Cleveland Clinic Abu Dhabi, a Mubadala Health partner, proudly announces that its Emergency Department has been awarded the prestigious Emergency Nurses Association’s (ENA) 2023 Lantern Award. This award, which is valid for three years, recognizes emergency departments that demonstrate exceptional and innovative performance in leadership, practice, education, advocacy, and research.
The Lantern Award highlights Cleveland Clinic Abu Dhabi’s accomplishments based on evidence-based practice and innovation in emergency care. The award serves as a symbol of the hospital’s commitment to quality, safety and maintaining a healthy work environment.
“We are immensely proud to receive the Lantern Award for our Emergency Department," said Dr. Jorge Guzman, Chief Executive Officer of Cleveland Clinic Abu Dhabi. "This prestigious honor not only highlights our dedication to delivering exceptional emergency and nursing care but also reinforces our position as a world-class hospital within the UAE and global healthcare ecosystem. It underscores our commitment to quality, safety, and continuous innovation, ensuring our patients receive the highest level of healthcare.”
Cleveland Clinic Abu Dhabi's Emergency Department is among 53 winners to be honored with this award this year. In 2020, Cleveland Clinic Abu Dhabi was one of the first hospitals to receive this award outside of the United States, demonstrating its commitment to delivering exceptional nursing care internationally.
As part of the evaluation process, the hospital was reviewed in five fundamental areas namely, leadership in practice, leadership in operations, education, advocacy, and research practice. Key clinical practice exemplars that qualified its win were focused on improving patient care and workflow efficiency through collaborative triage, timely admissions, and enhanced pain assessment and management. Some initiatives driven by the emergency department focused on receiving the best patient outcomes by reducing nursing turnover, preventing workplace stress and injuries, prioritizing patient satisfaction, and providing insightful training to nursing staff.
These innovations by Cleveland Clinic Abu Dhabi’s Emergency Department led to key wins such as having less than 45 minutes of door-to-IV Thrombolysis for stroke, maintaining less than 60 minutes of STEMI door-to-balloon time and taking less than 10 minutes to maintain a high-quality arrival-to-triage time. These achievements further reaffirm the hospital as the benchmark for delivering exceptional care to patients and position the UAE as a hub for life sciences. As a recipient, Cleveland Clinic Abu Dhabi will be recognized during the Emergency Nurses Association’s annual conference in San Diego between September 21-23.
