A new medical centre has also recently been opened in Blue Hills, Providenciales. Some of the health services provided at the centres include emergency care, dental, dialysis, internal medicine, surgical, orthopedic, obstetric and endoscopic procedures, physiotherapy and diagnostic imaging. Tele–medicine is also currently being introduced to improve inter island healthcare delivery.

Providenciales also has a number of private general practitioners and all of the other islands have community clinics.
