In 2009, The Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine of KHCC was awarded an international accreditation from the College of American Pathologists (CAP). This international accreditation testifies to the exceptional high quality of KHCC’s pathology and laboratory services. KHCC also received an accreditation from the Health Accreditation Council of Jordan (HCAC) which affirms that KHCC is applying the national healthcare quality standards for patient care, patient safety, and organizational excellence.
Currently, our highly qualified oncologists and healthcare professionals (163 oncologists and consultants) and 440 nurses, trained specifically in oncology nursing, work tirelessly to ensure that patients receive the latest in comprehensive cancer care. In addition, KHCC’s commitment to continuous education for its entire medical team and healthcare personnel as well as a strong fellowship program makes KHCC a world-class institution.
KHCC has established programs that focus on all stages of comprehensive cancer care: From prevention and early detection, through diagnosis and treatment, to palliative care.
KHCC treats all cancers and performs approximately 100 bone marrow transplants each year. The KHCC BMT program is one of the largest and most successful programs in the Middle East, achieving cure rates compatible with international standards. It oversees both matched allogeneic and autologous transplants. The KHCC BMT program performs transplants utilizing cord blood, making it the only program in Jordan and the second in the region that offers such a highly specialized procedure. Other non-cancer cases are also treated through the KHCC BMT program including thalassemia, aplastic anemia and other metabolic diseases.
