Life-saving care in Cayman Islands

From New York Daily News

Last year, Lakeisha Wilson desperately needed help for her two-year-old daughter Ala, who was diagnosed with Type 1 insulin-dependent diabetes.

And, in December, she got that help and more from Health City Cayman Islands hospital, home of the only pediatric endocrinologist permanently based in the Caribbean. With no diabetic specialists for children in Turks and Caicos where Wilson works, she went to the Health City Cayman Islands

Pediatric endocrinologist Dr. Deepa Subramonian addressed the challenge of controlling the toddler’s elevated and sometimes-erratic blood sugar levels by adjusting the child’s insulin regimen and monitoring.

In addition to the specialized medical care, Williams was comforted by the ambiance of the hospital and warmth of the staff.

“From the driver who picks you up at the airport to the international team members … who really go out of their way to make you feel important and make you feel comfortable,” said Williams.
