The Rehab Center at TriStar Skyline Medical Center announced today it has received re-accreditation by the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF) International for specialty stroke and inpatient rehabilitation programs.
“CARF International sets the highest standards of rehab care and we are proud to be Middle Tennessee’s only CARF accredited rehabilitation program,” said Steve Otto, chief executive officer at TriStar Skyline. “This achievement is a reflection of our rehab staff’s commitment to working with patients and their loved ones to get them back to the quality of life they deserve.”
The Rehab Center at TriStar Skyline is dedicated to navigating patients through their rehab journey with increased performance on daily activities, adapting to a disability and rehabilitating a patient to ensure they are ready to go home.
“We consider our patients our team members. Rehab is challenging and takes perseverance and empowerment from our patients to play an active role in their recovery,” said Megan Koppenhoefer, director of rehabilitation. “Our patients deserve acknowledgement for this accreditation as well for helping us establish a recognized pattern of excellence.”
CARF International institutes consumer-focused standards to help organizations measure and improve the quality of their programs and services. This accreditation decision represents the highest level of accreditation that can be awarded to an organization 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. 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.
