9 “This accreditation is essential and is a testimony that the Centre continues to provide high quality services for patients according to international standards,” the organization said on its website. The General Director of the Jerusalem Princess Basma Centre, Ibrahim Faltas, thanked all staff at the Centre for their hard work and persistence in achieving the accreditation for the second time. “We are one of the lead organizations that work on developing knowledge and expertise in the field of child rehabilitation,” she said. “Receiving this accreditation is clear evidence of the high level of scientific and clinical competence and a clear commitment for quality of service provision for our patients.” Violette Mubarak, the Director of the Centre, added: “Our equipped and skilled team is committed to providing high quality rehabilitation services to our patients. By achieving this accreditation, the patients and their families will have confidence that the facility has met strict criteria in patient’s safety, quality delivery of clinical care, and overall patient support.” The JCIA provides accreditation to hundreds of health care organizations in more than 100 countries worldwide. Its accreditation is the gold standard seal of approval. The Jerusalem Princess Basma Centre provides rehabilita- tion treatments to more 700 children a year, creating positive changes in their lives and the lives of their families. It is one of several health care ministries operated by the Anglican Diocese of Jerusalem. In December, the Archbishop in Jeru- salem, Suheil Dawani, has issued an emergency appeal after the outpatient’s clinic of the diocese’s al-Ahli Arab Hospital in Gaza collapsed. The latest edition of Anglican World magazine – the last edition of Anglican World in its current format—featured the work of the Jerusalem Princess Basma Centre. JERUSALEM PRINCESS BASMA CENTRE SECURES SECOND SUCCESSIVE INTERNATIONAL ACCREDITATION The Diocese of Jerusalem’s rehabilitation centre for children with disabilities, which the Compass Rose Society supports, has obtained its second consecutive audit from the Joint Commission International Accreditation (JCIA). The Jerusalem Princess Basma Centre, on the Mount of Olives, provides a structured program of holistic care for Palestinian children from the West Bank, East Jerusalem, and Gaza. In December 2015 it received its first three-year JCIA accreditation, becoming the first – and to date, the only – Palestinian rehabilitation centre to receive such international accreditation. It has now completed its second audit, gaining accreditation for the next three years.
