Biolab Takes Leading Steps by Increasing the Number of Branches Accredited by HCAC
Three new Biolab branches were accredited by the Health Care Accreditation Council (HCAC) to become a total of six branches as announced today by Biolab Founder and CEO Dr. Amid Abdelnour during a launch event held by Biolab in Amman. Three previous branches were also accredited by HCAC in 2017, granting Biolab the status of becoming the first stand alone laboratory in the Kingdom to obtain such accreditation. Biolab, the Kingdom’s leading accredited diagnostic laboratory, offering more than 700 medical diagnostic services across 17 branches, attained this accreditation to fulfill its ultimate goal in providing its patients with the best laboratory and diagnostic services in the Kingdom.
Dr. Abdelnour honored the accredited branches during the event for their hard work and dedication starting with the three new accredited branches, followed by the first three branches that earned the accreditation. Biolab’s CEO and founder, Dr. Amid Abdelnour affirmed Biolab’s commitment to its patients through providing them with high quality services saying, “We are proud to announce obtaining the HCAC accreditation for three more of our branches, to reach a total of six accredited Biolab branches across the Kingdom. This step demonstrates our commitment towards our patients by offering patient-centered care with the highest standards of safety, quality, efficiency and effectiveness. We are honored to be the first independent laboratory to receive the HCAC accreditation in Jordan.”
It is worth noting that the Health Care Accreditation Council (HCAC) is Jordan and the region’s only nonprofit ISQua accredited institution dedicated to improving the quality of health care services and promoting patient safety through accreditation, consultation and capacity building.
