The hospital’s goal is to boost capacity from just 22% at present to as much as 75% in a short space of time. Read more and comment on CNS Business

    TWO-TIER FEE STRUCTURE…

    An MRI in the US costs around US$500.00, but in Cayman, you need to fork over US$3,000.00 to the LOCAL MRI MONOPOLY…

    So, this hospital now charges Caymanian patients this same ludicrous and abusive fee, while matching the US fees for the US citizens…

    Unfortunately, there will be little or no benefits accruing to Caymanians out of the Shetty hospital, in spite of all the stories one hears…

    JCI offshore accreditation is in practice “JCI Lite” accreditation. US Hospitals have a more stringent version of JCI accreditation. So need to compare apples and oranges…

    accreditation has nothing to do with demand
