Health City Cayman Islands has broken ground on a purpose-built dedicated cancer treatment centre in East End, Grand Cayman. It will include accommodation for overseas patients, will be the first such facility for the Cayman Islands, and will feature technology used nowhere else in the region. Local patients will no longer have to travel to the USA for cancer treatment.
Once complete, the cancer treatment centre will allow Health City Cayman Islands (HCCI) to provide greatly expanded oncology treatment options, including medical oncology, surgical oncology, radiation therapy, and bone marrow transplants.
Owned and operated by Indian healthcare company Narayana Health, HCCI expects the centre to be open during 2020. It will include accommodation for overseas patients, will be the first such facility for the Cayman Islands, and will feature technology used nowhere else in the region. It will use Varian’s TrueBeam Linear Accelerator (LINAC), a world-class LINAC system that is fully integrated for image-guided radiotherapy and radiosurgery.
Beyond providing oncology services to patients living in the Cayman Islands, it will also aim to attract oncology patients from around the Caribbean and Central America, who have no local access to these advanced therapies.
Health City is looking to offer further expand specialist medical services to fill other existing gaps in medical care available locally and regionally.
