Ship Board Medical Care:

A phone call from the ship’s agent is all we require to deliver medical care when a crew member is injured or falls ill.

Many of the calls we receive involve services that we can deliver aboard your vessel. Our expert medical staff can make onboard ship calls delivering high-quality, fast and convenient care.

In the event that specialty care is required, we will make all necessary arrangements from transporting the patient to the facility and the complete management of the medical care. Our medical team can write and fill prescriptions and even deliver medications to your vessel.

Our service is convenient for patients and cost-effective for the ship’s agent and owner. We also provide extensive laboratory services, imaging, and EKGs in addition to medical care.

When shipboard care is not an option, patients can be taken to the MMS Medical Clinic where our clinical specialists can provide additional medical services in a modern, fully-equipped medical facilities.
