ProVita centre receives JCIA accreditation
Dubai, February 25, 2013
Abu Dhabi-based ProVita International Medical Center has received the Joint Commission International Accreditation (JCIA) making it the only facility for the long-term care of ventilated patients to be awarded the certification outside the US.
The certification shows that ProVita was successful in meeting the international healthcare quality standards for patient care and organisation management, a statement from the center said.
JCIA standards for long-term care address quality improvement issues for non-acute settings, such as assisted-living facilities, rehabilitation centers, and chronic care facilities. Complete assessments include resident care and rights, medication management, resident and family education, infection prevention, and a variety of other performance-related topics.
Christina Shawky-Boehme, founder of ProVita, said: "This is a wonderful achievement and we are incredibly proud to have received JCIA recognition. Our motivation has always been to provide quality care of the highest standards in a personalised environment for the local community. JCIA acts as a global benchmark and their quality approval underpins our efforts."
"Receiving JCIA provides independent proof of our commitment to the highest standards of care for our patients and provides confidence in the trust that their families have extended to us,” David Printy, CEO, ProVita said. “The JCI accreditation will extend to our expanded service in the city of Al Ain, which will provide more critically needed specialised care for ventilated patients.”
“The state-of-art, 50-bed Al Ain facility is scheduled to open in March, and we are committed to upholding the very highest international standards that citizens of this region in need of specialised care for chronic conditions have previously had to travel to US or Europe for."
The specialised care offered by ProVita plays an important role in healthcare cost control, while improving quality of life and enhancing family relationships during the patients' care, the statement said. – TradeArabia News Service
