Asiri Surgical and Medical Hospitals in Colombo and Asiri Hospitals Galle, and Matara, were recently awarded accreditation by the Australian Council on Healthcare Standards International (ACHSI).

The achievement of gaining an accreditation during a national crisis reaffirms the Group’s commitment in upholding high standards in patient care, safety and risk management.

ACHSI, a globally-recognised organisation awarded the accreditation based on results of its Evaluation and Quality Improvement Program. Valid for four years, the comprehensive, week-long accreditation survey was conducted in March at the four Asiri Hospitals. During the evaluation, Corporate and Clinical Management teams were interviewed, physical visits and walk rounds conducted, medical records were evaluated and detailed sessions were held with operational and ground level staff on healthcare delivery.

CEO Dr. Manjula Karunaratne said, “As a pioneer in health care services we are delighted that the accreditation serves as an independent external assessment of our continuous commitment to ensure high quality patient care. Receiving international recognition on standards of care provided to our consumers is a milestone achievement and reflective of our unceasing enthusiasm and belief to continue the important journey towards maintaining high quality care and services to the community.”

The awarded accreditation encompassed a wide range of services and activities centering around patient safety, service improvement and provision of a safe environment for patients and staff.
