McLaren Bay Region Earns Three-Year CARF Accreditation

BAY CITY, MICH – The Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF) has announced McLaren Bay Region has been accredited for a period of three years as a Medical Rehab Unit as well as a Stroke Specialty Program.

This accreditation decision represents the highest level of accreditation that can be given to an organization and shows the organization’s substantial conformance to the CARF standards. An organization receiving a Three-Year Accreditation has put itself through a rigorous peer review process. It has demonstrated to a team of surveyors during an on-site visit its commitment to offering programs and services that are measurable, accountable, and of the highest quality.

Through a partnership approach among the person served, the family/support system, and the provider, Stroke Specialty Programs provide services that focus on prevention, on minimizing impairment, on reducing activity limitations, and on maximizing the participation and quality of life of persons who have sustained a stroke.

“Our rehabilitation team at McLaren Bay Region is dedicated to providing the best possible outcomes for our patients,” said Judy Goik, Director of Rehabilitative Services at McLaren Bay Region. “We want the community to know that when they choose McLaren Bay Region for their rehabilitation needs and stroke care, they can trust they will be receiving the highest level of care.”

Meeting the standards set forth by CARF ensures continuously improved safety, quality, value and outcomes of services for the people McLaren serves. To learn more about McLaren Bay Region's inpatient rehabilitation program click HERE.
