It's going to take some major changes for hospitals in the U.S. to compete with coral-sand beaches and high-quality healthcare offered at a low price, according to an article on the Becker's Hospital Review website.
Health City Cayman Islands offers beautiful weather, relaxing beaches, fine dining and the amenities of a five-star resort 500 miles south of Florida.
"By providing quality healthcare for a fraction of the U.S. price, Health City may be where your patients schedule their next medical visit," the article said.
Construction costs are also much lower in the Cayman Islands than in the U.S. Health City was built for approximately one-third the cost of building a U.S. hospital, with each hospital bed in the U.S. equating to $3 million in costs.
Health City aims to be a Joint Commission international accredited facility within the next six to nine months, and expects a more steady flow of U.S. patients at that point, the article said.
