(Joint Commission International)

JCI is an international organization for assessing the level of a medical institution, established by the non-profit organization JCAHO

(Joint Commission for the Accreditation of Medical Institutions in the United States), which defines international standards.

JCI ratings are the most trusted. In order to receive JCI recognition, it is necessary to undergo thorough testing for the quality of patient care, taking into account the entire treatment process from the moment the patient enters the hospital.

At the first stage of testing, before receiving the initial certificate, clinical databases are checked within 4 months, and then, after receiving initial accreditation, for 3 years, JCI monitors the clinic’s work to meet the specified standards.

The clinic was initially accredited in 12 service areas (1214 subjects) in 2007, after which the clinic was monitored by JCI staff for 3 years and finally, 3 years later, the clinic received confirmation of accreditation for compliance with international standards.
