SalusCare Earns Three-Year CARF Accreditation

OCTOBER 2021
SalusCare, Inc., Southwest Florida’s most comprehensive provider of not-for-profit mental health and substance use treatment services, has earned another three-year accreditation from CARF, the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities.

CARF International is an independent, nonprofit accreditor of health and human services.  This award represents the highest level of accreditation that can be earned by an organization and it demonstrates SalusCare’s substantial conformance to CARF standards. Organizations receiving a three-year accreditation have demonstrated to a team of surveyors a commitment to offering programs and services that are measurable, accountable, and of the highest quality.  During this survey, SalusCare was found to be in conformance with all 1,892 standards that have been set forth to earn accreditation.

 “CARF-accredited agencies demonstrate to those seeking services that the agency adheres to person-focused standards emphasizing individualized and integrated approaches to care, as well as a commitment to quality programs and services,” said SalusCare Board Chair Marshall Bower.  “I congratulate SalusCare and its professional and hard-working staff on earning yet another three-year accreditation.”

“I am so very proud of the entire SalusCare team that has worked long and hard to not only care for the needs of our patients, but to prepare and demonstrate to the CARF surveyors our amazing and compassionate care,” said Stacey Cook, SalusCare President & CEO.  “We are truly honored to care for our community and provide critical behavioral healthcare services for all.”
