Healthcare tourism in Barbados is expected to receive a boost following the announcement of a partnership between Winners Development and American World Clinics (AWC) to jointly develop an international medical center in the island.
The $100 million project will be located on a 21.5-acre site in the northern parish of St Peter and represents AWC’s first site in a global development program for the export of American medicine to the international community.
The project’s centerpiece, a surgical specialty hospital, is designed to serve international medical travelers and local patients in the Caribbean. It will feature 60 inpatient beds, Intensive Care Unit (ICU) capabilities, 12 operating rooms, an interventional lab, and state of the art facilities for diagnostics and therapeutics.
Multidisciplinary clinic space, including dental and concierge medicine, will be located adjacent to the hospital.
Winners Development has created and collaborated on hospital and healthcare projects throughout the United States and views their relationship with AWC as an opportunity to expand in the growing global health market.
The collaboration calls on Winners Development to manage project funding, construction and campus development, with AWC providing operational expertise, staffing, and marketing for AWC-Barbados.
