Paula Wilson, President and CEO, JCI,   said , " Joint Commission International (JCI) commends APCC for its commitment to meeting international quality and patient safety standards by earning JCI accreditation during the global pandemic. This achievement was possible by utilizing JCI's virtual survey process, where surveys are conducted through the use of technology."

Ms. Preetha Reddy, Vice Chairperson, Apollo Hospitals, said, " APCC has succeeded in making the world's most advanced radiation therapy accessible to benefit a large population. The first Proton Therapy Centre to receive the gold standard JCI accreditation in South Asia and Middle East, this milestone was achieved despite the challenges posed by the pandemic, which underscores the APCC's commitment to quality and advanced patient care."
