ABOUT FREEPORT MEDICAL CENTRE
The Freeport Medical Centre was established in April 2007 with the founder Dr. Rohit Dass dream of providing a comprehensive, complete and technologically savvy medical institution in the central part of Trinidad and Tobago The profession of medicine is growing at an enormously rapid pace in which diagnostic including blood test, X-rays, ultrasounds, endoscopies, CT scanning and now MRI scanning is utilized much more by medical professionals to diagnose and treat patients. Even more important, patients are more demanding and informed of their medical conditions and have a high expectation from their medical institutions to provide the best and latest forms of treatment for their illnesses. Our compassion for treating patients and getting them better motivated us to establish this lovely institution.
“I really believe the only way to stay healthy is to eat properly, get your rest and exercise. If you don’t exercise and do the other two, I still don’t think it’s going to help you that much.”
– Dr. R Dass

About Our CEO
Dr. Rohit Dass, MBBS
The philosophical motto of the scout movement, “be prepared” is the driving force behind Dr. Dass’ long term goal to establish a small private hospital.
Dr. Dass considers himself a family physician with a unique claim that allows him to stand out from the rest. His myriad of achievements commenced at Secondary School. He was the Mathematics Olympiad representing Trinidad & Tobago in 1988. A National scholarship winner in 1989 and graduating from Presentation College in the same year as one of the three most outstanding students.
Competence was also demonstrated in sports as I represented my secondary school in table tennis and cricket. At university, I graduated with honors obtaining my medical degree. I also hold membership to the prestigious AAFP, MAAFP and OGUK examination doctors. To be a member of these organizations Dr. Dass underwent special training pertaining to Oil and Gas Industry and Occupational medicine. These include testing for visual, hearing and lung abnormalities. Patients requiring other tests including, drug testing, blood tests or X-Rays would get the necessary recommendations. He is one of the directors and executive medical officer at Freeport Medical Centre.
Freeport Medical Centre is a one stop facility providing all medical investigations and treatments for our patients. The vision to be opened on a 24 hour basis forms part of our long term strategic plan but our short term plan includes to establish an ambulance service and stress ECG testing. Our intermediary plan is to commission a MRI scanner at Freeport Medical Center.
Aside from my astute leadership at Freeport Medical Center, I also serve my country well since I am a member of the MBCTT, an executive member of the T&TMA and the Vice President of the CMA for 2013-2016.
My passion is treating patients, getting them better, seeing their signs and symptoms dissipate and seeing happiness on their faces. That is my ultimate gratification.
