The University Hospital of Torrevieja recognised
as one of the best hospitals in the world

TORREVIEJA HOSPITAL scores a prestigious gold award as a centre of excellence after achieving recognition for world-class patient care from the Joint Commission International - an independent accreditation body that measures the performance of medical centres across the world.

The JCI inspects more than 1,200 criteria relating to patient safety, continuity of care, patient rights and family access; and the quality of care delivered by the hospital on a daily basis.

The organisation performs a meticulously comprehensive healthcare evaluation that's so precise, only 3 medical centres in Germany and just 1 in the United Kingdom meet their exhaustive requirements for excellence.

Usually reserved for private hospitals, the award is internationally recognised as the mark of outstanding achievement in the field of medical care, and globally accepted as the single most prestigious award to be bestowed upon any medical practice - private or public.

The gold standard award is so difficult to achieve that Torrevieja Hospital is only the fourth public hospital in Spain to receive the international honour, and the second public hospital in the Valencian Community.

Torrevieja Hospital's Health Department Manager, Dr Jose Antonio Velasco stated "This accreditation guarantees that the care provided to the patient meets the highest levels of quality and safety and means consolidating us as a highly reliable hospital where the patient is our primary concern. This has been accredited by the world's leading evaluation entity".

Manuel Bosch, Quality Care Manager for Ribera Salud, the company that operates the University Hospital of Torrevieja on behalf of the local community, said: "There is a clear commitment to improving the quality of patient care. The JCI makes us even more determined to continue to maintain excellence from every point of view".

The Director of Operations for Ribera Salud, Elisa Tarazona, added "We are sure that this prestigious accreditation awarded to the Hospital of Torrevieja, will be just cause for pride as it places the Valencian healthcare community in the international vanguard of health and undoubtedly, the professionals who have worked so hard to obtain it deserve congratulations".

More than 200 people attended the awards ceremony at the hospital to hear the result of the evaluation. Once the gold standard announcement was made, the professionals at the hospital were overjoyed. The award is valid for the next three years.
