Accrediting Body Visits Spectrum

The Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF) will be at Spectrum August 29 and 30 to survey all aspects of the facility's operations.

Similar to the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO), CARF rates an organization's operation and gives a one-, two- or three-year accreditation. For significant deficiencies it can deny accreditation. The results of the survey will be available about six weeks after the visit.
