VIDDC State Plan 2016

INTRODUCTION:

A broad overview of the Comprehensive Review and Analysis conducted by the Council. There are two hospitals, one in each district: St. Thomas/St. John/Water Island (STT) district and St. Croix district. STT district is served by the Roy Lester Schneider Hospital and Medical Center (Schneider Hospital). Residents from St. John and Water Island must travel by ferry boat to St. Thomas in order to be treated at the Schneider Hospital. In St. Croix is served by the Juan F. Luis Hospital and Medical Center (Juan Luis Hospital). There are three (3) Public Health clinics. Two are non-profits and one is operated by the Government, with services paid by: private insurance, local medical assistance cards (Medicaid), Medicare or reduced fee services. Due to the lack of a variety of available health care providers in the Virgin Islands, no one is denied available care. As a result the two district hospitals are left with huge financial deficits.
