Healthcare Services & Hospitals
While Cayman has fully equipped hospitals and top rated healthcare, certain medical conditions are still better treated overseas - keep reading to review the local hospital and healthcare options and some overseas hospitals that we recommend.
In support of all the excellent healthcare available in Cayman, there are numerous health-oriented associations and support groups that promote awareness and raise funds for equipment and tests. (See the Support Groups page and Clubs and Organisations page for more information on these organisations, all of which are often looking for support and volunteers.)
Grand Cayman has three fully equipped hospitals: Cayman Islands Hospital, CTMH Doctors Hospital, and Health City Cayman Islands. Cayman Brac is home to Faith Hospital. Incredibly, there are approximately 4.5 doctors, and 6.3 nurses for every 1000 people residing in the Cayman Islands.
Cayman Islands residents may be referred to overseas hospitals and other facilities for specific medical procedures that are either unavailable or not commonly performed on-Island. Premature babies, people visiting specialists or having complicated surgery, as well as those injured in a bad accident, are often airlifted to the United States for treatment.
Home health care items are easy to find at the pharmacies on-Island and lease equipment such as hospital beds, wheelchairs, crutches and scooters is also available. THERABAND & BIOFREEZE products, KINESIO Tape, Quadrastep custom fitted orthotics are also obtainable locally.
