The review was carried out by a JCI survey team consisting of four experts who visited the hospital last month.
A cocktail reception was held last night at the Ritz-Carlton Bahrain Hotel and Spa to celebrate the accreditation, the statement said.
It was hosted by BSH board of directors chairman Shaikh Abdulrahman Al Turki, board members and hospital management.
The event was held under the patronage of Human Rights and Social Development Minister and acting Health Minister Dr Fatima Al Balooshi, it said. – TradeArabia News Service
