CAYMAN ISLANDS (August 5, 2020) – High-quality tertiary medical care is coming closer to residents of George Town, the Seven-Mile Beach area and West Bay – as well as international visitors staying in resorts along Grand Cayman’s Seven Mile Beach.
Health City Cayman Islands has announced that the territory’s only Joint Commission International (JCI) accredited hospital will be opening a satellite specialty medical care center in Camana Bay on Forum Lane. Centrally located in the Seven Mile Beach corridor and a 10-minute drive from the Owen Roberts International Airport, over 2,000 people work, live and visit the 685-acre community of Camana Bay each day.
Clinical Director Dr. Binoy Chattuparambil explained that the tertiary care facility is committed to making access to specialty medical services more convenient for all residents of and visitors to the Cayman Islands.
“At Health City, we have always taken a patient-centered approach to providing the highest quality medical care. We want to ensure we are making specialized outpatient care and surgical follow-up care as accessible as possible for all patients needing our services,” he said.
The state-of-the-art facility in East End will remain fully functional as Health City’s flagship location in the Cayman Islands. Surgical services and major diagnostic services will continue to be based at the main hospital, with outpatient and follow-up care offered at the Camana Bay office in the facility’s full range of specialized medical and surgical services.
Chief Business Officer Shomari Scott said, “We are opening this new location at Camana Bay to better serve Cayman Islands residents and the local community, as the majority of the population either live or work on the western side of Grand Cayman. Additionally, when our Islands reopen to medical tourists the Camana Bay center will provide a location closer to the ports of entry and to visitors who prefer to stay in the Seven Mile Beach area before and after their procedures.
Health City’s Camana Bay office will not function as a general practice clinic, but will be offering outpatient consultations for a range of specialized medical services including cardiology, neurology, orthopedics, medical oncology, gastroenterology, gynecology, urology, and more.
Dr. Chattuparambil said, “Patients have told us that with their busy work lives and schedules, it is not always convenient to come to the hospital in East End for consultations as they live and work on the other side of the island. So, we have listened and are coming closer to our valued patients.”
Health City’s new Camana Bay office is anticipated to be open within the next six to eight weeks.
Mr. Scott said, “We are working quickly as we hope to have the new office operational as soon as possible. We will ensure that we keep the public and our patients informed, and look forward to welcoming them at both of our locations in the very near future.”
Dart’s President of Business Development Jackie Doak welcomed Health City to Camana Bay. “Our goal has always been to offer convenience and accessibility to those who live, work and play in Camana Bay. Health City’s Camana Bay office will be a positive addition to the Town Centre, expanding the breadth of health services already offered.”
