ProVita, the region's first long-term care provider, continues to spearhead quality standards

ProVita was successful in meeting the international healthcare quality standards for patient care and organisation management in a long-term care environment.

JCIA standards for long term care address quality improvement issues for non-acute settings, such as assisted-living facilities, rehabilitation centers, and chronic care facilities. Complete assessments include resident care and rights, medication management, resident and family education, infection prevention, and a variety of other performance-related topics.

Christina Shawky-Boehme , founder of ProVita, said, "This is a wonderful achievement and we are incredibly proud to have received JCIA recognition. Our motivation has always been to provide quality care of the highest standards in a personalised environment for the local community. JCIA acts as a global benchmark and their quality approval underpins our efforts."

CEO David Printy added, "Receiving JCIA provides independent proof of our commitment to the highest standards of care for our patients and provides confidence in the trust that their families have extended to us. The JCI accreditation will extend to our expanded service in the city of Al Ain, which will provide more critically needed specialized care for ventilated patients. The state of art, 50 bed Al Ain facility is scheduled to open in March 2013. We are committed to upholding the very highest international standards that citizens of this region in need of specialized care for chronic conditions have previously had to travel to USA or Europe for."

The specialized care offered by ProVita plays an important role in healthcare cost control, while improving quality of life and enhancing family relationships during the patients' care.
