CARF, the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities, has
announced that St. Luke’s Inpatient Rehabilitation Unit earned accreditation
as a Comprehensive Integrated Inpatient Rehabilitation Program and as
a Stroke Specialty Program.
This represents the highest level of accreditation that can be given to
an organization. It shows the organization’s substantial adherence
to the CARF standards. An organization receiving a Three-Year Accreditation
has put itself through a rigorous peer review process. It has demonstrated
to a team of surveyors its commitment to offering programs and services
that are measurable, accountable and of the highest quality.
“Achieving accreditation is an indication of St. Luke’s Inpatient
Rehabilitation Unit’s dedication and commitment to improving the
quality of the lives of people we serve,” St. Luke’s Director
of Rehabilitation Services Brett Osborne said. “It’s something
we are very proud of.”
CARF is an independent, nonprofit accrediting body whose mission is to
promote the quality, value and optimal outcomes of services. This is done
through a consultative accreditation process, focusing on the continuous
improvement of services centered on enhancing the lives of the persons
served. Founded in 1966, the accrediting body establishes consumer-focused
standards to help organizations measure and improve the quality of their
programs and services.
