Genesys Rehabilitation and Stroke Center earn accreditation

(GENESEE COUNTY, MI) Genesys inpatient rehabilitation services and Genesys stroke center services were awarded a full three-year accreditation - the highest level attainable - for providing outstanding quality of patient care; for demonstrating continuous, measurable quality improvement initiatives; and for working to increase consumer satisfaction.
The Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF) extended its "seal of approval" to Genesys for meeting and exceeding the international certifying agency's rigorous quality standards through measurable performance and through effforts to continually improve services.

Genesys is the only hospital in Genesee County and one of only a few hospitals in the state to earn CARF accreditation.

Following a two-day on site survey that including inspecting the facility, services provided to patients, staff who provide the services, and the organization's philosophy and goals, the CARF survey team acknowledged that Genesys has developed an established pattern of practice excellence, and that the clinical team is committed to continuous quality improvement.

Genesys received several "exemplary" recognitions from CARF for its national best practices.

Founded in 1966, CARF is a leading independent, nonprofit agency that accredits human service organizations across the US, Canada, South America and Europe. Its mission is to promote the quality, value and optimal outcomes of services through accreditation that centers on enhancing the lives of patients served. Its goal is to develop standards that are focused on measurable patient outcomes and satisfaction.

According to CARF, "accreditation is evidence that an organization strives to improve efficiency, fiscal health and service delivery. Genesys has passed an indepth review of its services and has met our rigorous guidelines for service and quality - a qualified endorsement that Genesys conforms to nationally and internationally recognized service standards, and is focused on delivering the most favorable results for the community."

Undergoing accreditation is voluntary.
