Apollo Hospitals, Ranchi, has claimed to have become the first super-speciality rural heal hub in eastern India to receive the accreditation from National Accreditation Board for Hospitals and Healthcare Providers (NABH).
Chairman of Apollo Hospitals, Ranchi, Manzoor Ahmad Ansari said on Wednesday that they received the accreditation for providing quality service, safety, efficiency and accountability in patient care in the rural areas.
Speaking at a news conference in the state capital, Ansari said the NABH acknowledgement vindicated the group’s commitment towards rendering quality healthcare services to the needy all the time.
“We submitted an application seeking NABH accreditation in 2010. After more than three years of hard work that included putting in place a number of patient safety, medication management, infection control and quality staffing mechanisms, the quality accreditation was accorded,” Ansari said.
During this period, NABH experts made numerous visits to the Apollo hospitals and carried out quality assessments. The final onsite verification was done on July 7 and 8, after which the patient safety and quality of care accreditation was accorded by NABH, the company sources said.
“We are catering to sick and needy from not only Jharkhand but also from neighbouring states of Bihar, Odisha and Bengal. The benefits of NABH accreditation would directly accrue to patients who would be assured of quality health care and highest standards of safety at all times,” Ansari stressed.
