The Joint Commission International (JCI), an independent nonprofit organization, is the global leader in health care accreditation. Their standards and survey process help organizations worldwide improve the quality and safety of patient care. The JCI re-accreditation process is rigorous when it comes to assessing compliance with excellent standards of care and safety. 

This year the re-accreditation of Cambridge Medical and Rehabilitation Center (CMRC) was accompanied by an outstanding survey report and exceptional scoring in keeping with their very rigorous standards. 

The Group Chief Executive Officer for CMRC, Dr. Howard Podolsky, commented on this milestone: “Cambridge Medical and Rehabilitation Center (CMRC) is the preeminent provider of post-acute care services throughout the UAE. In keeping with our commitment to providing world-class, long-term care and post-acute rehabilitation, I am very pleased and honored to have CMRC, once again, be fully accredited by the Joint Commission International as the gold standard for exceptional quality care and patient safety. This outstanding accomplishment is a reflection of the professionalism, passion, and commitment we have to the provision of post-acute care for the wonderful patients and families of the United Arab Emirates.”

To obtain re-accreditation, organizations must demonstrate the following standards: access to care and continuity of services, patient and family rights, assessment of needs, quality management and improvement, prevention and control of infections, organization leadership, safety of the care environment, staff qualifications and education, and a great deal more compliance with JCI standards of care and safety. CMRC has clearly demonstrated leadership in patient care by creating a second home experience for patients and their families, minimizing risks of infections, and improving outcomes with an interdisciplinary clinical approach.

CMRC is proud that we continue to be part of the UAE’s vision of being a world leader in the provision of healthcare services for all patients and their families in the process.”
