Bahrain hospitals win Australian accreditation
Manama, June 18, 2013
Two Bahrain-based hospitals, KIMS Bahrain Medical Centre (KBMC) and the Royal Bahrain Hospital (RBH), have raised their healthcare standards with accreditation from the Australian Council on Healthcare Standards International (ACHSI).
The accreditation was given after both the private medical units met the requirements of the Australian Commission on Safety and Quality in Health Care
While KBMC has been re-accredited after proving its continued commitment to maintaining very high standards of healthcare delivery, RBH has made its mark as the fastest accredited hospital after launch in the Kingdom, said a senior official.
“This accreditation was granted in recognition of our commitment to continuous improvement in quality of patient care, service and safety, which meets the international guidelines by the Board of Australian Council,” remarked KIMS Group chairman Dr Mohammed Sahadulla.
“Medical care delivery systems are growing increasingly complex and handling more and more patients with each passing day. As such, it is critically important to have in place a template for delivery of services that will offer high quality medical attention as well as safety. We are proud that RBH has proven that it has this commitment and won the accreditation within two years of its establishment,” he stated.
RBH and KBMC chief operating officer Dr. Ravi Preet Singh said the accreditation was a very encouraging sign for the Group because it validated their efforts to put in place very high standards of care.
“To the patients, the accreditation is a vote of confidence from experts that their medical facility is on the right track to ensure and implement the highest standards of care. The ACHSI accreditation comes at a right time as the KIMS Group expects that international accreditation will soon be made compulsory for all healthcare institutions in GCC countries,” he added.-TradeArabia News Service
