Barbados Fertility Centre (BFC) has done it AGAIN! For the fifth time in a row, BFC has been awarded the Gold Seal of approval from Joint Commission International after continuing to excel in the highest standards of patient care and safety. This deserving accreditation now spans from 2007 to 2023 and makes Barbados Fertility Centre the longest running JCI accredited fertility facility in the world!
Joint Commission International (JCI) is the USA health facility accreditation programme that sets extremely stringent health care standards across the world with a strong focus on high reliability health care. Chief Operations Officer, Rachel De Gale said “The dedication to keep on the journey of high quality patient care is one that requires a ‘superpower’ like commitment. It influences every areas of the clinic with the ability to have an impact on a global scale. Being at the forefront of providing the BEST IVF care in the world makes the challenges of reaching the JCI standards worth it.”
BFC continues to be listed on the very elite group of fertility clinics worldwide for its excellent patient care and high success rates. Since opening in 2002, BFC has seen year on year increases in the number of couples conceiving through the creation of a stress reduced environment for couples undergoing IVF treatment. In 2019, 95% of BFC’s patients travelled to the island of Barbados for IVF treatment from abroad. In the last 3 years, they have seen a doubling of USA based patients travelling to Barbados for world class quality care proven by the JCI accreditation.
BFC is one of the first IVF units in the world to offer a combination of medical tradition and a holistic approach by treating couples both mentally and physically at their on-site wellness centre – The Life Wellness Centre. BFC believes that their approach of allowing couples to de-stress while undergoing treatment on one of the most beautiful islands in the world, is one of the reasons why they are so successful. All of this combined with accreditation to ensure the quality of patient care, can only mean constant improvement in the service that they provide.
