Certification in Stroke Rehabilitation, Spinal Cord Injury Rehabilitation, Amputee Rehabilitation, and Brain Injury Rehabilitation
In addition to Joint Commission accreditation, our stroke, spinal cord injury, amputee and brain injury rehabilitation programs have earned Disease-Specific Care Certifications from The Joint Commission.
Rehabilitation is crucial to the recovery process and can be the difference in patients living a lifetime with a disability versus regaining full independence. This Gold Seal of Approval® from The Joint Commission shows our hospital’s commitment to comply with the highest national standards for safety and quality of care for patients recovering from stroke, spinal cord injuries, amputations and brain injury.
