Montgomery Sisam embarks on a New Long-Term Residential Mental Health Facility Project in the Cayman Islands

Montgomery Sisam, together with local firm DDL Studio, signed an agreement on Wednesday, July 26th with the Cayman Islands’ Ministry of Health to kick-off the highly anticipated long-term residential mental health facility project.

This initiative, the first of its kind on the Islands, will radically improve mental health services for vulnerable Caymanians and their families. Currently, long-term patients are sent oversees for treatment; those who are unable to obtain visas are treated at the Cayman Islands Hospital or, in certain cases, at Northward Prison, others are cared for by family members.

Located on a 15-acre site in the High Rock area of East End of Grand Cayman, the new, purpose-built local care facility will include a central administrative building and nine small cottages accommodating six residents each. The facility will follow a fast-tracked construction schedule and is projected to open by April 2019.
