Central Referral Hospital in Manipal receives certification from NABH

SMU Vice-Chancellor Dr Veteran General Mr Rajan S. Grewal says the procedure began almost three years ago

Central Referral Hospital in Manipal becomes the first hospital in Sikkim to receive certification from the National Accreditation Board for Hospitals (NABH). The hospital organized a press conference today at the VC Conference Hall, Manipal to announce the recognition. 
According to the Vice-Chancellor (SMU) Dr Veteran General Mr Rajan S. Grewal, the process of accreditation began to take shape almost three years ago. The process, he shared, was met with derision from his counterparts in other hospitals as well as members of his own hospital staff when it was initially mooted. He further added that the NABH standard is a guideline on how to operate in a systematic manner because the skills acquired in medical schools need certain guidelines.
The VC also acknowledged the praiseworthy contribution of the all Women team at Central Referral Hospital, led by Dr Mingma L Sherpa, Team of Managing operators, Operations executive to achieve the quality certification.
The process began on January 15th 2020, when the CRH completed and submitted a comprehensive list of documents and evidence in the NABH online Hope Portal, Quality Council India.
Head of Operations, CRH, Dr. Mingma Sherpa highlighted that the prime aim of CRH is to give quality and safe treatment to their patients and with this momentous achievement, CRH would set a trend of quality medical care in the state.
