What is CARF accreditation?

When considering a rehabilitation provider, how do you evaluate the different available options? Where do you look to determine which providers may offer the highest quality services? The answer is CARF International.

CARF International is an independent, nonprofit accreditor of health and human services providers in the areas of Aging Services, Behavioral Health, Child and Youth Services, Durable Medical Equipment, Employment and Community Services, Medical Rehabilitation, Opioid Treatment Programs, and Vision Rehabilitation Services.

Programs and services that are CARF-accredited have demonstrated their conformance to internationally-recognized standards for service delivery. They have demonstrated their commitment to continuous quality improvement and a consumer-driven focus.

Person-centered services

Persons served play an active and vital role in the CARF accreditation process, from helping to develop the international performance standards to giving input on the quality of services they receive. Through accreditation, providers demonstrate their belief that all people have the right to be treated with dignity and respect, have access to needed services that achieve optimum outcomes, and are empowered to exercise informed choice. Siskin Hospital is pleased to join CARF in this mission.
