JCI, GHA and Temos have all added more hospitals, clinics and countries.
With 900-plus accredited organizations in 68 countries, Joint Commission International is the largest international accreditor. In 2017 three new countries joined the JCI global community: Cambodia, Georgia, and Myanmar.
Global Healthcare Accreditation (GHA) has accredited four hospitals and clinics:
- Bumrungrad International Hospital, Thailand
- Cleveland Clinic Ohio, USA
- My Spine Center of Clínica Santa Clarita, Mexico

All have three-year terms of accreditation from GHA. GHA standards address a hospital’s performance in three core competencies: patient-focused clinical processes, patient experience, and sustainable business processes. In preparation for on-site evaluation, each organization completed a comprehensive review of policies, procedures, and services on medical travel care and prepared to improve any areas that did not comply with GHA standards.
