Awards & Recognitions

At WellSpan Surgery & Rehabilitation Hospital we strive for the highest level of quality in every aspect of patient care. We are proud to be recognized by the following organizations for our commitment and achievements.

CARF International

CARF InternationalFounded 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. CARF accreditation is considered the gold standard for rehabilitation hospitals and demonstrates that a facility meets rigorous national and international standards for quality patient care outcomes. WellSpan Surgery & Rehabilitation Hospital was accredited in the fall of 2012 – the year the hospital opened – and re-accredited in 2015.

In 2016 WellSpan Surgery & Rehabilitation Hospital became the first hospital in Southcentral Pennsylvania – and one of only 10 in the state – to be awarded a prestigious three-year specialty accreditation from CARF International for inpatient brain injury rehabilitation. In 2017 the hospital was awarded a specialty accreditation from CARF International for our inpatient stroke program. Our goal for 2018 is to pursue CARF specialty accreditation for our inpatient spinal cord injury and amputation rehabilitation programs.

These accreditations represent the highest level that can be awarded by CARF to an organization and are marks of excellence for programs’ quality of care.
