Health City Cayman Islands progress

 

Health City Cayman Islands, a JCI accredited tertiary care hospital on Grand Cayman, launched with high ambitions to attract a significant number of American medical tourists.

While the predicted volume has not materialised, it has made steady progress by expanding services gradually and targeting nearby countries and islands. Much business is from local residents.

The hospital is a tertiary care, super specialty medical resource for cardiology, cardiac surgery, anaesthesiology, orthopaedic surgery, pulmonology, paediatric endocrinology, neurology, neurosurgery, medical oncology, urology, critical care services, spinal surgery, bariatric surgery, colorectal surgery, cosmetic surgery and diagnostic services.

2019 will see a new cancer treatment centre and the completion of residential units adjacent to the hospital.

A new law on human tissue transplants now allows the hospital to offer this procedure as long as it is a voluntary donation locally by consent of family members, whose loved ones had agreed to donation before their death.

Health City Cayman Islands was the idea of top Indian heart surgeon Devi Shetty, and was run and owned by his Indian hospital group Narayana Health and the US-based Ascension, a large faith-based and non-profit health systems. Narayana Health offers treatment at a bundled rate, but do not release annual patient and medical tourism numbers.

Ascension pulled out of its partnership with Health City Cayman Islands in 2017.
