 National Institute for Health Specialties accredits Corniche Hospital

Dr. Mohammed Al Houqani, Secretary-General of the National Institute for Health Specialties (NIHS), has awarded a certificate of institutional accreditation to Corniche Hospital.

Based at the United Arab Emirates University, NIHS is the national body responsible for overseeing the professional development of the health workforce sector in the country.

At the awards ceremony, Dr. Al Houqani said, “NIHS is pleased to offer institutional accreditation to Corniche Hospital, which provides high-quality services for women and newborns. The accreditation surveyors inspected and reviewed the hospital’s policies and practices.

“We are glad to announce that Corniche Hospital actively complies with NIHS accreditation requirements in all five areas: governance, the training environment, trainees, faculty, and quality assurance and innovation. NIHS requirements ensure the highest professional standards, enhance the health workforce’s professional capacity, and improve medical care across the UAE. “

Paul Bosio, Chief Medical Officer and Acting CEO of Corniche Hospital, said Corniche Hospital is one of the leading maternity hospitals in the UAE where it has been providing high-quality services for over 45 years and has delivered more than 300,000 babies.

“Whilst offering the complete range of tertiary obstetrics, gynecology, and neonatology services, it also has a long history in post-graduate medical education through ACGMEi Residency and Fellowship programmes, outreach to community clinicians and a multi-professional clinician development programme in a dedicated Simulation and Education Centre,” he added.

Corniche Hospital is owned and operated by the Abu Dhabi Health Services Company (SEHA), – the UAE’s largest healthcare network, which manages the government hospitals and clinics in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi.

National Institute for Health Specialties was established by cabinet decree to spearhead, regulate, and organise professional development for the health workforce in UAE.
