Medical Services in Majuro

We've been testing the medical systems all around the pacific.
  • stitches and attempted blood donation in Mexico
  • tetanus shot in Samoa
And we've been thrilled to find great services everywhere we have been. Why not check out the system here? John's had a sore throat for a couple months. It hasn't responded to home care - salt water gargles, throat lozenges, antihistamines, or a course of antibiotics.

He decided it was probably cancer. So yesterday, he trekked to the local hospital. He met a
wonderful surgeon from Chicago, who immediately scheduled him for a something-scope for this morning. Dr. Kwan led John to the various hospital departments, and then set about sticking a long scope down his throat and into his stomach. Thankfully, he gave John the all clear. John reports that the hospital was in good condition, for the most part. Nevermind that he changed into his surgical gown in a linen closet, or that he noticed the roof had a few holes in the prenatal unit. The operating room was spotless and well equipped. Both visits were $17.
