Health City Cayman Island Receive International Accreditation

HCCI Reception Area

Just over a year after opening Health City Cayman Island has been awarded the gold seal of approval from Joint Commission International, and now is part of an elite club of top-class hospitals around the world.

Health City is only the second hospital in the Caribbean, after the Doctors hospital in the Bahamas, to receive the international accreditation from the international arm of the accrediting organization for hospitals in the United States.

The hospital already receives a number of U.S. patients but is still running far below capacity at around 22 percent. The accreditation will help boost the numbers higher and the head of medical services, Dr. Abraham “hopes to have the facility running at 75 percent to 80 percent capacity by the end of the year”.
