“From the nursing staff, the maintenance staff, all the way up to doctors, Juan Luis Hospital has a real commitment to quality care for our community and their patients.”
“What this hospital did for my wife who was suddenly struck with shingles in her left eye, from the doctors down to all the nurses, was outstanding!”
“My daughter was born at 25 weeks, one pound and 13.4 ounces and stayed right here at the Gov. Juan F. Luis Hospital’s NICU.The care that the doctors, nurses and entire staff provided, made it comfortable enough for me to leave at night and return the next day knowing that they’re properly equipped and knowledgeable enough to take care of my daughter.”
JFL is committed to providing our patients with quality medical services. For your convenience, all patients admitted to JFL will receive an information package containing a statement regarding Patient’s Rights and Responsibilities, and an Insurance Notice. There is also information pertaining to any complaints or concerns you may have. Copies of these documents are also posted in various areas throughout the hospital.
At JFL, we encourage diversity and inclusion. To make our patients feel more comfortable, we have employed a staff with many different backgrounds. They speak diverse languages, including American Sign Language, Arabic, Chinese, Danish, Dutch, French, German, Hindu, Patois, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, and more.
To assure that our patients’ wishes are followed in regards to their care, we recommend that patients execute advance directives with the assistance of an attorney. In the event that the patient becomes incapacitated, their decisions will still be respected and they will receive the ethical and legal rights they are due.
As a patient, you are entitled to rights regarding the confidentiality of your health information. HIPAA, also known as the Heath Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, is a law that explains how your health information is accessed, used, and disclosed. HIPAA dictates matters regarding certain topics such as Hospital Privacy Notice and Patients privacy rights. If you would like more information, please contact the Office of Corporate Compliance at (340) 778 – 6311, ext 2728.
Patients that visit JFL are asked to complete a Consent form authorizing treatment. The form is explained to the patient, and it is the patient’s decision whether they choose to sign the request for treatment. If additional consent forms are necessary, such as in the event of surgery or special procedures, the admitting physician or surgeon/diagnostician will explain. If the patient refuses to sign the Consent form, the admitting physician may authorize the admission if they feel that it is vital to the patient.
Once you have been admitted, a room will be assigned to you based on your medical diagnosis and any specific resources needed for your treatment. Most standard rooms will have a telephone, Cable TV, and nurse call system.
Each patient’s room has a telephone so that you can easily communicate with family and friends during your stay at the hospital. The telephone is located on the night stand and the extension number is on the phone. The main hospital number to call is (340) 778-6311. Our operators can connect family and friends to a patient’s room or you can dial the extension to be automatically connected.
Each room is furnished with a television with cable access. Channel #3 lists featured hospital information for your convenience.
Each patient’s bedside and restroom are equipped with a nursing calling system, so that our nursing staff can assist you.

Internists are imperative to the diagnosis and nonsurgical treatment of a range of illnesses and diseases. They are trained to diagnose and treat more complex illnesses, including a wide range of multi-system diseases. Our internists work with you to coordinate all your health care needs so that you can have access to the care and information you need to get better. They care for patients who are typically severely ill. These skilled physicians combine their extensive training and experience to choose a treatment plan that best suits your individual needs.
Internists are not limited to one specialized area of medicine, and instead address the overall health of their patients. They tend to care for a patient throughout the various stages of life. Internists treat internal disorders, such as diabetes, heart disease, or problems in the gastrointestinal tract. They also treat common health problems, such as infections, illnesses, or chronic diseases. They monitor the patient’s condition and refer patients to specialists if necessary.
The pharmacy at JFL Hospital is an important part of the health care team that manages the dispensing of prescription medications to those suffering from temporary or ongoing conditions. We are dedicated to our patients and provide the most effective and necessary medications to help them recover quickly.
We not only dispense medications, but we also provide knowledge and information for our patients. We explain to them the purpose of their medication and help ensure that the patient remains safe and healthy while taking it. We maintain complete medical records, medical history information, and medical orders. Our hope is that our patients are able to easily get the help they need on their journey to optimal health.
