Aspiring to the Highest Standards: Apex is JCI Accredited
In every facet of life, we aspire to associate ourselves with institutions or organizations that are the best at what they do. We want the best products and services we can get for our money but there are always some things that cannot be compromised. From time to time, the decision to eat fast food instead of a fresh, healthy salad is down to other factors such as convenience and price but when it comes to medical procedures, we can leave nothing to chance.
So how do we look for the best medical facilities? Reputation and recommendations are the key for most medical facilities but at Apex Medical Center, we aim even higher. Apex Medical Center is now a JCI accredited medical facility, which is one of the highest international standards achievable.
What is JCI?
JCI stands for “Joint Commission International”. It is an independent, non-profit organization “which is dedicated to improving the quality of healthcare around the world through voluntary accreditation.” Only 800 organizations from over 100 countries in the world have met the standard set by JCI. It takes years to make a medical facility ready for the JCI process, thankfully, under the leadership of our experienced and highly-qualified staff, Apex Medical Center has cleared all these criteria.
JCI accredited-hospitals are not just functioning at a higher standard than other hospitals but they are receiving all kinds of insight, training and benefit from JCI as well. Here are some of the major benefits that are conferred with accreditation.
- Periodic evaluation by JCI to make sure standards remain high.
- JCI provides expert advice and education to the medical staff, which keeps them ahead of the curve, in terms of, best practices in medicine.
- JCI accredited-hospitals attract extremely qualified staff because of this advice and training. Medical staff want to add these sought-after skills to their overall knowledge.
- All of these factors greatly add to better quality of care and safety.
Apex Medical Center is proud to adhere to this standard and we are taking steps to ensure that we never drop below this. To keep working at this level, we already have significant improvements over our competitors in Thailand. Our 10k operating rooms are state-of-the-art and we keep up to date with the latest technology in every medical field we are operating in. Our staff is regularly trained in the latest techniques and we spare no expense in equipping them with all the skills they need to be the best in the region.
Ultimately, Apex Medical Center strives to these high standards to give you, our patient, the best care possible. We want to reassure you that with JCI accreditation, we are meeting all the international standards that are set for us.
