Medical Tourism in the Cayman Islands
Posted by skymedicus STAFF on 9/29/2017 11:48 AM | Last Modified: September 29, 2017
The Cayman Islands are a three-island chain in the Caribbean known for sandy beaches and tropical climate. In recent years, Health City Cayman Islands, a medical facility that opened in 2014, has been drawing attention for its quality healthcare with excellent results and prices that are significantly lower than comparable facilities in the US.
With the natural setting of the Caymans, a five-star hotel within walking distance, a similar standard of living to the US, and a high number of beds for a small island, Health City is designed with medical tourism in mind. With a healthy flow of foreign patients, the hospital can reinvest in their healthcare and expand while still maintaining their high quality and low cost. When Health City first opened, their main specialties were cardiac and orthopedic, but they now are able to offer a wide range of specialties, including oncology, bariatric, and neurology.
Health City makes use of modern technology by providing each patient a tablet to use that doctors and nurses update with all of the patient's information. The patient may also contact medical staff directly through the tablet. When the patient is ready to leave, his or her information is deleted from the tablet and stored in an encrypted database. Doctors and nurses have access to this information 24/7, so that if something happens or there is an alarming test result, medical staff can quickly respond, at an average of seven minutes. During the night shift, monitoring of patients is done digitally, with doctors in an Indian hospital, where it is daytime, watching for possible issues and ready to alert doctors in the Caymans.
Health City set out with the mission of providing safe and reliable healthcare to anyone, regardless of income. The facility hopes to expand to 2,000 beds soon to accommodate even more medical tourists.
