City Hospitals and Clinics
Client: City Hospitals and Clinics
Location: Sofia, Bulgaria
City Hospitals and Clinics, a new private health care provider in Bulgaria, entered into a collaboration with Partners HealthCare International (PHI) to develop a quality assurance program for its new Sofia hospital that will lead to a formal survey by the Joint Commission International (JCI). City Clinic’s new Sofia hospital will be the flagship facility of the City Hospitals & Clinics group. It will combine a 90-bed acute care center and a comprehensive outpatient clinic, providing a broad range of cardiovascular services, from advanced interventional treatment to open heart surgery.
PHI will conduct a major assessment of the new CHC hospital in Sofia. The work will continue over the next year, as PHI and CHC medical center staff collaborate on final preparations for CHC’s survey by JCI. That work will continue to develop and will include the review of patient-centered standards that are culturally adaptable, as well as a process that stimulates continuous improvement.
