The PCC Recognition Ceremony at Enaya Specialized Care Center was officiated by Dr. Hanadi Khamis Al Hamad, Medical Director of Rumailah Hospital and Qatar Rehabilitation Institute (QRI) and Acting Chief Executive Officer of QRI, along with Mr. Nasser Al Naimi, Deputy Chief of Quality for Center for Patient Experience and Staff Engagement, Director for Hamad Healthcare Quality Institute, and Chairperson of 16000 Health Sector Services.
Dr. Hanadi Khamis Al Hamad was very appreciative of the PFAC in her facility.
“The PFAC in Enaya Specialized Care Center works in collaboration with our clinical and administrative staff in the facility. Our PFAC members are very open to share their perspectives on how we can improve our services and initiate actions within the context of a person-centered approach to the delivery of care. Their contributions to promote a culture of PCC in Enaya have made significant impacts to our patients, the family members, our staff, and to the reinforcement of a person-centered healthcare system in HMC,” she said.
Mr. Fahad Al Qadi who has been a member of the Enaya & DAAM PFAC for a number of years, said: “My feedback and ideals do matter to them.
