Our CARF Accreditation
In February 2013, the Inpatient Rehabilitation Program at Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center received reaccreditation from the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF) for its rehabilitation, brain injury, stroke specialty, and amputation programs.
This is the sixth consecutive 3-year accreditation that the international accrediting body has awarded to Wake Forest Baptist. "The CARF philosophy and framework have facilitated our programs' person-centered and transdisciplinary approach to care as well as our development of linkages with community agencies that are essential to the system of care for persons with disability," said Amy Crews, administrative director of Rehabilitation Services at Wake Forest Baptist.
This accreditation represents the highest level of accreditation that can be awarded for rehabilitation and shows the organization's substantial conformance to 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 its commitment to offering programs and services that are measurable, accountable, and of the highest quality.
