I've meant to post this rave/review for a long while now. My husband and I travelled to Provo this past January with another couple and their infant daughter. On our last day of vacation, I had a REALLY clumsy and stupid accident in the kitchen of our vacation condo, that resulted in a deep laceration to my hand. I was bleeding a lot and it was obviously a serious injury that would need stitches (uhh, LOTS). It was completely my fault, and I felt like a prize idiot. Anyway, my husband (a doctor) assessed the wound and was really worried about how we would get adequate care for it, not being familiar with the island and the medical facilities. We called our resort concierge and they recommended that we take a taxi to Grace Bay Medical, an urgent care facility which is located in the Neptune Plaza near the Graceway Gourmet IGA, only minutes away. They called us a cab and we dashed over there with my hand wrapped in a towel.
The office was small but clean, and we were taken immediately into the back. Right away I was impressed with the facility, and my husband was blown away. The facility has two or three rooms which are basically fully-stocked OR's, with ventilators, surgical theaters, the works. We were seen by some nurses, and then they called in the doctor whose name is Sam Slattery. He is a British-trained doctor who is staff there, but also rounds at several resorts nearby. Dr. Slattery was extremely kind, professional, patient and meticulous in his assessment and repair of my hand. He made sure all my nerve function was intact and did a thorough exam; my husband was very pleased. The repair took over 2 hours, and required a two-layer closure with about 30 stitches. He was very attentive to my pain threshold and also was concerned about ensuring the hand would remain immobile during my long return travel the next day. He set me up with a splint, bandages, sling, the works.
The fees for all the services weren't cheap, but honestly it was about the same as I would have been billed (or would have been billed to my insurance) back home.
Oh and there's a pharmacy right next door if you need any medications; the doctor put me on some antibiotics to prevent infection, which they procured for me right away next door.
Just wanted to share that if anyone is planning a stay in Grace Bay, you may want to take note that this facility is nearby just in case of an emergency. And if Dr. Slattery is reading this - thanks again for everything. My hand is perfectly healed now!
