ChildServe Receives CARF Accreditation
ChildServe has once again earned accreditation from CARF, an international quality rating service. CARF Accreditation is the highest quality rating a healthcare provider can receive.
To earn this distinction, ChildServe virtually welcomed a team of surveyors who looked closely at each aspect of the way we provide care, work together, and run as an organization. ChildServe was tested on 3,900 standards, and interviews were held with over 90 people including employees, families, board members, and referral sources.
“CARF Accreditation opens up our services for close examination by a team of healthcare experts from around the country. We were so proud to hear excellent feedback and positive outcomes across the board,” said Melody Bruns, Director of Community Services. “CARF Accreditation promotes best practice, quality standards and continuous quality improvement. By focusing on these standards, we are constantly looking at opportunities to enhance the lives and outcomes of the children we serve.”
ChildServe was commended for having team members who are passionate about our mission; involving kids and families in their service planning; gathering feedback; having exceptional, long-tenured leadership; and maintaining management practices that are efficient, cost-effective, and based on outcomes and consumer satisfaction.
“CARF Accreditation demonstrates ChildServe’s pursuit of excellence,” said Dave Comstock, Vice President of Home and Community Services. “Achieving the thousands of CARF standards demonstrates the commitment of our leaders and staff to provide the very best services possible to children and families. I would like to thank our leaders and staff for setting and achieving these high standards for excellence and for our mission.”
All eleven programs that applied earned a three-year CARF Accreditation:
- SCL (Hourly)
- SCL Homes
- Day Habilitation
- Day Health – Autism and Medical
- Case Management
- Mental Health
- Applied Behavioral Analysis (ABA)
