Health City Cayman Islands and the globalization of health services delivery.

Journal Article (Review)

We describe a new health care campus under development in the Cayman Islands, Health City, based on the low-cost "focused factory" model. The construction of a multispecialty hospital opening in February 2014 less than a 4-hour flight away from the United States and convenient to both Central and South America for patients who already travel to the United States for clinical care could reshape the US health care marketplace and enhance access to affordable specialty health care in the region.
