the quality and availability of medical care on Boracay. To be frank, most serious or emergency conditions can’t be taken care of on the island and transport will have to be arranged to Kalibo or Manila depending on the nature of the emergency. Think of Boracay like a field triage while you wait to get to a place with proper medical facilities.

For smaller less pressing issues, Boracay has many competent physicians and clinics coupled with pharmacies that will solve most ‘issues of uncomfortable’.  In the event of a serious issue, the local clinics are able to dispatch an ambulance to the event area, and medical land transport, local air transport, or even international medical transport by air can be arranged.
