Public health services are available free at several public hospitals and dispensaries. There are also private health services available across the island. They feature cutting-edge technology to assist in providing the highest levels of care. These are not free. We recommend taking out health insurance with a Mauritius service provider or investigating maintaining cover with your existing supplier.
Public health facilities in Mauritius include Victoria Hospital in Candos, Sir Seewoosagur Ramgoolam Hospital in Pamplemousses, Dr AG Jeetoo Hospital in Port Louis, Jawaharlal Nehru Hospital in Rose Belle, Flacq Hospital in Flacq, Souillac Hospital in Souillac. There are also public health centres.
Private health services are established across the island. If you prefer private health care, a medical aid policy with a Mauritian insurance company is worth having.
Private clinics and medical centres are open 24/7 across Mauritius. Among the best known are Clinique du Nord in Tombeau Bay, Fortis Clinique Darné in Floreal, Clinique de Grand Baie in Grand Bay, City Clinic in Port Louis, the Nouvelle Clinique Ferrière in Curepipe and Wellkin Hospital in Moka. Fortis Clinique Darné also offers consultations and care services at La Croisette shopping centre in the north.
There are various health insurers on the island offering cover for a spectrum of benefits. The premium will typically depend on age, insured risks and required cover.
