Maritime Medicine Institute

Providing comprehensive, convenient and efficient medical care to the maritime industry since 1974

Maritime Medicine Institute provides comprehensive, convenient and efficient medical care to the crew members of cruise ships, shipping vessels and yachts. Our experienced team of service representatives and medical professionals are dedicated to meeting the special needs of the maritime industry.

Serving the maritime industry since 1974, The CGHIM Maritime Medicine Institute recognizes that providing excellent and timely service to you and your crew members is quite different from providing excellent service to members of the community. We know that your time in port is brief and departure delays represent lost time, productivity and money. That’s why we have designated multiple locations in the Dominican Republic to serve. These modern facilities provide full-service diagnostic and clinical services, all under one roof.

We respect your commitment to your crews’ health and well-being. We know that happy and healthy employees are productive employees. Our goal is to provide quality patient care that results in superior clinical outcomes. Our team of internationally certified physicians and specialists, nurses and support staff are dedicated to providing that quality care in a timely manner, so your crew can get back to the ship quickly.
