Five Hamad Medical Corporation (HMC) facilities and services have been honored for achieving Certification for Excellence in Person-Centered Care at a special ceremony attended by HE Dr. Hanan Mohamed Al Kuwari, Minister of Public Health.
The five sites; the Communicable Disease Center, the Home Healthcare Service, the Private Nursing Service, the Ambulatory Care Center, and the Enaya Specialized Care Center, were part of a pilot program to achieve Certification in Person-Centered care from Planetree International.
During the ceremony, speakers explained that great care is more than having highly qualified teams, the latest technology or the best services and new facilities. It is also about treating and interacting with patients in a way that respects their values, preferences and needs. Achieving Planetree’s Person-Centered Care Certification for HMC’s facilities is one of many initiatives the Corporation is engaging in as a health system on its journey towards a more person-centered approach to care and a real, transformative partnership with patients, their family members and care partners.
