St. Luke's Inpatient Rehabilitation Unit and Stroke Specialty Program Earn CARF Accreditation
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.
