Purpose-built facility announced to meet growing needs of health and wellness community, scheduled for 2026 completion.
Building on a thoughtfully master-planned and curated Camana Bay Town Centre development, Dart has announced its plans for a new centre for health and wellness, catering to the expanding demands of a growing Cayman Islands health and wellness industry that seeks world-class facilities in a centralised location.
The new three-storey purpose-built structure is to be constructed in Camana Bay’s southern gateway, just steps away from the new Health City Cayman Islands medical campus. This 60,000-square-foot centre will provide a welcoming and convenient environment for health and wellness clients, as well as improve accessibility to healthcare services for residents and visitors alike, bringing a wide variety of experts together under one roof.
Dart Vice President of Leasing and Business Development, Kristy Rivers, said that before embarking on the project several discussions were held with public- and private-sector representatives to ensure what was being conceptualised was attuned to their needs.
“We’ve paid acute attention to the demands of the local health and wellness community, as we thoughtfully reshape the landscape to expand offerings for the benefit of our resident and tourist populations and, for us, this was the obvious next step in catering to the needs of a blossoming community,” said Rivers, in making the announcement at the 2023 Cayman Islands Healthcare Conference.
“Health and wellness has been a core feature of what we have been developing at Camana Bay over the years and the timing is right to help improve the accessibility of healthcare services by bringing a wide variety of experts together under one roof in a convenient location close to George Town and Seven Mile Beach.”
The Centre for Health and Wellness, which is scheduled to open in 2026, will be ideally situated off the new Airport Connector Road and the Esterley Tibbetts Highway, within walking distance of the Camana Bay Town Centre, providing unrivalled connectivity for healthcare professionals and their clients alike. An added benefit is that the facility will be located within walking distance of the new Health City hospital and its adjoining Gene Thomson Radiotherapy Centre, forming a state-of-the-art healthcare hub.
Gary Gibbs, executive vice president for development, said from inception, health and wellness has been integral to the design of Camana Bay. “We have developed the town centre and its buildings to capture prevailing winds and shade from mature trees to the New Urbanism planning, which provides a walkable environment,” he said. “Our team’s commitment to incorporating the highest levels of sustainability continues with this project, as we create and deliver at a quality that has become synonymous with Dart developments.”
The Centre for Health and Wellness will be an ideal place for healthcare professionals, from general medical practitioners and specialists to those offering allied services like chiropractors, physiotherapists and yoga instructors. They can all call home a building that will provide a warm and welcoming environment for tenants and their clients, with supporting ground-floor amenities such as a café and wellness offerings. An application is expected before the Central Planning Authority in the coming weeks.
