Inpatient Rehabilitation Programs Earn Accreditation
Milwaukee (Aug. 16, 2007) — Froedtert Hospital’s Inpatient Rehabilitation Programs have earned a three-year accreditation from CARF, the Commission on the Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities. The programs receiving accreditation include the Brain Injury, Stroke, Spinal Cord Injury, General Rehab and Outpatient Neuro rehab Programs.
CARF is an independent, nonprofit organization that has been accrediting human service programs since 1966. Its accreditation process focuses on evaluating outcomes, quality care and the satisfaction of the patients. CARF recognizes organizations that demonstrate a commitment to the continuous improvement of their programs and services with a focus on the needs and outcomes of the patients served.
“To obtain CARF accreditation is the patients’ assurance that Froedtert meets rigorous guidelines for service and quality, conforms to nationally and internationally recognized service standards and is focused on delivering the most favorable results for them,” said Julie Kerk, manager of Rehabilitation Services, Neurosciences Center.
