The Qatargas Doha Medical Centre was recently awarded with the coveted Joint Commission International (JCI) accreditation.
As the international arm of The Joint Commission, a non-profit independent entity that accredits and certifies more than 19,000 health care organisations and programmes in the United States, JCI works with health care organisations, ministries of health, and global organisations in over 80 countries.
The certification is recognised in the United States and internationally, as a symbol of quality that reflects an organisation’s commitment to meeting certain performance standards that deliver safe and effective care of the highest quality and value.
Commenting on this achievement, Ghanim Al-Kuwari, Qatargas Chief Operating Officer- Administration said: “The health and safety of our employees and their families is a top priority for Qatargas and we make every effort to provide the best services for their welfare. This international accreditation is a testament to the excellent standard of medical services provided by the Qatargas Doha Medical Centre. I would like to congratulate the entire Qatargas Medical team on this significant achievement.”
Dr. Osama Ibrahim, Qatargas Chief Medical Officer says: “Achieving the accreditation involved intensive preparation by the medical team over the past year to ensure that we were able to pass the first audit that was concluded by the JCI team on March 1, 2012. The surveying team was impressed with the standard of medical services provided and asserted that we have raised the bar for primary health care services.”
The Qatargas Doha Medical Centre was established in December 2007 and provides primary health care services to Qatargas and RasGas employees and their families residing in Doha.
