HRBR have recently been awarded Joint Commission International accreditation. This award is internationally recognised as the gold standard in health care. HRBR joins some of the premier patient care and health facilities in the world in achieving this status and is the first hair transplant clinic in the world to do so. This further confirms HRBR as the world’s leading hair transplant clinic. Our patients can be assured that when it comes to patient care, safety and quality they are in the hands of world class healthcare professionals.
What is JCI Accreditation?
JCI accreditation is considered the gold standard in global health care. JCI is the world’s leader in health care accreditation and works rigorously to improve patient safety and the quality of health care in the international community. It does this through the development and evaluation of the most rigorous international patient care standards. Accredited organisations are constantly re-evaluated to ensure they maintain the highest level of patient care.
JCI operates in more than 100 countries and HRBR, in achieving this accreditation, has joined the ranks of the most respected patient care clinics and hospitals anywhere in the world such as the Blackrock Clinic (Ireland), The Mater Private (Ireland), the Mayo Clinic (USA), The Cleveland Clinic (USA) and the King Faisal Hospital (Saudi Arabia).

Why did HRBR want to be Accredited with JCI?
At HRBR, patient care is at the centre of everything we do. Did you know that there is no regulation of the hair transplant or hair restoration industry in Ireland or the UK? Anyone can set up a hair transplant clinic and start carrying out procedures regardless of their qualifications or experience. There are no regulations with regards to basic standards of hygiene, safety, quality or equipment.
HRBR has been vocal in their concerns with this lack of regulation for many years.
What is the fallout from the lack of regulation in the hair transplant industry?
Unfortunately, this lack of regulation invariably impacts patients. We have treated many patients who seek repair work as a result of bad hair transplants being carried out in Ireland, the UK, Turkey and beyond, by staff with little or no training or experience.
We hope that having achieved JCI accreditation, we continue to raise the standards of the hair transplant industry globally, so that in the future HRBR no longer needs to offer repair services.
Why would you want your Hair Transplant Clinic to be JCI accredited?
As there are no regulations within the hair transplant sector, it is very difficult for patients to assess where to go to receive good quality care from experienced and qualified doctors. We have secured this accreditation to make it simpler for patients to make choices in relation to treating their hair loss.
Achieving JCI accreditation is confirmation that HRBR has taken the extra steps to meet the high level of safety and quality standards set by JCI.
JCI accreditation, along with our qualified and experienced surgeons, our world class facility and our global reputation sets HRBR apart from any other hair transplant clinic anywhere in the world and our results simply speak for themselves.
