Shomari Scott is the Chief Business Officer for Health City Cayman Islands, the vision of famed heart surgeon and humanitarian, Dr. Devi Shetty. Health City serves local, regional and international patients seeking treatment from world class medical experts and provides access to affordable compassionate healthcare in a patient-centred environment.
Mr. Scott has been with the organisation from inception as one of Health City’s original employees. He has played an instrumental role with the team that helped to shape the hospital’s concept from vision to reality. In his close to ten years the Health City brand and strategic indicators have grown in leaps and bounds. Health City is now synonymous with quality and compassion which is in no small part due to Mr. Scott.
Prior to joining Health City, Mr. Scott worked with the Cayman Islands Department of Tourism for 18 years where he gained a deep understanding of the tourism sector. He began as an intern with the Department and rose through the ranks of the organisation, eventually being appointed Director of Tourism. Mr. Scott took the helm of the Department in 2008 during the global recession, and defied conventional wisdom to help grow tourism arrivals by 25 percent over the next four years.
A strong believer in assessment, quality and continuous improvement, Shomari takes every opportunity to lead by example and to promote the personal and professional development of his team members.
In 2013, he was awarded the Young Caymanian Leadership Award, which recognises outstanding young Caymanians whose achievements and actions make a significant contribution to the islands’ society and who serve as positive role models for other youth. In 2022, he was elected as the President for the Cayman Islands Chamber of Commerce. The same year, he was appointed as the Chairman of the Education Council.
