What is CARF?
CARF stands for the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities. The CARF accreditation is voluntary survey process for rehabilitation facilities that may be sought in addition to the required Joint Commission accreditation.
CARF specializes in developing leading-edge high standards and accreditation processes specific for Rehabilitation facilities. This means that CARF accredited facilities have demonstrated conformance to proven standards for business practices and are committed to continuous quality improvement. Each provider’s commitment to excellence is periodically evaluated on site and reconfirmed annually.
