Hospital’s Brain Injury Specialty Program also receives its first accreditation
Bethany Children’s Health Center announced that it has been reaccredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF) for a period of three years for its Pediatric Medical Rehabilitation Program. This is the fifth time Bethany Children’s has been reaccredited by CARF since 2012.
This accreditation decision represents the highest level of accreditation that can be awarded to an organization and shows the organization’s substantial conformance to the CARF standards. An organization receiving a Three-Year Accreditation has put itself through a rigorous peer review process and has demonstrated to a team of surveyors during an on-site visit that its programs and services are measurable, accountable and of the highest quality.
“Bethany Children’s Health Center has once again demonstrated its strong commitment to its patients by achieving full 3 year CARF Accreditation for its Inpatient Rehabilitation Program with Pediatric and Brain Injury Specialty Program Designation,” says Terrence Carolan, Managing Director for Medical Rehabilitation at CARF International. “CARF accreditation is a highly visible recognition of service, quality and performance improvement excellence to patients, the healthcare industry and the entire community, and this is the 5th time that Bethany Children’s Health Center has achieved CARF accreditation since 2009.”
“We are extremely proud to receive this renewed accreditation from CARF,” said Becky Vogt, Chief of Rehabilitation and Education at Bethany Children’s Health Center. “Our Rehabilitation team is committed to providing the highest level of services to our patients and their families, and continuously looks for ways to improve our patient experiences, treatments and outcomes.”
CARF is an independent, nonprofit accrediting body whose mission is to promote the quality, value, and
optimal outcomes of services through a consultative accreditation process that centers on enhancing
the lives of the persons served. Founded in 1966 as the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation
Facilities, and now known as CARF, the accrediting body establishes consumer-focused standards to
help organizations measure and improve the quality of their programs and services.
