On the 29 September 2012, it was officially announced that Apollo Bramwell Hospital (ABH) has won the Gold Seal of Joint Commission International (JCI) Accreditation. After three years of dedicated and continuous work, ABH has proved to be the number one in patient safety and international quality of healthcare in the Indian Ocean.
JCI is the international arm of The Joint Commission (U.S.A.); JCI’s mission is to improve the quality and safety of health care in the international community. Local needs vary and diverse cultures present unique challenges, yet Joint Commission International (JCI) stands alone as a consistent beacon for patient safety and quality improvement in the global community. Created in 1994 by The Joint Commission, JCI has a presence in more than 90 countries today.
JCI works with health care organizations, governments, and international advocates to promote rigorous standards of care and provide solutions for achieving peak performance.
For more than 75 years, The Joint Commission (U.S.A.) and its predecessor organization have been dedicated to improving the quality and safety of health care services. Today, The Joint Commission is the largest accreditor of health care organizations in the world —it surveys nearly 16,000 health care programs through a voluntary accreditation process with over 160 hospitals JCI accredited. The Joint Commission and JCI are both nongovernmental, not-for-profit United States corporations.
Apollo Bramwell Hospital places patient safety at the heart of its service provision and has developed their quality systems in accordance with the Joint Commission International standards, and the internationally accepted clinical outcomes benchmarks.
Today by winning the Gold Seal of JCI Accreditation and being among the most privileged 385 hospitals that are JCI Accredited, Apollo Bramwell Hospital has shown improved public trust that the hospital is concerned for patient safety and the quality of care; has also provided a safe and efficient work environment that contributes to worker satisfaction; has and will negotiate with sources of payment for care with data on the quality of care. In addition, Apollo Bramwell Hospital has proven that it listens to patients and their families, respects their rights, and involves them in the care process as partners; creates a culture that is open to learning from the timely reporting of adverse events and safety concerns; and establishes collaborative leadership that sets priorities for and continuous leadership for quality and patient safety at all levels.

Jane and I wanted to thank you so much for the care you and your colleagues took of Jane whist in Mauritius. Everything went well and Prakash did a great job of getting us to your clinic and back over the 6 dialysis days. We had a wonderful holiday and our children and grandchildren plus the other family all enjoyed it enormously. Best wishes to you all
