DELRAY BEACH – Delray Medical Center has announced that its Pinecrest Rehabilitation and Outpatient Hospital has received 3-year accreditation status as a Comprehensive Integrated Inpatient Rehabilitation Program from CARF International, a not-for-profit accreditor.
Hospital officials said this accreditation decision represents the highest level of accreditation that can be awarded to an organization through CARF 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 and has demonstrated to a team of surveyors during an on-site visit that its programs and services are of high quality, measurable and accountable. “We strive to provide the best service possible,” said Chief Executive Officer, Mark Bryan, “This most recent 3 year CARF accreditation is continued evidence that Pinecrest Rehabilitation and Outpatient Hospital provides the highest quality and patient centered care.
According to the Director of Rehabilitation Services at Pinecrest, Cheri Archer, “This accreditation is an affirmation of the three-year designation from the Florida Department of Health Brain and Spinal Cord Injury Program as an adult brain and spinal cord injury inpatient rehabilitation program received earlier this year in March.”
Pinecrest Rehabilitation and Outpatient Hospital offers a variety of therapies, including cognitive rehabilitation, adaptive driving evaluation and treatment, hand therapy, electrical stimulation for dysphagia, Bioness therapy for foot drop, Saeboflex for upper extremities and a comprehensive outpatient therapy program.
