Cayman Islands will become the “capital of medical tourism for the western hemisphere” within the next seven years, founder of the Caribbean’s preeminent medical care facility Health City Cayman Islands, Dr Devi Shetty, believes.

The Cayman Islands will become the “capital of medical tourism for the western hemisphere” given that 40 percent of Health City Cayman Islands’ patients already come from overseas, and the hospital aims to increase that number to 90 percent.

Health City’s plans for a multi-million-dollar cancer center, construction for which will take place over the next year. “That will make a big difference for the Caribbean, as well as the US population because oncology services in the US are very expensive,” he said.

Dr Shetty was in the Cayman Islands as a guest speaker on regional health care at the UK Government & Overseas Territories International Trade Summit 2019.
