Fortis receives JCI accreditation

Fortis Hospital, Bannerghatta Road, Bengaluru, has received the Joint Commission International (JCI) accreditation, the quality gold standard for hospitals across the globe, for a third time in a row.


The achievement underscores the company's commitment for high standard quality and patient safety, that only a few select hospitals offer in the country.

"Joint Commission International is one of the largest international healthcare evaluators in the world. Its primary focus is to ensure improvement in patient safety and quality of health care through education, advisory, accreditation and certification services. We are proud to have achieved this distinction for the third time and to be looked upon as one of the most efficient multi-specialty hospitals," said Mr Karthik Rajagopal, regional director-south, Fortis Hospitals.

With this achievement, Fortis Hospital, Bannerghatta Road, becomes the third Fortis facility in India to maintain its accreditation status for the third consecutive term.

A JCI accreditation is valid for three years, following which the facility is reassessed.

Notably, Fortis Bannerghatta Road was assessed on the recently revised JCI standards, which are more stringent and demanding.
