In November 2014, Hamad Medical Corporation’s Trauma System is the first international organization to be recognized by Accreditation Canada International’s Trauma Distinction Award.
The four year accreditation is only given to trauma systems who can demonstrate adherence to a stringent quality measures and international standards.
The Distinction program has four main components: meeting international standards of excellence, implementing protocols, achieving performance indicator thresholds and demonstrating excellence and innovation. It offers rigorous and highly specialized standards of excellence, in-depth performance indicators and protocols, and an on-site visit by expert evaluators with extensive practical experience in trauma.
Achieving Trauma Distinction demonstrates HMC’s national and regional leadership in the provision of high quality trauma care.
