I love Freeport, Grand Bahama due to the laid back lifestyle.  We visited a few years ago and my son got really sick.  The doctors were quick and on point.
One thing about anywhere in the Bahamas, is that the doctors are foreign trained and have excellent training and education. 
I was glad to find that all I had to pay for excellent healthcare was $30.00 copayment without insurance.  It appeared there is free insurance for all, even the non residence.
