Before joining the Health Services Authority, Dr Best interned at Cornwall Regional Hospital in Jamaica where she rotated through Internal Medicine, General Surgery, OB/GYN and Pediatrics departments for a period of three months each.

She currently works on the Medical Ward  where she oversees the management of care for many of the patients there. Dr Best previously spent six months as the Senior House Officer in Pathology and has also worked in the Accident and Emergency department. Delighted to have returned home and joined the team at the HSA, having achieved her goal of becoming a qualified physician, Dr Best said.   “The welcome by both staff and patients has been a very warm one and I am glad to have been able to return home and to be of service to the people.”

HSA Medical Director, Dr.  Greg Hoeksema, and Chief Executive Officer Lizzette Yearwood said they were  proud to welcome another returning Caymanian doctor to the team.
“Dr. Best is a wonderful and talented asset and we look forward to her input in the years ahead.  We are confident that she will continue to enhance our services and we are grateful that she has chosen to practice medicine with us,” added Yearwood.
