Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates: Cleveland Clinic Abu Dhabi, part of the M42 network, proudly announces that the Fatima bint Mubarak Center has received the highly coveted Joint Commission International (JCI) three-year accreditation. This recognition, which is an extension of Cleveland Clinic Abu Dhabi’s accreditation, reinforces the center’s commitment to excellence in healthcare and elevates its status as a pioneer in cutting-edge cancer care in the UAE and wider region.

Being recognized by the world’s preeminent international accreditation body further cements our position as a healthcare leader providing world-class care closer to home.”
