Health City Cayman Islands, scheduled to accept its first patients in early 2014, will open with a 140-bed tertiary-care hospital in Grand Cayman as a center of excellence in cardiac surgery, cardiology and orthopedics.
Over the next decade, the hospital will expand to a 2,000-bed facility, and expects to be a JCI (Joint Commission International, USA) Accredited facility providing care in major specialties including neurology, oncology and other cutting edge tertiary care disciplines. The complex is also planned to have a medical university and an assisted-care living community.
Health City Cayman Islands is the vision of famed India heart surgeon Dr. Devi Shetty. As Chairman of Narayana Health, he oversees a network of 14 hospitals across India. Narayana Health is joined in the first phase of the project by Ascension, the largest private not for profit health system in the United States.
