Shomari Scott, Chief Business Officer, Health City Cayman Islands

CAYMAN ISLANDS, May 14, 2022 / – On the heels of a groundbreaking ceremony for the City of Camana Bay, officially designated Caribbean hospital region’s leading tertiary care providers.

Since opening its doors in 2014, the City has provided medical, surgical, diagnostic, therapeutic and advanced care services – including many “firsts” in areas such as robotic navigation; , transcatheter aortic valve replacements (TAVR) or implants (TAVI), minimally invasive clot extraction for strokes, and renal denervation – to patients from dozens of countries around the world.

“This anniversary is a great milestone for the City of Cayman Islands, the people of the Cayman Islands, and the Caribbean as a whole,” said Shomari Scott, Chief Business Officer of the Joint Commission International (JCI) -accredited facility. “It’s been eight years of success, eight years of lives saved, eight years of helping to make sure that people have renewed life,” he reflected.

The East End-based flagship hospital, known for its high-quality, affordable health care services, George Town Cayman Islands. Being built at a cost of US $ 100 million, Health City Camana Bay will feature a specialized Cancer Care Center with comprehensive and advanced oncology offerings, a neonatal intensive care unit (NICU), an emergency pavilion and critical care unit, and a robust multispecialty program which includes robotic surgery.

The 70,000-square-foot hospital is expected to be ready in two years, but this November, and 10,000-square-foot radiotherapy center for cancer care will be unveiled.

“It will be one of the most exclusive types of integrated oncology centers, and Caribbean patients will have no longer in the United States and other places where the cost can be out of reach,” said Scott, who added “we’re excited that we’re going to be able to give that Caribbean gift this year. ”

Health City Cayman Islands has also garnered a reputation for its humanitarian activities and co-operation with nonprofit organizations, which have enabled their families to receive a complex and often free treatment of charge.

Founded by renowned cardiologist Devi Shetty, Health City Cayman Islands is also known for its medical and administrative efficiency, which is reflected in its highly competitive pricing structure. In many cases the United States or Canada has a similar operation in the United States or Canada.

“We are dedicated to responding to the needs of our community,” said Scott. “Over the past eight years we have been growing, operating and innovating … breaking new ground for the next generation,” he added, recalling that the City has been delivering world-class, pioneering health care in the Caribbean since opening its doors.

Dr. Binoy Chattuparambil, Health City’s Clinical Director and Chief Cardiac Surgeon, developed the Caribbean’s first regional center for an advanced form of life support called Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation (ECMO) in 2017. The ECMO allowing the patient’s organs to rest while naturally healing the affected area takes place.

In the first surgical of its kind in the Caribbean, the Health City orthopedic surgical team repaired a patient’s shoulder using the Arthroscopic Latarjet procedure in 2018. Alwin Almeida, Chief Orthopedic Surgeon and Joint Replacement Specialist, performs the minimally invasive surgical treatment of recurrent shoulder dislocations that are usually caused by bone loss or fracture of the glenoid cavity.

Also in 2018, Health City increased its Intensive Care Unit’s trauma and triage capabilities to handle more complex trauma cases, and the hospital’s previous intensive care and triage areas were transformed into a 21-bed center, which provides 24-hour immediate coverage by emergency medicine physicians, general surgeons and anesthesiologists.

During the COVID- 19 pandemic when borders were closed, Health City Cayman Islands focused its attention on meeting the health care needs of Cayman Islands residents and expanding its outpatient health services.

“What has been achieved is just the beginning,” promised Scott.
