After her years of hard work and dedication, it is a proud moment for the Health Services Authority (H.S.A.) to announce that Caymanian physician, Dr. Ciara Best, has joined their physician team.

Dr. Best, who has recently returned home to begin her practice, is a graduate of John Gray High School.  She received her M.B.B.S. from the University of the West Indies, Mona Campus and will spend some time with the H.S.A. before heading off again to specialize.

Prior to joining the Health Services Authority, Dr. Best interned at Cornwall Regional Hospital in Jamaica where she rotated through Internal Medicine, General Surgery, OB/GYN and Pediatrics departments for a period of three months each.

She had previously spent six months as the Senior House Officer in Pathology and has also worked in the Accident and Emergency department.

Dr Best said that she is delighted to have returned home and joined the team at the HSA, having achieved her goal of becoming a qualified physician.   “The welcome by both staff and patients has been a very warm one and I am glad to have been able to return home and to be of service to the people.”

Dr. Best currently works on the Medical Ward where she oversees the management of care for many of the patients there.

HSA Medical Director, Dr.  Greg Hoeksema, and Chief Executive Officer, Ms. Lizzette Yearwood are both extremely proud to welcome another returning Caymanian doctor to the team. “Dr. Best is a wonderful and talented asset and we look forward to her input in the years ahead.  We are confident that she will continue to enhance our services and we are grateful that she has chosen to practice medicine with us,” said Ms Yearwood.
