|NARAYANA HEALTH ANNOUNCES COMPREHENSIVE CANCER TREATMENT CENTER IN CAYMAN BY 2019
CAYMAN ISLANDS (August 10, 2018) – Narayana Health, the Indian health care giant behind Health City Cayman Islands, has announced a December 2019 completion date for a multimillion-dollar comprehensive cancer treatment center at its existing campus in Grand Cayman.
Dr. Ashutosh Raghuvanshi, Vice Chairman, Managing Director and Group CEO of Narayana Health, announced that the state-of-the-art center will be housed in a new purpose-built building at the tertiary care facility’s East End, Grand Cayman location and that the groundbreaking is expected in September 2018.
The facility, to include accommodations for overseas patients and all-inclusive cancer care, will be the first comprehensive cancer care center in the Caribbean. It will provide medical oncology, surgical oncology and radiation under one roof, in addition to offering Bone Marrow Transplant (BMT) services. “Once again Narayana Health and Health City Cayman Islands will bring medical advancement to the region, while fulfilling a vital need in the Caribbean’s health care landscape,” said Dr. Raghuvanshi.
The hospital already has a medical oncology facility with a five-bed daycare chemotherapy unit.
Health City Cayman Islands Clinical Director Dr. Binoy Chattuparambil said: “Health City Cayman Islands continues to follow our mission to transform the delivery of health care in the Caribbean and beyond. As we expand our oncology services, we are committed to remaining on the forefront of medical innovation, while maintaining our patient-centric focus on providing high quality, compassionate and affordable care.”
Dr. Chattuparambil emphasized that Health City’s new cancer treatment center will work hand-in-hand with the Cayman Islands Health Services Authority, as well as private physicians, to ensure that local patients receive seamless and comprehensive treatment through a collaborative and holistic approach.
Health City’s founder, the world-renowned surgeon and philanthropist Dr. Devi Shetty, has positioned the facility as an example for the rest of the world to follow. Speaking at the GREAT Festival of Innovation in Hong Kong in March, he said: “We built Health City with the idea of transforming health care of the Caribbean region and the Western Hemisphere – and perhaps the rest of the world. We have a phenomenal opportunity to use technology and make health care safer, (accessible and affordable) for the patient.”
