Medical - Medical Granada - Nicaragua

There are three English-speaking doctors in Granada: Dr. Martinez-Blanco, a GP at the Piedra Boconas Clinic (on Parque Sandino across from the Taxi Cooperative), and Dr. Iglesias, whose office is at 10a Calle Atravesada (one and a half blocks north of Karawala Cinema). Dr. Iglesias is more of an internal medicine specialist, but both doctors are good for emergencies of the walk-in kind. A consultation will cost from $7 to $15 US. There is also an English speaking doctor at Medilab - a few doors up from Dr. Iglesias at 10b Calle Atrevesada.

There is also the public Japan-Amistad Hospital, which offers free and prompt emergency services to both nationals and foreigners, but don’t be alarmed if a family of cats or dogs walk by in the examination rooms.

You will need a doctor’s referral for Colcibolca Private Hospital. While all medical services are free, you are expected to pay for your supplies at the pharmacy. On the positive side, you don’t need a formal prescription for medicine and many pharmacists are doctors.

There is also the Centro de Salud (health center) where consultations and medicine is free, but the medication is donated, so be sure to check the expiry dates.
