Good Samaritan Earns Three-Year CARF Accreditation

Good Samaritan Earns Three-Year CARF Accreditation

CARF International announced that Good Samaritan has been accredited for a period of three years for its Inpatient Rehabilitation program. The latest accreditation is the seventh consecutive Three-Year Accreditation that the international accrediting body, CARF, has awarded to Good Samaritan. For the third time, the Rehabilitation Center also achieved a Three-Year Accreditation for stroke care.

This accreditation decision represents the highest level of accreditation that can be given to an organization and shows the organization’s substantial conformance to the CARF standards. An organization receiving a Three-Year Accreditation has put itself through a rigorous peer review process. It has demonstrated to a team of surveyors during an on-site visit its commitment to offering programs and services that are measurable, accountable, and of the highest quality.

“This achievement, a three-year CARF accreditation, is our seventh such award, totaling 21 years,” stated Stephen Wissel, Good Samaritan Director of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation. “We are excited to be recognized as a leading Rehabilitation facility in the United States in both Medical and Stroke Specialty Care. This award comes on the heels of being named one of the Top 225 Rehab facilities in America (2022) according to Newsweek Magazine. Good Samaritan’s Rehab is truly a world-class facility.”

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.
