The Clínica Universidad de Navarra headquarters in Navarra has been an accredited centre by Joint Commission International since 2004 due to the quality and safety of the hospital.

Furthermore, in february 2014 was the first center in Spain to gain accreditation from Joint Commission International for University Hospitals.

In 2017 we were recognised for the fifth consecutive time. Outside the United States the Clinic is the second oldest reputable university hospital in the world and the only Spanish one in its category.

The Joint Commission International (JCI) is a division of the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO) which is currently the biggest accreditation organisation in the US.

The JCI certifies that a centre has reached the optimum level in carrying out the role it has been trusted with, based on the relevant criteria for the organisation and standards of good medical practice.

The accreditation means that the organisation promises to offer the best quality patient care, guarantees safe environment and works systematically to reduce risks for both patients and employees.

For this reason, the Clinic offers its patients the choice of commenting on their concerns about the quality and safety of their healthcare through the Patient Help Desk, the suggestions boxes and by informing the Joint Commission International.

The accreditation is a process in which the health organisation is evaluated by a separate and independent institution in order to determine a series of pre-requisites designed to improve the quality of care. It ́s certification is an international guarantee of good medical practice.



Why are we different from other healthcare facilities.
Quality, speed, comfort and results.
