FWB Medical Center Rehabilitation Institute Earns CARF Accreditation
For the eighth consecutive term, the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF International) announced that Fort Walton Beach Medical Center/The Rehabilitation Institute of Northwest Florida has been accredited for a period of three years for its Inpatient Rehabilitation Program and Stroke Specialty Program.
This designation represents the highest level of accreditation that can be given to an organization for substantial conformance to the CARF standards. Organizations that receive a three-year accreditation participate in a rigorous peer review and onsite surveyor process to demonstrate a strong commitment to offering programs and services that are measurable, accountable, and of the highest quality.
CARF is an independent, nonprofit accrediting body whose mission is to promote the quality, value, and optimal outcomes of services through a consultative accreditation process and continuous improvement services that center on enhancing the lives of the persons served. Founded in 1966 as the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities, and now known as CARF International, the accrediting body establishes consumer-focused standards to help organizations measure and improve the quality of their programs and services.
