St. Luke’s Medical Center Global City has been awarded the Joint Commission International’s Gold Seal of Approval® for Hospital Accreditation — for the third time in a row — after a successful onsite assessment last November. The hospital has been continuously fulfilling and maintaining the required criteria of JCI for the past seven years since its first accreditation in 2012. The Gold Seal of Approval® is a symbol of quality that reflects an organization’s commitment to providing safe and effective patient care.

 

During the survey, a team of Joint Commission International expert surveyors evaluated compliance with hospital standards related to a variety of areas, including the International Patient Safety Goals, Patient Assessment and Care, Anesthesia and Surgical Care, Medication Management, Patient and Family Education, Quality Improvement, Infection Prevention and Control, Governance and Leadership, Facility Management, Staff Qualifications and Education, and Information Management.

 

JCI is the international arm of The Joint Commission, the oldest and largest standards-setting and accrediting body in healthcare in the United States and the recognized leader in international healthcare accreditation. It identifies, measures, and shares best practices in quality and patient safety with the world; provides leadership and innovative solutions to help health care organizations across all settings improve performance and outcomes; and, works with hospitals and other healthcare organizations, health systems, government ministries, public health agencies, academic institutions, and businesses to achieve peak performance in patient care.
