Quality of Care
We are accredited by The Joint Commission as well as the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF) for our Inpatient Rehabilitation Unit (IRU) and Stroke Specialty program. The certification was awarded based on a rigorous peer review process and reflects the quality of the IRU's services to patients who have experienced serious illness or accidents.
Our commitment to patients extends to their families. We understand that family members may be anxious about bringing their loved one home after a stroke, so we offer a special hands-on training for family members called the Approved Rehab Caregiver (ARC) program to help prepare them.
