CARF International announced Methodist Hospitals has been accredited for a period of three years for its Certified Integrated Inpatient Rehabilitation Program. Methodist has held CARF accreditation since 1973.
This accreditation decision represents the highest level of accreditation that can be awarded to an organization and shows Methodist’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 latest accreditation is one more demonstration of Methodist Hospitals’ commitment to provide the very best care to residents of Northwest Indiana,” said Matt Doyle, Methodist Hospitals’ President and CEO. “We are honored to receive it and we are grateful to the many teams across the organization whose hard work has helped us to earn it.”
