Your Optimal Health is our primary concern

About Us

The 4H Hospital was conceptualized out of the need to create a concierge medical facility that caters to the needs of both Local, Regional and International clients who are seeking an intimate hospital setting.



The Sparman Clinic was the brainchild of Dr. Alfred Sparman, CEO & Interventional Cardiologist, who developed a niche in cardiac care and interventional cardiology. Dr. Sparman originally relocated to Barbados from the USA in 2001 and opened a clinic which focused on general cardiology. Shortly afterwards, he spearheaded the first angioplasty program in Barbados and his practice rapidly grew. This was just the beginning, for Dr. Sparman had envisioned a more expansive healthcare program that would be on par with international standards. Hence the birth of the second private hospital in Barbados, The Sparman Clinic, located in  Barbados’ medical ‘capital’, Belleville. The basis for the hospital was to holistically care for its patients via preventative care, diagnostic testing and interventional procedures. The 4H Hospital was created as the sister entity to The Sparman Clinic with its main goal to service medical tourist seeking an array of medical services on the island.
