There are a broad range of sophisticated medical services available in the Cayman Islands, from small specialist clinics to large hospitals. Grand Cayman has three fully equipped, modern hospitals: one is public and two are private.
The largest hospital: the Cayman Islands Hospital locally referred to as the George Town Hospital (GT Hospital), manages nearly all major medical emergencies for the three Islands.
The other two hospitals: Chrissie Tomlinson Memorial Hospital and Health City Cayman Islands offer a broad spectrum of emergency, specialist and diagnostic services. Cayman Brac has one hospital, Faith Hospital that also services Little Cayman, although patients with complex medical emergencies are transferred to the GT Hospital. Faith Hospital is a public hospital.
There are also many private General Practitioner (GP) clinics in Grand Cayman that are a good option if you have a non-acute medical condition that requires treatment and prescribed medication. There are also a number of private specialist clinics offering services in the fields of cardiology, endocrinology, gastroenterology, neurology and obstetrics and gynecology, (to name a few), if you need to see a medical specialist.
Medical tourism is also a growing industry in the Cayman Islands and there are a few private clinics and hospitals that specialise in cosmetic surgery, non-invasive procedures using stem cell technology and specialised cardiology procedures.
Health Insurance & Medical Access
No visitor to the Cayman Islands will be denied medical care, but you will either need to have health insurance that covers you while overseas or be able to pay out of pocket for treatment.
