Pin It

The 2nd annual National Healthcare Conference, to be held this November at the Ritz Carlton, is shaping up to be one of most anticipated events of the year.  Speakers from both the international and local medical community have committed to presenting on topics that will help shape the developing national health care policy and improve the current healthcare model.

Leading up to the conference, the Health Services Authority has been very much a part of the process and has been involved in the planning efforts at the Premium Sponsorship level.

As the largest provider of healthcare in the Cayman Islands, the Health Services Authority offers a wide range of primary and secondary health services to both residents and visitors of the Cayman Islands.  The organization is the second largest employer in the Cayman Islands and is strategically located throughout the three islands, with the Cayman Islands Hospital and four district health centers in Grand Cayman, the Faith Hospital in Cayman Brac and the Health Centre in Little Cayman.

CEO of the Health Services Mrs. Lizzette Yearwood commented “One aspect that I am most pleased about is the number of sponsors from the private healthcare community that have lent their support to make this conference possible.  The search for quality and affordability in healthcare is something that requires the input from all stakeholders – public and private sector healthcare providers, the Ministry, employers and the public.  I am delighted at the range of sponsors that have come on board and look forward to working closely with them all.”

The Minister of Health, the Honourable Mark Scotland, said,  “The H.S.A. has been instrumental in heading up the planning and organizing of the conference and the Ministry is very grateful for their invaluable contribution.  Providing the highest quality healthcare is a part of their mission statement and the knowledge gained at this conference will be incorporated into their plan of providing access to quality healthcare whilst at the same time running an economically sustainable organization.”

Tenet Healthcare, BritCay and Tower Marketing are the other three premium sponsors who have made tremendous contributions to make this highly anticipated event a reality. Major sponsors, including Chrissie Tomlinson Memorial Hospital, Canadian Medical Network, Intelligent Medical Objects and Admiral Administration have also generously lent their support.

Registrations are still open and everyone is welcome to attend. There are no registration fees and all are encouraged to come out on 17 – 19 November to hear from the experts on the theme Healthcare Economics: The Search for Quality and Affordability.
