Doctors Hospital, formerly named The Rassin Hospital, was founded in 1955 by the late Dr. Meyer Rassin, a leading orthopedic surgeon who opened the original 20,000 square-foot, 24-bed medical facility. In 1986, a group of Bahamian physicians bought the facility and renamed it Doctors Hospital. In 1993, the hospital completed an $8.5 million, 50,000-square-foot expansion and then became a publicly traded company in 1999. Today, the 72-bed Doctors Hospital is the most modern acute care privately owned health care facility in The Bahamas with over 400 employees.
