Dr. Denise Osterloh has joined the team of doctors at Cayman Clinic in George Town district.
The new addition will be a familiar face to many in Cayman, as she has been living here since 1997, working at the Accident and Emergency Department at the Cayman Islands Hospital for past 14 years.
Dr. Osterloh joins Dr. Virginia Hobday at the practice on Crewe Road.
She has extensive experience in hyperbaric medicine – the diagnosis and treatment of decompression illness in divers – and is a member of the Cayman Hyperbaric Services.
Prior to moving to Cayman, Dr. Osterloh worked in Brunei, Ireland, England and South Africa in emergency medicine, general practice and anaesthetics.
“The doctors at Cayman Clinic are dedicated to providing high-quality care for all their patients. I’m honoured to be part of this well-established family practice which has been in existence for 40 years,” she said.
Dr. Hobday, who has lived in Cayman since 1998 and heads up Cayman Clinic, said she was delighted to have Dr. Osterloh on the Cayman Clinic team, which specialises in family medicine and also offers child health care, women’s health, work permit and insurance examinations, aviation and dive medicals, as well as minor surgery, home visits and urgent care.
The Cayman Clinic also houses dental, obstetrics, chiropractic, physiotherapy and acupuncture specialists.
Since 2001, Dr. Hobday has practised at the Cayman Clinic as a family doctor and certified civil aviation medical examiner. She also lectures part-time at St. Matthew’s University School of Medicine.
She is also medical director of Cayman Hospice Care, medical adviser to the Breast Cancer Foundation and vice president of the Cayman Islands Medical and Dental Society. She has worked in the district health clinics of the Public Health Department, which included Northward Prison.
Dr. Hobday and Dr. Osterloh met in 1998 while both were working for the Health Services Authority.
“I am delighted to welcome Denise to the Cayman Clinic team,” Dr. Hobday said. “Her experience, professionalism, compassion and familiarity with Cayman will be of great benefit to our patients.
“She is an ideal addition to our practice where we regard the family as a unit and know that family interactions can affect everyone’s health. We share a very similar philosophy and approach to health care. Our relationship with our patients is paramount.”
