Welcome to Cozumel International Hospital

We treat people...
instead of symptoms.

Bilingual Services

Our doctors and specialists can provide consultations and medical care in English and Spanish. Our front desk staff can answer your questions by phone or in person in both languages, and all of our staff members are here to make you feel at home.

Doctors helping divers

We promote safety by providing free education to dive operators, divers, and medical and emergency care providers from other institutions. Our hospital is staffed by medical doctors who have international diplomas in hyperbaric and diving medicine in addition to their national medical licenses..

Insurance accepted

We accept most major insurance. Our US based help desk helps verify benefits and file claims at no additional cost.

The Cozumel International Hospital provides bilingual medical services on par with top private hospitals in leading countries. Our specialists and medical team are highly regarded not only by patients, but also by their professional peers, and are committed to providing the best patient-centered care possible. Empathy for our patients is a core value of our work. 

The International Hospital has also long been an essential resource for the diving community. We are the flagship of a global network of hyperbaric chambers that have saved countless lives and prevented tragedies related to aquatic and subaquatic incidents.  

I slipped on a rock in the ocean and broke my wrist in 2 places while in Cozumel. This hospital was amazing. The entire staff was compassionate- and when I say the entire staff, I mean all the doctors who saw me, check-in personnel, pharmacy, etc. were very helpful and polite. I speak very limited Spanish, which was not an issue. They re-set my wrist and put a cast on it. I went to a doctor in the states for check-ups and he indicated that my doctors did a great job. I also needed detailed paperwork to submit to my insurance to get reimbursed. They provided it promptly. On another trip, my husband injured his ear diving. We were once again here. Another very positive experience. This hospital definitely exceeded my expectations.

Leaders in Subaquatic Medicine

We established the first hyperbaric chamber in Cozumel in 1987, and our hospital is the flagship of the global SSS Recompression Chamber Network. The chamber is wholly owned by the hospital rather than by an external medical service provider or consortium. This means our hyperbaric doctors are in-house, ready to provide treatment and save lives 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

What our patients say

The care I received from your hospital was world class care. From the equipment you used to the hospital staff, it was easily as good as (and sometimes better) than what I experience in the US. Your entire operation is absolutely phenomenal! Thank you!

— Kathleen M, Patient

I had a serious injury to my leg and ankle and was sent to this hospital by ambulance. This was a very scary accident, with lots of serious decisions to be made while travelling in a foreign country. The staff immediately made us feel welcome and calmed our fears about being in a foreign country and having an injury. My husband was very concerned for me, and the staff and Doctors always kept him aware of my care and involved him in the decisions to be made. I stayed in Cozumel for surgery because I felt like I was in good hands. The nurses were very caring and the support I received was top notch. I was released 36 hours later to be able to fly back to the States Our experience was excellent. Thank you very much!
