Patients may be referred to overseas hospitals for specific treatments that are either unavailable or not commonly performed on-Island. Premature babies, those visiting specialists or having complicated surgery, as well as those injured in a bad accident, are often airlifted to Florida for treatment.
Thankfully, Cayman benefits from a state-of-the-art hospital which specialises in cardiology. See Health City Cayman Islands in our Local Hospitals section. Check with your insurance company about in-network services abroad or for pre-approval of treatment, otherwise you may be required to pay the full amount up front.
Below is a list of well-known overseas hospitals. Three overseas hospitals, Baptist Health International (as well as the Miami Cancer Institute - a part of Baptist Health South Florida) and the Cancer Treatment Centers of America®, have offices in Grand Cayman.
