Hospital da Luz Imagiology With Renewed Quality Certification
After the certification obtained in August 2015, the Imagiology Centers of Hospital da Luz Lisboa, Hospital da Luz Clínica de Oeiras and Hospital da Luz Clínica da Amadora, which share coordination, protocol and procedure synergies, implemented a Quality Management System, according to norm NP EN ISO 9001:2008, obtaining once again quality certification by Bureau Veritas, on June 22, 2016.
The audit report evidenced as best practice the technical and medical competence, as well as the exceptional quality of infrastructures and technological resources, not identifying nonconformities.
The certified services of the group’s three units were subject to internal audit, performed by the Accreditation and Quality Certification Board of Luz Saúde Group, and external audit, performed by Bureau Veritas Certification, thus now being certified in the scope of diagnostic and therapeutic complementary exams, namely:
- Bone densitometry
- Orthopantomography and cephalometry
- General and fluoroscopic radiography
- Magnetic resonance (MR)
- Computed tomography (CT)
It’s worth noting that this quality certification also comprises the area of lithotripsy of Hospital da Luz Lisboa.
The implementation of the Quality Management System and the application for certification are part of the group’s objectives of attaining excellence and becoming a reference in healthcare services. In this context, Luz Saúde Group promotes certification projects of its units’ services in order to ensure their quality and continual improvement.
