DECATUR – Decatur Memorial Hospital’s outpatient medical rehabilitation program has again attained the highest level of accreditation available by the International Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF).

CARF’s three-year accreditation includes a rigorous on-site peer review process for treatment of single discipline adults, single discipline children/adolescents, multi-discipline adults, and multi-discipline children/adolescents.

These DMH outpatient rehabilitation facilities were surveyed and accredited: DMH Rehabilitation Center; Forsyth Physical Therapy; Sports Medicine and Physical Therapy; East Gate Physical Therapy; and Sullivan Medical Center.

“By pursuing and achieving accreditation, Decatur Memorial Hospital has demonstrated that we have met international standards for quality, and are committed to pursuing excellence. DMH is devoted to providing quality rehabilitation programs to our patients through the dedication of our experienced staff,” said Timothy D. Stone Jr., president and CEO.

Founded in 1966, CARF is an independent, nonprofit accrediting body that promotes quality, value and optimal outcomes through a consultative accreditation process that centers on enhancing the lives of the persons served.
