• Interdisciplinary Outpatient Medical Rehabilitation Programs: Brain Injury Programs (Adults)

• Residential Rehabilitation Programs: Brain Injury Program (Adults)

ReMed’s latest survey report stated that “the mission and values of the organization are exemplified in the delivery of services. The leadership is commended for the vision of creating programs primarily for the brain injury specialized population” and “all members of the organization demonstrate a commitment and culture of service excellence with a focus on function.”

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 the highest quality, measurable, and
accountable.

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 that centers on enhancing the lives of the persons served. Founded in 1966 as the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities, and now known as CARF, the accrediting body establishes consumer-focused standards to help organizations measure and improve the quality of their programs and services.
