Abu Dhabi, UAE, 28 July 2022: Amana
Healthcare, a Mubadala Health partner, has received a three-year accreditation from
the US-based
Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF) for its highly
specialized Amputee Rehabilitation Program.

The
sought-after CARF accreditation requires the strictest levels of accountability
and adherence to internationally accepted standards within the health and human
services fields. Following the rigorous audit of Amana Healthcare’s inpatient
rehabilitation facility, programs, and services, CARF awarded the health
provider with a three-year specialty accreditation for its Amputee
Rehabilitation Program. Accreditation by CARF assures patients that the
organization has undergone extensive auditing and inspection to ensure that its
services are the best-in-class.

With the new specialty
accreditation, Amana Healthcare, which was the first in the UAE to receive
accreditation in Comprehensive Intensive Inpatient Rehabilitation from CARF in
2016, and the first provider in the country to be specifically accredited in
rehabilitation after stroke in 2019, is now, uniquely, the first provider in the
UAE to receive a three-year CARF accreditation for amputee rehabilitation. This
fulfills a key part of its mandate to provide residents with healthcare of the
highest international standards.

In addition to CARF’s
accreditation for amputee rehabilitation services, Amana Healthcare also earned
a three-year reaccreditation for Comprehensive Intensive Inpatient
Rehabilitation, and a three-year reaccreditation for its Stroke Rehabilitation
Program.

Dr.
Jason Gray, Senior Director, Amana Healthcare, said, “We are incredibly proud
to have been awarded the three-year Amputee Rehabilitation accreditation by
CARF International, one of the world’s leading independent, nonprofit accrediting
bodies. At Amana Healthcare, our specialized inpatient rehabilitation
facility caters to patients who require intensive rehabilitation after a
life-changing event, such as an amputation, and other neurological conditions.
We offer our patients access to a wide range of multidisciplinary specialists
who collaborate closely to provide holistic care as part of our Amputee
Rehabilitation program. Amana Healthcare strives to empower patients throughout
their recovery journey so that they can return to normal and continue leading
happy and fulfilling lives. This CARF accreditation reinforces the trust we have
earned from our patients and the larger community and recognizes the hard work
and dedication of our specialists and caregivers.”  

Dr.
Gray added, “This accreditation also underpins the UAE’s vision to ensure that the
community receives world-class specialized comprehensive healthcare services
locally, without having to seek treatment abroad.”

The CARF accreditation demonstrates
Amana Healthcare’s ongoing commitment to patient care through its team of internationally
trained rehabilitation physicians, a clinical neuropsychologist, general
practitioners, internal medicine physicians, therapists, a prosthetist, and specialist
rehabilitation nurses, supported by a dedicated patient and family experience
team. Conducted within a specialized facility with state-of-the-art therapy
equipment and technology, Amana Healthcare provides comprehensive care plans
that are tailored to individual patient needs.

Dr.
Khalid Anwar, Consultant, Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation, said, “Amana
Healthcare’s highly specialized Amputee Rehabilitation program is led by a team
who deliver a multidisciplinary treatment program to restore function after
amputation and reintegrate patients back into their normal lives. The loss or
removal of a body part is a life changing experience affecting a person’s
ability to move, work, interact with others, and maintain independence, impacting
significantly on their mental health.”

“At
Amana Healthcare we address more than just the amputation, by exploring and
advocating for the best possible
recovery journey for our patients, during a critical period in their life. The
three-year CARF Amputee Rehabilitation accreditation acknowledges the work we
do in this program, which in turn exemplifies our commitment to delivering the
highest quality patient care in the UAE.” He continued.

There
are two primary causes of amputation: trauma and diabetes. Diabetes remains the
most common cause of amputation worldwide today.
