CARF International Accreditation
The Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF International) 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 first accredited in the fall of 2012, the year the hospital opened.
Since 2012 the hospital has been awarded specialty accreditation for the following adult rehabilitation programs:
- Amputation Specialty
- Brain Injury Specialty
- Comprehensive Integrated Inpatient Rehabilitation
- Spinal Cord Specialty
- Stroke Specialty
These achievements make WellSpan Surgery & Rehabilitation Hospital one of only eight in the mid-Atlantic region to earn all five accreditations, and the only hospital in south-central Pennsylvania with that distinction. 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.
