Prime Hospital obtains Joint Commission International accreditation

Certification assures UAE patients of safety, improved customer experience and  healthcare quality

UAE, July 10, 2016 – Prime Hospital, a leading healthcare provider in the UAE, has recently been granted accreditation by the Joint Commission International (JCI), a globally-recognized  healthcare organisation that aims to ensure the highest quality and safety standards in patient care. Prime Hospital is part of Prime Healthcare Group which has been working with Dubai’s health authorities to help meet international standards in healthcare services in the Emirate as part of Dubai Health Strategy 2021.

The JCI accreditation is the ‘gold’ standard for hospitals when it comes to maintaining a high level of patient care and safety. The JCI standards are more focused on areas that directly impact patient care such as access to care, patients’ experiences and feedback, infection control, patient and family rights and education and awareness initiatives. To be accredited, hospitals must also be evaluated in their performance in areas of facilities management and safety, medical expertise and staff qualifications, efforts to improve the quality of services, organizational leadership and  effective communication management.

Dr. Jamil Ahmed, Managing Director, Prime Healthcare Group, said: “Once again, Prime Healthcare Group has achieved a major milestone in its efforts to elevate the level of healthcare standards in the UAE by successfully obtaining the Joint Commission International’s stamp of quality healthcare standards. The JCI accreditation is testament to our commitment to be part of Dubai’s quest to put the UAE in the world map of achieving excellence and providing international-level quality healthcare to its citizens and residents.”
