UofL Health – Frazier Rehabilitation Institute has again earned a three-year accreditation from the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF). This important distinction sets Frazier Rehab Institute apart from our competitors and exemplifies our ongoing focus on quality, continuous improvement and innovation in patient care.
Recognizing the impact the current COVID-19 pandemic has had on organizations, CARF offered a virtual “bridge survey” process to organizations with a longstanding history of being fully accredited. Frazier Rehab Institute was the first organization to undergo this type of CARF survey on June 18. The result was a full re-accreditation of the general Comprehensive Integrated Inpatient Rehabilitation Program, the Spinal Cord System of Care for Inpatients and Outpatients, the Stroke Specialty Program and the Brain Injury Specialty Program for Inpatients and Outpatients. This full accreditation extends through February 2023.
Cathy Spalding, chief administrative officer for Frazier Rehab Institute shared, “Preparing for accreditation is a long and challenging process – especially during an organizational transition and a global pandemic! Not only did the team demonstrate Frazier Rehab Institute’s continual commitment to raising the bar in rehabilitation care, but how the organization exceeds the highest standards of care on behalf of the very vulnerable population we serve.”
Congratulations to the entire Frazier Rehab Institute team, and to all who participated in the preparations for the successful CARF survey.
