Emory University Hospital's Center for Rehabilitation Medicine (CRM) has been awarded accreditation for a period of three years by CARF, an independent, not-for-profit accrediting body, for its adult Brain Injury Inpatient Rehabilitation Program, adult Inpatient Rehabilitation Program and adult Outpatient Medical Rehabilitation Program.
This is the ninth consecutive three-year accreditation outcome the CRM has been awarded by CARF.
The accreditation outcome represents the highest level of accreditation that can be awarded to an organization and shows the organization's substantial conformance to the standards established by CARF. An organization receiving a three-year accreditation outcome 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 of the highest quality measurable and accountable.
CARF is an independent, not-for-profit 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.
"Being awarding CARF accreditation for nine consecutive three-year terms is credit to our dedicated staff," says CRM director Pat Fraley. "It's a huge accomplishment to receive CARF accreditation."
Located on the Emory University Hospital Campus, the Center for Rehabilitation Medicine is a 56-bed, free-standing inpatient and outpatient facility offering comprehensive, interdisciplinary, patient-focused services to adults.
