Stage 2 of the Cayman Islands Hospital A & E renovations underway

The Health Services Authority (HSA) has embarked on stage 2 of its planned multi-phased project to expand the Accident and Emergency (A&E) Department and improve patient experience at the Cayman Islands Hospital. Renovations include facility upgrades to the ceilings, lightings, flooring and walls of patient examination and treatment rooms.

Due to these upgrades, walk-in patients may experience a delay in service and are reminded to use the A&E services in cases of emergency only to prevent congestion and reduce wait times. An emergency is a critical or life-threatening situation that needs urgent medical attention which may include:

Loss of consciousness

Persistent, severe chest pain

Breathing difficulties

Severe bleeding that cannot be stopped

Severe allergic reactions

Severe burns or scalds

Unexplained, acute drowsiness or disorientation

Less severe injuries and conditions can be treated at the Acute Care Clinic in the General Practice Building on the Cayman Islands Hospital campus. The clinic’s hours of operation are Mondays – Fridays 7:30am – 8pm and Saturday 8:30am – 12pm.

We apologise in advance for any inconvenience this may cause and thank you for your patience and understanding as we improve our facilities to better serve you.
