​​Dear members of the AUB community,

I am pleased to share with you that the American University of Beirut Medical Center (AUBMC) has officially received its sixth reaccreditation from the Joint Commission International, confirming our ongoing dedication to providing the safest and highest quality patient care along with adherence to globally recognized healthcare standards.

The Joint Commission International (JCI) is an independent, non-profit organization and the most established accrediting body for healthcare in the United States, with its accreditations and certifications recognized as the global standard for quality of care and patient safety. This year's accreditation process was comprehensive and rigorous, and the commendation from the JCI surveyors team recognized AUBMC as “a great organization" and the survey final result as “excellent."

This accolade is a testament to the dedication and professionalism of everyone at AUBMC. I want to thank the AUBMC leadership, faculty, and staff for their hard work and unwavering commitment. The success of this survey is largely due to the diligent efforts of the Quality, Accreditation, and Risk Management Team. Their contributions have been invaluable in achieving this result, demonstrating the collective effort that defines our approach to healthcare excellence.

As we celebrate this accomplishment, let us also view it as an opportunity to reaffirm our commitment to advancing healthcare, fostering innovation, and serving our community with the highest standards of care. Our journey of continuous improvement and commitment to excellence is what sets us apart and drives us forward.

Thank you all for your continued dedication and for playing an integral role in this significant achievement. Together, we will continue to build on our legacy of excellence and make a profound impact on the health and wellbeing of those we serve.
