Rehabilitation Institute of the Caribbean

We continue to have a long standing relationship with our patients, because we pride ourselves on being fortunate to have treated and assisted many persons who would otherwise be left untreated and unassisted had it not been for our guidance and effective customer care. Below are a few reasons why we are the way we are.

Our History

The Rehabilitation Institute of the Caribbean Ltd. is an outpatient rehabilitation center for Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (PM&R, also called Physiatry). We were established in 2009 by Dr. Paula Dawson, who holds the distinction of being the only Physician in Jamaica with US board certification in Physiatry and has Fellowship training in Interventional Spine, Musculoskeletal and Sports Medicine Rehabilitation. She is currently pioneering the development of the discipline of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation in Jamaica. Our team is a group of dynamic and well trained talented professionals who are skilled in patient care.


We opened the doors to our current location in July 2012 where we offer medical care to adults and children for physical recovery; enabling them to regain skills after injury or illness. Our treatment goal is to improve function, performance, pain and the quality of life for our patients. Each patient receives individualized therapy specific to their unique needs, abilities, and objectives.
