Baptist Health International Cayman Imaging Centre Receives Award

Baptist Health International Cayman Islands PET & CT Imaging Center, part of Baptist Health South Florida, was awarded the Gold Seal of Approval from the Joint Commission International (JCI), a global leader in accrediting quality in healthcare.

This is the first JCI accreditation for Baptist Health South Florida outside the U.S. and positions the Imaging Center as one of the prestigious facilities around the world that are dedicated to achieving the highest standards in quality and safety in patient care.

"This recognition is a testament to our long-standing commitment to providing our patients in the Cayman Islands and the Caribbean with superior care when it comes to their health," said Rogelio E. Ribas, corporate vice president of Baptist Health International. "We look forward to continuing the enhancement of our services and technology so that patients can have access to quality diagnostic imaging services and transforming the Cayman Islands into a top medical destination in the region."

Accreditation was awarded following a detailed and comprehensive on-site survey and evaluation process, ensuring that the Imaging Center met the criteria in every area. JCI's stringent standards – addressing topics such as patient education, qualification and competency of staff, the use of data to improve services and preparedness for emergencies – are updated regularly to reflect the advances in healthcare.

Baptist Health International Cayman Islands PET & CT Imaging Center is equipped with state-of-the-art positron emission tomography (PET) and computed tomography (CT) technology. It provides the latest solutions in diagnostic imaging, servicing patients not only in the Cayman Islands, but also those in other Caribbean countries who may not have access to these advanced technologies in their counties. Since its opening in 2019, the Imaging Center has provided more than 400 patients with diagnostic consults, reducing the need to travel abroad for a PET or CT scan.
