Four Asiri Group Hospitals awarded Australian Healthcare Accreditation

Published

on

At Asiri Group of Hospitals, a patient’s safety has always been a top priority, based on a framework built within foundations of knowledge, advanced technology and compassion. In recognition of the Group’s continuous pursuit of safe and high quality healthcare, Asiri Surgical and Medical Hospitals in Colombo and Asiri Hospitals Galle, and Matara, were recently awarded accreditation by the Australian Council on Healthcare Standards International (ACHSI).

As the Covid-19 pandemic continues to impact lives many are the challenges health care organisations and front-line workers face. The need for responsibly delivering high-quality care to patients and the wider community is very high. The achievement of gaining an accreditation during a national crisis reaffirms the Group’s commitment in upholding high standards in patient care, safety and risk management.

ACHSI, a globally-recognised organisation driven with an aim to ensure quality and safety standards in patient care awarded the accreditation based on results of its robust Evaluation and Quality Improvement Programme. The programme contains stringent requirements covering all clinical, operational and corporate parameters, across a broad range of key service criteria.

Valid for a period of four years, the comprehensive, week-long accreditation survey was conducted in March at the four Asiri Hospitals. During the rigorous evaluation, Corporate and Clinical Management teams were interviewed, physical visits and walk rounds conducted, medical records were evaluated and detailed sessions were held with operational and ground level staff on healthcare delivery.

Elaborating on the accreditation, Dr. Manjula Karunaratne Chief Executive Officer said “As a pioneer in health care services we are delighted that the accreditation serves as an independent external assessment of our continuous commitment to ensure high quality patient care. Receiving international recognition on standards of care provided to our consumers is a milestone achievement and reflective of our unceasing enthusiasm and belief to continue the important journey towards maintaining high quality care and services to the community.”

The awarded accreditation encompassed a wide range of services and activities centering around patient safety, service improvement and provision of a safe environment for both patients and staff. These included providing standardized, evidence based, uniform, and holistic healthcare in line with a patient’s religious and cultural beliefs, and respecting patient rights.

The ACHS International accreditation for Asiri surgical, Asiri Medical and Asiri Galle and Asiri Matara hospitals follows the Joint Commission International (JCI) Gold Seal of Approval® for Asiri Central Hospital Re-accreditation in February 2020 for demonstrating its commitment to providing safe and effective patient care.
