MAHWAH, N.J. & GRAND CAYMAN, Cayman Islands -- May 6, 2021: Aster DM Healthcare Limited, one of the largest private global healthcare service providers with 365 total healthcare facilities worldwide, is increasing its scope of services to meet the needs of self-funded employers, plan sponsors, brokers and benefits consultants, offering accessibility to the highest quality care with transparent bundled pricing for surgeries and specialized treatments. With the development of Aster Cayman Medcity located on Grand Cayman Island, a clinical excellence hub serving the U.S., Canada, Caribbean and LATAM Regions, this 150-bed comprehensive, tertiary and quaternary care hospital complements the existing Aster DM Healthcare Centers of Excellence in the Middle East and India that deliver higher quality, more
cost-effective options for high-end treatment to residents and medical value tourists.

Aster DM Healthcare is a new organizational member of the Self-Insurance Institute of America (SIIA) and has facilities in India and the Middle East that were all established to serve the needs of patients and  employers worldwide. Aster Hospitals in India have a well-defined infrastructure for international medical value tourism which in pre-pandemic days accounted for 15% of the business.

Alisha Moopen, deputy managing director of Aster DM Healthcare, says, “Our dedicated team of 21,000+ employees, including 2,887 doctors working in seven countries, are experienced in delivering clinical excellence of the highest standards and often setting benchmarks in the process. With the development of
Aster Cayman Medcity, we are extending that commitment by providing the region and millions of medical travellers with the highest quality care in one of the world’s most beautiful settings.”

Aster Cayman Medcity will give the Cayman Islands an unprecedented level of access to the most advanced medical services and intensive care facilities, providing a level of healthcare resilience that is literally unmatched. The brand promise, “We’ll Treat You Well” captures this philosophy and signals the right healthcare infrastructure to support safe, accessible, affordable and quality care.

Moopen adds, “Employers and benefit payers will discover an innovative, solutions-driven approach to meet the individual healthcare needs of customers, offering affordable services that may have gone missing from their existing benefits program options. With direct flights and brief travel time from most North American cities, Aster Cayman Medcity represents convenience, service excellence and cost-saving opportunities.”

The Cayman Islands, located in the Western Caribbean, has a growing flight network and first-class tourism infrastructure. It appears perfectly placed to become a regional hub for medical tourism bringing much needed accessibility and affordability for tertiary and quaternary care for Caribbean nations, while offering a viable alternative to local care in expensive health systems such as the U.S.

Azad Moopen, MD, founder chairman and managing director of Aster DM Healthcare, says,  “With our experience of delivering healthcare over three decades in India and the Middle East, Aster is in the process of expanding to other regions. The current project has the blessings of the Cayman Islands Government and will bring Aster’s advanced clinical expertise, service excellence and legacy of knowledge to the region as we set up Cayman Islands as our hub for the Western Hemisphere. This is also well aligned with our desire to provide Caring Mission with Global Vision to make quality healthcare accessible and affordable across the world.”
