Doobay Medical & Research Centre cops Green Initiative/Environmental Award
At the recent awards ceremony hosted by the Guyana National Bureau of Standards (GNBS), non-profit organisation Doobay Medical & Research Centre Inc (DRMC) was awarded the Green Initiative/Environmental Requirements Award by the agency, as it participated in the quality awards for Small Business Services.
Prior to receiving the award, an audit was conducted to determine the laboratory’s Quality Management Principles in seven areas, which include customer focus, improvement and safety. Upon this evaluation, the said award was presented to DRMC at the simple ceremony.
The DMRC laboratory had been certified by GNBS in its Haematology and Clinical Chemistry departments on June 5, 2018. In August 2018, the laboratory expanded its services to include Serology (Malaria, Dengue, and H.pylori) and Urology (urinalysis, pregnancy) testing. The laboratory has two qualified and licensed medical technologists.
The non-profit opened its doors for service and business on September 11, 2011, providing affordable and quality healthcare services to the public. Initial service offered included only dialysis, as it is the largest dialysis provider in the Caribbean; however, to further extend its humanitarian reach, the company has expanded its services and is now offering: laboratory testing, radiology services, gastroscopy and outpatient services—where they house a general medical practitioner, internist, gynaecologist and gastroenterologist.
