Princess Basma Rehabilitation Centre becomes the first Palestinian Rehabilitation Centre to receive the certification of the Joint Commission International (JCI)

Princess Basma Rehabilitation Centre (PBC) in Jerusalem became the first Palestinian National Rehabilitation Centre to receive the certification from the Joint Commission International (JCI).

Princess Basma Centre reached a new milestone in its accomplishments by receiving accreditation from the JCI in December 2015 for Ambulatory Care. The accreditation certifies that Princess Basma Centre provides a high quality standard of service provision to its patients receiving rehabilitation services.

Ibrahim Faltas, the General Director of Princess Basma Centre, thanked all staff at the Centre for their hard work and persistence in order to achieve the accreditation and added: “On the anniversary of our 50 years serving our communities, it is no doubt that in order to continue serving for another 50 years, highest standards of therapy services for our patients should be our number one priority”.

The JCI is the international branch of the Joint Commission and works in over 100 countries worldwide to provide accreditation. Hundreds of health care organizations around the world are seeking to achieve the JCI Gold Seal of Approval starting from academic medical centers and hospitals to primary care providers.

In its Rehabilitation Center, the Princess Basma Centre in Jerusalem, annually provides rehabilitation treatments to more than 650 children and more than 1000 adults from Gaza, West Bank and Jerusalem.
