Ambulatory Healthcare Services (AHS), a part of the Abu Dhabi Health Services Company (SEHA), has become the first organisation across the world to achieve the 'network accreditation' from Joint Commission International (JCI).
In a recent move, the accreditation, which was hitherto granted to individual healthcare facilities, is now offered to entire healthcare networks.
The announcement came at a press conference held at Eastern Mangroves Hotel and Spa, Abu Dhabi, in the presence of senior officials from AHS including Rashid Saif Al Qubaisi, CEO, Dr Omar Naseeb Al Jabri, Chief Medical Officer, and Dr Azhar Ali, Director of Quality, as well as Dr Ashraf Ismail, Managing Director, JCI Middle East and Shadia Al Zaatari, Assistant Director, Joint Commission International, Middle East.
The first-of-its-kind endorsement was achieved for AHS' compliance with JCI Ambulatory Standards (April 2010 edition) across 20 of its healthcare centres, five disease prevention and screening centres and three mobile clinic solutions.
Saif Bader Al Qubaisi, MD and Chairman, SEHA, said: "This is in keeping with our mission to continually improve customer care to recognised international standards and with our vision to provide world-class healthcare to our customers and communities served. We are very proud of this accomplishment and would like to congratulate our employees at Ambulatory Health Services whose hard work and dedication to excellence have helped achieve this honour. One of our goals is to have all of SEHA's facilities earn this distinguished seal of accomplishment". – Emirates News Agency, WAM
