Diamond Status from NHRA
In April 2021, the Manama main branch and the satellite branches in Saar and Amwaj Islands have been awarded the ‘Diamond Status’, once again, by the National Health Regulatory Authority (NHRA) of Bahrain. It is the highest level of accreditation given to hospitals by NHRA.
The accreditation is generally awarded, once every three years, after the processes and systems of healthcare facilities are thoroughly checked and assessed. It is a re-affirmation of the status awarded in 2017, for all the three locations. As the Riffa center is a new center, it will be assessed only on completion of three years of its functioning.
In May 2021, the hospital became the first private hospital in Bahrain to achieve the CAP accreditation for its Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine, and second in the country to achieve this, after the government facility King Hamad University Hospital.
ISO and OHSAS Certification
The hospital currently has the certifications of OHSAS 18001:2007 and ISO 9001:2015 for the Provision of In-patient and Out-patient Medical Services including Training, Dental, Diagnostic and Pharmacy Services from Bureau Veritas, UK.
On 17 May 2007, AMH had become the first private hospital in the Kingdom of Bahrain to have achieved an international accreditation. It achieved it through ACHS International (ACHSI), Australia's leading health care accreditation agency, which is recognized by the International Society for Quality in Health Care (ISQua), for both, its standards and its accreditations programs. And that status was reaffirmed in 2010.
In May 2020, the hospital achieved first place in two categories of Business Worldwide Magazine (BWM) 2020 GCC Business Excellence Awards.
- Best Private Non-profit Healthcare Provider - GCC
- Business Leadership and Outstanding Contribution to Healthcare - GCC - Group CEO Julia Maria Tovey.
In May 2021, CEO Today magazine listed Dr George Cheriyan, the Corporate CEO of AMH, among the winners of the Middle East Awards
