ONE OF THE Caribbean’s largest health tourism projects – a multimillion-dollar facility – is about to be unveiled in Barbados.

And the spin-offs from the $500 million project, Harmony Sands Barbados – from jobs to hi-tech medical treatments – are expected to greatly benefit the island.

American and British investors have joined with Barbadian interests and lined up several realtors to identify a suitably sized property for the massive integrated hotel, health complex and impressive marina.

Construction is expected to start next year and the ultra-modern medical centre will be fully operational within 36 months, resulting in specialised treatments for breast and prostate cancer patients from around the world on a 15-acre site that will include a five-star hotel and the capacity to treat more than 6 000 patients a year.
