Although several hospitals have won the ACHSI
accreditation, KBMC is the first medical centre in the Gulf to achieve such recognition, said ACHSI
chief executive officer Brian Johnston, who handed over the accreditation certificate at a ceremony held at the Crowne Plaza's Bahrain Conference Centre.
KIMS Trivandrum, a 450-bed healthcare facility in India, is the first to receive international accreditation from ACHSI
and NABH (National Accreditation Board for Hospitals) in the country.
