The official opening of the Shetty Hospital, also known as Health City in the East End of Grand Cayman is a momentous and historic moment not only for the Cayman Islands but also for quality affordable health care to citizens of the USA, the Caribbean and Latin America. 

Hundreds of dignitaries gathered at the opening of what is known as the "third pillar" of Cayman's economy. Health City is a dream come true for Dr. Devi Shetty, an Indian Philanthropist and surgeon. Dr. Shetty has already opened medical tourism facilities in India, Cayman was his next focus to build a hospital of the future that could be compared to the best hospitals in Europe and the UK. 

The direct impact of Health City on the Cayman Islands has already been seen in the field of construction and labour as only local contractors and many Caymanians were hired to work on the project. 

Capital expenditure is expected to be $300 million by 2017, in total it is projected that Health City will constitute over a $2 billion investment over 15 years. 

Needless to say Health City will impact other areas of Cayman's services and industries, and as Realtors and Brokers Coldwell Banker Cayman Islands Realty sees possibilities of positive growth in the residential and commercial market.
