"Magnet recognition demonstrates the empowerment of our nurses to provide higher quality patient care by using innovation and nursing excellence in their practice. The result is better outcomes for our patients.

"At Cleveland Clinic Abu Dhabi, we treat our patients like family. Having this international designation will serve to further energise and inspire the level of care that we provide.”

Magnet recognises hospitals that deliver better patient satisfaction, improve safety and enhance overall quality of care.

The process concluded with a site visit by officials lasting several days.

“This accreditation is an important reflection of our commitment to the people of Abu Dhabi, to whom we promised we would deliver world-class health care," said Dr Rakesh Suri, the hospital's chief executive.

"Magnet accreditation is the gold standard for nursing everywhere in the world, achieved by only the top-level hospitals, and to have earned this accreditation so early in the life of Cleveland Clinic Abu Dhabi is a reflection of the excellence provided by our nursing team.”
