Homolka Obtains SAK Accreditation

Na Homolce Hospital successfully passed the accreditation procedure of the Joint Accreditation Committee (SAK), in which it proved that it meets all quality and safety standards in accordance with the provisions of Section 105 of Act No. 372/2011 Coll., on Health Services and Conditions of their Provision, and Decree No. 102/2012 Coll., on Evaluation of Quality and Safety of Inpatient Health Care. On the basis of this procedure, the hospital was awarded a SAK certificate of the accredited facility.

“I am very pleased that the Czech Accreditation Committee, SAK, has also evaluated and confirmed the high quality and safety of the entire patient care process at Na Homolce Hospital. It is not only an important appreciation of the professionalism and work of our employees, but also an important signal for our patients. I personally thank our medical staff for this,” said the director of the hospital Petr Polouček about the audit result.

The SAK accreditation, which is entirely voluntary in the Czech Republic, is issued on the basis of compliance with 97 standards, which is much more than 17 standards prescribed by law. It was already fifteen years ago that Na Homolce Hospital became the first hospital in the Czech Republic to receive the internationally recognised prestigious JCI (Joint Commission International) accreditation, which it confirmed every 3 years during repeated audits.

Homolka has now also gained the national accreditation by SAK, which has a long-term authorisation to carry out quality and safety evaluation of provided health services in the Czech Republic.
