(CNS Business): A new company made up of doctors as well as local and international investors has bought the Chrissie Tomlinson Memorial Hospital. CTMH Holdings Ltd, the newly formed holding company, has also purchased land, buildings and related medical companies. The hospital was sold by Dr Steve Tomlinson, who opened the private sector facility in 2000. Tomlinson, who is now understood to be investing in the local newspaper, the Cayman Reporter, will remain at CTMH as a physician.

His daughter, Nadine Brown-Tomlinson, has joined the new supervisory board, maintaining the family’s connection with the hospital.

“Chrissie Tomlinson is an outstanding facility built on the vision to provide exceptional healthcare to the Cayman Islands, a legacy I remain incredibly passionate about,” said Dr Tomlinson following the sale. ”I sincerely believe it is in the best interest of our islands that the physicians and medical practitioners, all of whom are deeply attached to CTMH, are able to continue to grow the hospital. I know the hospital has a strong future under the governance of this experienced CTMH team and I am proud to pass the baton to this new generation of leaders,” he added.

The new team said it had identified both opportunities for long-term growth and immediate improvements to the infrastructure and patient experience.

“We recognise the need to provide truly coherent care and support for our patients, placing them at the centre of all we do. CTMH’s success comes down to putting patients first and this remains at the heart of the new team’s philosophy,” CTMH’s Radiologist, Dr Yaron Rado said. “We have some ambitious growth plans and now we have financial support; the next few years represent a tremendous opportunity to build on Chrissie Tomlinson’s history of exceptional healthcare.”
