The Obstetric Anesthesiology service at Sidra Medicine, a member of Qatar Foundation, has been awarded Center of Excellence designation by the Society for Obstetric Anesthesiology and Perinatology (SOAP), for demonstrating excellence in obstetric anesthesia care.
The SOAP Center of Excellence designation recognises institutions and programmes that demonstrate excellence in obstetric anesthesia care, sets a benchmark level of expected care to improve the standards nationally and provides a broad surrogate quality metric of institutions providing obstetric anesthesia care.
Dr Franco Moscuzza, chair of the Department of Anesthesiology at Sidra Medicine, said: “I am very proud of the service’s certification by the Society for Obstetric Anesthesiology and Perinatology – an internationally recognised body that designates this status based on expert consensus and evidence based recommendations.
“The designation means that the quality and safety of Sidra Medicine’s adult anesthesiology service is on par with some of the best hospitals in the world, alongside centres such as Johns Hopkins, Stanford University and the Mayo Clinic. The certification also makes Sidra Medicine one of the only private providers of obstetric services in the GCC region to achieve this accreditation.”
The criteria for the SOAP’s Center of Excellence certification for Sidra Medicine’s service covers all aspects of obstetric anesthesia at the hospital, including personnel and staff; technology and equipment; protocol and policies; simulation and team training; emergency management and labour pain relief.
Dr Sam Soltanifar, acting division chief of Adult Anesthesiology at Sidra Medicine, said: “This award recognises the exceptional care we provide mothers choosing our hospital and highlights our ongoing commitment to providing excellence in clinical care. It is testament to the fact that some of our key services are best-in-class and equivalent to the best hospitals in the world.
“The award is acknowledgement of Sidra Medicine’s use of the most advanced and reliable forms of pain relief for labor and cesarean section, administered by highly trained team of anesthesiologists. Our service model personalises care to our female patients in a family centered environment.”
Sidra Medicine’s Women’s Services, which is a private service and does not require referrals, covers a wide spectrum of services, including obstetrics; gynaecology, maternal fetal medicine; internal and acute care medicine; reproductive medicine (including IVF); adult pain; urgent care and OB triage; aesthetic surgery and more.
