Genesys earns highest level of stroke accreditation

(GENESEE COUNTY, MI) Genesys Rehabilitation Center was awarded the highest level of accreditation by The Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF) for inpatient medical rehabilitation and stroke specialty services.
Genesys is one of only three centers in the entire state of Michigan to receive this accreditation for stroke care.

“This is a great accomplishment by the Rehab staff and physicians,” says Stacie Bommersbach, program director of Rehabilitation.

The facility and its staff are dedicated to providing comprehensive education and training so patients can become as independent as possible after experiencing such a major life altering event, Bommersbach adds. “More than 80 percent of our stroke patients are discharged back into the community, far exceeding national standards!”

To achieve CARF accreditation, the Genesys Rehabilitation Center underwent a rigorous peer review process by a team of on-site surveyors who evaluated the center and all of its programs and services. Through this visit, they determined Genesys provides the highest quality of patient care that was measurable and accountable.

HealthGrades, the nation’s leading independent health care ratings organization, named Genesys a five star hospital for stroke care, five years in a row, reinforcing what CARF surveyors found. HealthGrades also named Genesys in the top 5 percent of hospitals in the nation for stroke care.

For more information about the Genesys Rehabilitation Center and Genesys stroke care services, please call Teresa Satkowiak, Community Relations coordinator, at 810-606-7479.
