North West Regional Health Authority

The North West Regional Health Authority (NWRHA) is responsible for the most populated area of Trinidad and Tobago and is therefore charged with the awesome responsibility of serving the health needs of approximately 500,000 individuals. Also, the socio demographics of the catchment areas under the jurisdiction, including the capital city of Port of Spain and environs, present additional challenges for health care delivery.

The NWRHA administers and manages the
Port of Spain General Hospital, St Ann’s Psychiatric Hospital, St. James Medical Complex and 17 health centres.

The mission of the NWRHA is to provide a comprehensive, compassionate and equitable quality health care in an environment of dignity and respect. 
See below for Hospitals and Health Centres operating under the NWRHA.
