About Bustamante Hospital for Children

The Bustamante Hospital for Children (BHC) has the distinction of being the only specialist pediatric hospital in the English speaking Caribbean.

With a bed capacity of 283, this remarkable institution caters to patients from birth to 12 years, providing a comprehensive range of diagnostic, preventive, curative, rehabilitative and ambulatory services in pediatric medical and surgical specialties and sub-specialties.



The hospital caters to not only patients from across Jamaica, but other neighbouring Caribbean countries.

The facility was formally a British Military Hospital but was given to the Jamaican Government as a ‘Goodwill’ gesture on the achievement of Jamaica’s Independence on August 6, 1962.
