RSDH Group Chief Executive Officer Peter Hong said, “The achievement by our hospitals is no small feat given the complexities of being assessed by JCI, a leading independent authority in healthcare assessment that ensures quality of care remains a key priority for healthcare providers across the globe. I cannot be prouder of this accolade and am certain our hospitals will continue to excel in how they deliver their best to the communities they serve.”
