Have you asked your cousin? He should be able to help you get accurate, detailed information. Alternatively, here is the contact information for the hospital on St Thomas: http://www.rlshospital.org/contactus.htm Someone there should be able to help.

There is only one dialysis center on St Thomas, but I believe there are two on St Croix. Your cousin should be able to help you.

Hi,
Advice from an R.N. - I work for the Medicare program.
Try following this link for a 3 dialysis facilities for their locations, contact info, and quality ratings.
http://www.medicare.gov/Dialysis/include/DataSection/Services/CompareServices.asp?StyleChoice_Size=

Click on Compare Dialysis Facilities then enter search by State - choose Virgin Islands and proceed.

Best of luck.
Take Care:-)

"I don't know what your budget is but...... I think flights from St. Thomas to Peurto Rico are only 30min"

You are correct but - the flight is 20-30 mins, you need to be at the airport 90 min before flight time (both locations) and flights are running around $250.00 roundtrip !!!!!

Pia.
