The Health Care Accreditation Council (HCAC) Board of Directors has granted accreditation status to Jordan Hospital during its August 13, 2008 meeting whereby Chairperson, His Excellency Mr. Saed Darwazeh, indicated that Jordan Hospital has earned this status based on their compliance to HCAC Jordanian Hospital Accreditation Standards.

Mr. Darwazeh noted that the HCAC's goal is to raise the level of quality and improve patient safety with each accreditation and that the HCAC Board has so far accredited two hospitals from the 24 pilot hospitals across Jordan involved in the HCAC Hospital Accreditation program which has been in progress for more than two years.

Mr. Darwazeh added that Accreditation by HCAC sets recipient Hospitals apart as Hospitals awarded HCAC accreditation dedicate themselves to continuous improvement in quality and patient safety within their facility.

To achieve accreditation, a hospital must undergo a voluntary thorough assessment of their entire processes to ensure compliance with HCAC Hospital Standards which are standards that are internationally accredited in their own right by the world steward of health care accreditation organizations - The International Society for Quality in Health Care (ISQua).
