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
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.
