One of the leading medical establishments in the kingdom has been awarded the Diamond status yet again for its caring excellence, writes Mai Al Khatib-Camille.

The American Mission Hospital (AMH) in Manama, and its Saar and Amwaj Islands Medical Centres, have been awarded the highest level among accreditation statuses given by Bahrain’s National Health Regulatory Authority (NHRA) for the second time, the first being in 2017.

After surveying AMH’s policies and procedures, the NHRA stated that the hospital has attained more than 95 per cent of the required accreditation standards to qualify for this award.

Dr George Cheriyan, AMH’s corporate CEO and Julia Tovey, the Group CEO, congratulated their staff in a letter, saying: “Your tireless efforts on the frontline each day, to improve quality, patient safety and experience, have paid off. There is no finish line for Excellence in Quality.

“The last 12 months have been particularly difficult for all of us due to the effects of the pandemic. A resilient and high performing organisation will come through this successfully.”

In 2007, AMH was also the first hospital in the kingdom to have achieved accreditation from ACHS International (ACHSI), Australia’s leading health care accreditation agency, which is recognised by the International Society for Quality in Health Care, an accreditation which was also reaffirmed in 2010.
