| 15/09/2014 | 0 Comments

(CNS Business): Health City Cayman Islands is sending a delegation to an international healthcare conference and trade show in in Washington DC next week. Dr Chandy Abraham, Facility Director and Head of Medical Services, will introduce the special skills and capacities of the state-of-the-art facility in his presentation to a Caribbean ministerial meeting at the World Medical Tourism and Global Healthcare Congress.

“The networking value of these conferences is exceptional,” said Dr Abraham.

Fielding questions and representing Health City at formal meetings will be Patient Care Relations Manager Joan Freedman, Marketing Director Shomari Scott and Digital Marketing Specialist Aliya Dunstan.

“As the world’s population ages, non-communicable diseases continue to rise in frequency and healthcare costs inflate at an alarming rate. The issue of creating a healthcare destination that provides a high quality service for far less cost has never been more pressing,” said Scott. The Health City Cayman Islands facility, he added, represented the Caribbean’s determination to step up to the burgeoning global medical tourism and travel market.

Envisioned by Narayana Health’s storied Dr Devi Shetty, a philanthropist and personal physician of the late Mother Teresa, Health City Cayman Islands opened its doors in February 2014. The facility in the western Caribbean is one of 27 facilities operating under Dr Shetty’s administration across the globe.

Health City Cayman Islands opened its first phase in early 2014, putting the Cayman Islands on the map as a healthcare destination, and offering patients a centre of excellence for cardiac surgery, cardiology, orthopaedics, paediatric endocrinology and pulmonology.

Once completed, Health City Cayman Islands will have 2,000 beds, a dedicated medical research university, assisted living centre and become one of the largest healthcare centres of its kind in the world.

The conference takes place 20-24 September.
