Health City Cayman Islands
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 the following areas
- Cardiac surgery
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 all major specialties including neurology, oncology and other cutting edge tertiary care services. 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 Health Alliance, the largest private not for profit health network in the United States.
Narayana Health (NH) and Ascension Health Alliance share compatible values: NH has a commitment to care for people regardless of their ability to pay, and Ascension Health Alliance is dedicated to furthering the Mission of Ascension Health, which is committed to serving all persons with special attention to those who are poor and vulnerable.
The relationship between Ascension Health Alliance and Narayana Health was begun through TriMedx, a healthcare equipment services company that is a subsidiary of Ascension Health Alliance’s AH Holdings. TriMedx has begun providing biomedical engineering services to NH in Bangalore, India, through its subsidiary TriMedx International.
The Health City Cayman Islands initiative gives the partners the opportunity to positively impact the care being provided in the Caribbean region.
In addition to providing high-quality healthcare to Cayman residents, this initiative also will serve those who are poor and vulnerable by providing them high-quality healthcare services.
Ascension Health Alliance will provide facilities planning, supply chain management and biomedical engineering services to the project, while Narayana Health will provide technical input and direction to the Cayman team.
The hospital will come up near High Rock in the East End District of Grand Cayman. The first phase would be built by the Cayman Healthcare Construction Group, a joint venture between Caledonia Construction Cayman and healthcare construction specialists Deangelis Diamond Healthcare Group.
