NASSAU, Bahamas-- Late last year, Doctors Hospital underwent another rigorous round of scrutiny by a team from the Joint Commission International to ensure that the healthcare provider continues to uphold the highest international standards set forth by the accreditation body.
In 2014 Doctors Hospital is proud to remain the only acute care health care facility in the entire Caribbean region to boast having this international seal of accreditation.
"Health care organizations around the world want to create environments that focus on quality, safety and continuous improvement," says Paula Wilson, president and chief executive officer, JCI. "Accreditation meets this demand by stimulating continuous, systematic improvements in an organization's performance and the outcomes of patient care. The community should be proud that Doctors Hospital has made a commitment to quality and safety."
For CEO Charles Sealy, the reaccreditation three years after first getting the seal of approval from the international body really is the stamp that proves that Doctors Hospital is truly living up to the standards set out by JCI.
"Attaining the reaccreditation proves to us, to JCI, and most importantly, to our patients, that not only have we been able to achieve these standards, but we've put in place the necessary systems and processes to sustain this high level of quality health care. It's that quality continuum that really creates the confidence in the community that this is an institution that is well concerned with providing the best for its workforce and for its patients," he explains.
