Health City, Dr. Shetty recognized with healthcare awards

Health City Cayman Islands and its founder, Dr. Devi Shetty, received awards at America’s largest healthcare conference in Washington, D.C.

Dr. Shetty, chairman of Narayana Health, received two awards at the World Health Care Congress’s 2018 Health Value Awards ceremony on April 29. A third award was given to Health City Cayman Islands itself.

Dr. Shetty won a gold prize in the Lifetime Achievement awards for Clinical Care, which Health City Clinical Director Dr. Binoy Chattuparambil said was recognition of providing high-quality healthcare based on U.S. parameters while still reducing the cost.

“Dr. Shetty wanted to prove he can do it in the Cayman Islands (not the least expensive place by any means in the Caribbean to do business) through efficiencies, through having the right model,” said Dr. Binoy, as he is known, in the press release. He noted that Health City’s pricing is about one-third of that in similar U.S. institutions.

Dr. Shetty also won a second gold Lifetime Achievement award for Outstanding Public Leadership.

The third prize received by the Health City Cayman Islands team was the silver award in the Direct Care Providers category.

Health City Director of Business Development Shomari Scott said Health City was considered a “disrupter” in the medical field, demonstrating that the “highest quality outcomes can be provided at affordable prices.”

Health City was one of 57 finalists selected from the hundreds vying for a variety of awards in several categories.

The ceremony took place at the Marriott Wardman Park Hotel in Washington, D.C., as part of the 15th Annual World Health Care Congress from April 29 through May 2.

Health City was represented by Dr. Binoy, Mr. Scott, U.S. Sales Specialist Mary Jones and board member Gene Thompson.
