Similarly, Apollo Hospitals in Hyderabad initiated their JCI journey in 2006 and achieved their 7th JCI reaccreditation concurrently with Chennai in March 2024.

In Bangalore, the JCI journey commenced in 2008, with the hospital achieving its 6th JCI reaccreditation in October 2023, showcasing sustained commitment to quality and safety. Kolkata’s journey began in 2009, and the hospital recently completed its 5th JCI reaccreditation in September 2021, further solidifying its dedication to excellence.

The culmination of these successful reaccreditations reflects Apollo Hospitals Group’s unwavering dedication to providing world-class healthcare services across its network of hospitals, ensuring patient safety, and delivering superior quality outcomes.

JCI accreditation is a prestigious recognition bestowed upon healthcare organizations that demonstrate adherence to rigorous standards of care. For Apollo Greams Road, this accreditation signifies a steadfast dedication to excellence in healthcare delivery, encompassing patient safety, quality of care, and effective leadership and governance. To achieve accreditation, hospitals must adhere to 1182 measurable outcomes, ensuring comprehensive and rigorous standards are met across various aspects of healthcare delivery.

JCI accreditation holds significant importance for both patients and healthcare professionals. For patients, it ensures access to high-quality healthcare services, instilling confidence and trust in the care provided. For doctors, affiliation with a JCI-accredited hospital signifies a commitment to professional excellence and continuous improvement in patient care practices.
