"We will be commencing a 2,000-bed multi-speciality hospital in Cayman Island, a 50 minute drive from Miami," Devi Shetty, Chairman of the group, told PTI.

"Over 1,000 doctors, nurses and medical staff will work at the hospital. Most of the doctors will be from India while some will be from the US," he said. We also have plans to build an over 500-bed multi-speciality hospital in Malaysia, he further added.

Some real estate agencies there, are willing to construct the building for us", Shetty said. He said Karnataka government had allotted 14 acres of land to the group in Mysore to start a 2,000-bed 'health city'. "Hopefully, we will commence the project within two years."

"In order to increase its presence across the country, the group would launch a 5,000-bed multi-speciality hospital in Ahmedabad next year and a 1400-bed such hospital in Jaipur by end of March next year", Shetty said.
