KAUST Health Board Members
External Board Members
The KAUST Health Board is strengthened through international representation. As experts in their field, external board members bring knowledge, experience and expertise that ensures the Board continuously seeks to enhance and improve services offered through KAUST Health.
To ensure we are implementing the highest health care standards, KAUST Health uses accreditation as a tool for continuous quality monitoring, improvement and compliance with best practices. Learn about our accreditations below.
Joint Commission International (JCI)
Joint Commission International is an organization-wide set of standards covering the majority of services provided by KAUST Health. Our initial accreditation was achieved from JCI in 2016 and KAUST Health was successfully reaccredited towards the end of 2019. The next reaccreditation is due in late 2022.
Joint Commission International defines internationally accepted standards based on best practices in quality and patient safety. They work with hospitals and other health care organizations, health systems, government ministries, public health agencies, academic institutions and businesses to achieve peak performance in patient care.
Although school health is not part of the JCIA scope, the school nursing services provided are included under The KAUST School accreditation. The school nursing function has to continuously comply and aim to exceed the standards of care.
If you have any concerns about the quality and or safety of provision in KAUST Health you can report these to Joint Commission International
