This accreditation is the most stringent certificate awarded to hospitals in Israel and throughout the world, reflecting the highest standard of excellence in medical care.
Mayanei Hayeshua Medical Centre was awarded the Gold Seal of Approval following an intensive week-long audit conducted by senior international JCI surveyors. During the audit, the surveyors examined every corner of the Medical Centre. The surveyors did not just audit the inpatient units and outpatient clinics, to review medical records and medical and nursing procedures, they also examined the Medical Centre’s infrastructure as well as the organisations that serve patients and employees—beginning with parking and continuing with the logistics systems (centralised oxygen and water supplies, electrical power generators, trash removal, etc.) The audit also included the Medical Centre laboratories that provide essential services for both patient care and medical research.

In more than 100 countries, JCI partners with hospitals, clinics, and academic medical centres; health systems and agencies; government ministries; academia; and international advocates to promote rigorous standards of care and to provide solutions for achieving peak performance.
