Abu Dhabi hospital wins ADFCA certificate
Abu Dhabi, June 23, 2012
Corniche Hospital, a Joint Commission International (JCI)-accredited health care facility, said its food services unit has won the “A level facility” certificate for quality and cleanliness from Abu Dhabi Food Control Authority (ADFCA).
The award was presented to Sara Ali Al Amri, Corniche Hospital’s food services manager, at a recent ceremony held at Holiday Inn, Abu Dhabi to recognise the emirate’s outstanding food establishments.
“As one of the leaders in the healthcare industry in the country, Corniche Hospital caters to a large community, and meeting the highest standard of our food service is one of our top priorities,” remarked Corniche Hospital’s deputy CEO Dr Mariam Al Mazrouei.
“This award is testimony to Corniche’s mission, and part of our hospital’s commitment to patient safety,” she stated.
The ADFCA’s recognition program reviewed the work of 6,000 food establishments in Abu Dhabi.
The goal was to raise awareness of food safety, and to reinforce a commitment to high standards of quality and hygiene among suppliers in all stages of food handling including storage, preparation, processing, cooking, training, and documentation.
“ADFCA used stringent criteria while inspecting our food facilities. From the raw materials to the food that reaches the consumer’s table, ADFCA ensures that we carry out the proper sanitary and safety measures at every step. This honor recognizes our staff’s efforts and we are very proud of this achievement,” said Al Amri.
