Surgeon Devi Shetty Promotes Hospital Ships Outside of the US, Settles for the Cayman Islands

 

“The best location to build a hospital on the planet today is a ship that is parked in the US waters just outside its territory,” Dr. Devi Shetty said.  “The site at the Cayman Islands is the closest approximation that fits the bill.”

 

We have been following Devi Shetty’s humanitarian accomplishments every since Nishant Bagadia, former VP of Neuhealth, and Peter Weiauthor and medical student at Duke University, independently acknowledged Shetty’s famous hospitals in India as precedents for seasteading. Now Dr. Shetty himself is speculating about the sea.

 

The Wall Street Journal dubbed Dr. Shetty “The Henry Ford of Health Surgery.” He created 14 hospitals that offer coronary bypass surgeries to Westerners for about $5,200 USD, and in turn he offers medical insurance to millions of rural poor Indians for 25 cents a month. His hospital’s success rates are equal to or better than the U.S. hospitals, which currently charge an average of $144,000 USD.

 

But why fly to India to cut medical costs when you can visit a nearby island?

 

“By building such a healthcare institution in a British protectorate right outside the US regulatory structure,” Shetty told The Economic Times, “which can work with US doctors and experts for the US patients, one can show what is possible in healthcare even in the developed world and at what cost.”

 

Patients Beyond Borders, which counsels patients seeking medical travel, estimates that well over a half million people will travel abroad for treatment in 2014, and the numbers will grow 15 to 20 percent each year as baby-boomers overwhelm the system.

 

Exaggeration? Deloitte Consulting, the largest financial services network in the world, published an article in 2008 estimating that the number of Americans who travelled abroad for healthcare jumped from 750,000 in 2007 to 1.6 million in 2012, and that this number could increase by a factor of ten over ten years.

 

Healthcare in the US is not going to get cheaper any time soon. A terrifying study published in the March/April 2012 issue of the Annals of Family Medicine claimed the typical American family would spend $20,000 on health care that year, and that if current trends continue, health insurance premiums will surpass the median U.S. household income in 2033.

 

To serve the rising wave of US medical tourists, “health cities” are being built in the Cayman Islands, St. Maarten, the Bahamas, Barbados, and several other Caribbean states. As all the natural islands surrounding dysfunctional health care systems get used up, there will be increasing demand for man-made islands, starting with medical ships stationed even closer to frustrated patients.
