Japanese Red Cross Ashikaga Hospital is proud to announce that our Joint Commission International (JCI) accreditation was successfully renewed for the 2nd time by JCI examiners on February 6, 2021. Our institution is the first in the Red Cross network, and the 9th hospital in Japan to be accredited by the JCI.
The purpose of JCI accreditation is strive for the highest levels of patient safety and continuous improvement in medical care quality. One condition is that the accredited institution have programs in place to review and improve their procedures on a continuous basis. Every three years, the hospital must renew its accreditation, and the standards are raised with each subsequent renewal, making it a truly difficult status to maintain.
The hard work of our staff, and the cooperation of those working with us, including our patients, is what has made it possible for our hospital to renew this accreditation for a second time.
Going forward, we fully plan on continuing to look for ways to improve how we work, focussing our approach from the perspective of the patient as we work to be a hospital that the citizens of the region can be truly proud of.
