Spice Isle Imaging Centre is celebrating fifteen years of providing health services to Grenada. As part of its anniversary celebrations, a ceremony was held on Wednesday October 16.
Founded in 2004 by the late Dominic Paul Spice isle Imaging operations began in a container-style setup. It later moved to its current location on the Carenage in 2012. Managing Director Gerard Paul says the facility this year is celebrating a dream hatched by his late brother.
He says the plan now is to have the Imaging Centre fully accredited. With the celebration however, comes the concern of the need for accreditation of health facilities in Grenada. Health Minister Nickolas Steele who attended Wednesday’s ceremony said plans are afoot to make the medical and dental council, Grenada’s accreditation body. Firstly however, a U.S based accreditation body: National Committee on Foreign Medical Education and Accreditation NCFMEA must first give the green light. He says requests have been made.
Prime Minister Dr. Keith Mitchell, who also attended Wednesday’s event, said the Spice Isle Imaging Centre is an important part of health care services in Grenada. As part of the anniversary celebrations, Dominic Paul loyalty card was launched. It guarantees services discounts to customers, based on spending amount.
