Baptist Rehab-Germantown Receives Maximum Accreditation

Hospital earns accreditation for more programs than any other in the Mid-South

GERMNATOWN, Tenn. - The Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities recently accredited 14 Baptist Rehabilitation-Germantown programs. The programs include: rehabilitation hospital for adults, children and adolescents; amputation specialty program for adults, children and adolescents; inpatient and outpatient brain injury specialty program for adults, children and adolescents; inpatient and outpatient stroke specialty for adults, skilled nursing for adults; outpatient medical rehabilitation for adults, children and adolescents and pediatric specialty program.

CARF offers the highest accreditation a rehabilitation hospital can achieve. Health care facilities accredited by CARF must demonstrate that patients served are benefiting from the facilities' services. To receive a three-year accreditation, organizations must undergo a rigorous peer review and show a team of surveyors during an on-site visit that the organization is committed to following CARF's accreditation conditions and standards. This is the third consecutive time Baptist Rehab-Germantown earned a three-year CARF accreditation.

"This is a huge achievement for our employees, physicians and the hospital," said Rebecca DeRousse, assistant administrator at Baptist Rehab-Germantown. "We are proud to have so many of our programs accredited by such a prestigious organization."

CARF is an independent, not-for-profit accrediting body whose mission is to promote the quality, value and optimal outcomes of services through a consultative accreditation process centered around enhancing the lives of the people served. Founded in 1966, CARF establishes consumer-focused standards to help organizations measure and improve the quality of their programs and services.
