American Hospital Dubai earns record 6th accreditation from Joint Commission International
(31 May 2015)


The American Hospital Dubai has earned its 6th accreditation by Joint Commission International, JCI, a worldwide leader in improving the quality of healthcare, following a recent JCI on-site survey by a team of international health care experts representing medical, nursing and hospital administration.

The American Hospital Dubai became the first hospital in the Middle East ­ and only the second in the world - to be awarded JCI accreditation in May 2000, and has successfully maintained its accredited status. JCI carries out surveys on its accredited hospitals every three years.

"Health care organisations around the world want to create environments that focus on quality, safety and continuous improvement," said Paula Wilson, President and CEO of JCI. "Accreditation meets this demand by stimulating continuous, systematic improvements in an organisation’s performance and the outcomes of patient care. The community should be proud that the American Hospital Dubai has made a commitment to quality and safety."

JCI is dedicated to improving the quality of health care through voluntary accreditation and the JCI standards are revised at least every three years by a 13 member Standards Advisory Panel, composed of experienced physicians, nurses and administration and public policy experts, and the uniform, high standards for patient care and safety are designed to be adaptable to local needs, thus accommodating legal, religious and cultural factors within a country, while also requiring the adoption of evidence based practices.

The significant changes in the 5th edition ‘raise the bar’ on compliance expectations from health care organisations hoping to achieve this ‘gold seal’ of approval.
