SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., Oct. 6, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- HonorHealth Rehabilitation Hospital, a joint venture partnership between Select Medical and HonorHealth, announced today that it has received the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities' (CARF) accreditation for the hospital, as well as specialty certifications for its stroke, brain injury and amputation programs. The prestigious accreditation marks a provider's commitment to continually enhance the quality of services and programs with a focus on patient satisfaction and outcomes.
CARF's three-year accreditation represents the highest level of certification that a rehabilitation hospital can receive. The earned honor is based on a rigorous peer review process involving an interdisciplinary team of surveyors who typically conduct a series of on-site visits, but due to COVID-19 restrictions, the review was completed virtually over a three-day period. The surveyors evaluate a hospital's commitment to offering programs and services that are measurable, accountable and high quality. The surveyors also take a deep look at a range of elements - including all aspects of patient care, programs and services offered, staff engagement, customer service, hospital culture and leadership - to inform their review.
"We are incredibly proud to have achieved CARF accreditation for HonorHealth Rehabilitation Hospital including specialty certifications for stroke, brain injury and amputation. CARF confirms HonorHealth Rehabilitation Hospital's commitment to continually enhance the quality of our services and programs with a focus on the satisfaction of patients," said Scott Keen, chief executive officer at HonorHealth Rehabilitation Hospital. "This is a meaningful achievement for both our staff and the community we serve. Our dedicated teams strive to achieve our mission and core values every day by delivering superior quality and compassion to our patients in their healing and recovery."
HonorHealth Rehabilitation Hospital is a 50-bed facility that provides rehabilitation services for patients in need of general rehabilitation or who have suffered from stroke, brain and spinal cord injuries, amputations, neurological disorders, orthopedic issues and Parkinson's disease.
