Moscow, July 2017 - Medicina JSC Clinic, the leading Russian private clinic, has successfully passed the assessment by the Joint Commission International experts. In 2011 the clinic was the first in Russia to receive accreditation, and now once in three years it has to prove the high status of being among the best in the international field. And now the second successful re-accreditation has been achieved.

“Even the world’s most famous and reputable clinics do not always succeed in receiving the accreditation on the first try, - says Grigory Roytberg, academician of the Russian Academy of Medical Sciences, President of the Medicina Clinic. - But we manage to do it again and again, because our team is focused on the idea of quality for the patient and reliability of health care at all stages, for us its the air we breathe. There is a good reason for our clinic being the leader in the introduction of quality management systems in healthcare, and every year we share our experience with colleagues at international conferences. We want there to be more clinics like ours in the country.”

Today 978 healthcare organizations in the world are accredited by JCI. The international experts who conducted the re-accreditation inspection noted the highest level of medical care quality in the clinic and highly appreciated a number of innovations that could be introduced in other countries, including the system of experience exchange with the best world clinics and IT-technologies (smart wards and operating rooms, medical information system, a mobile application, etc.)
