Already respected & on the map as a healthcare tourism destination built on high quality & affordability, we are perfectly situated to address the 1.4 million US citizens annually who already travel for medical care, as well as the whole American Region’s thirst for highly specialised healthcare in an affordable form.
I invite you to share a vision to develop the Cayman Islands into a trusted & world-renowned destination for the highest quality of care in an affordable form. In recent times, we have learned that industries we have built over decades are more vulnerable than we thought & thus how vital it is that we diversify our economy so that it can support our people & our aspirations.
This is a vision that brings economic diversification & investment, the highest standards of healthcare including access to quaternary care, significant cost savings, hundreds of new jobs, new educational opportunities for our population & better care for our elderly population. It represents a major start in pulling ourselves back up from the effects of recent events & so I am proud to share it.
