CORE Health Care, an innovative rehabilitation and long-term care facility for people with brain injury, psychiatric disorders and developmental disabilities, recently received a three-year accreditation from the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF).

The three-year accreditation is the most any provider can receive.

“It’s truly an honor to have our wonderful team members be recognized by an international accrediting body for their achievements and commitment to quality care,” said James S. Misko, Psy.D., president and co-owner of CORE Health Care. “We like to think of ourselves as exemplary in many ways, so for an experienced team of professionals to validate that belief is very fulfilling.”

CORE Health Care was cited as “exemplary” for a number of areas, including:

  • advocacy efforts
  • partnerships at local, state and national levels
  • the high-quality and research-oriented services provided
  • investments in technology
  • promotion of art in rehabilitation and care
  • investments in the facilities
  • the facilities themselves
  • leadership in the brain injury rehabilitation field based on neuroplasticity science and research

CARF is an independent, non-profit accrediting body of health and human services formed in 1966. CARF accreditation standards and criteria are regularly updated to ensure that consumers know an accredited facility continuously strives to offer the highest quality services.

“We approach every facet of treatment with a keen emphasis on both science and hope,” Misko explained. “We continually incorporate the latest findings and therapies that affect the brain’s ability to change, while also understanding that our residents’ long-term success is greatly nurtured by the profound human elements of supportive relationships, constant encouragement and optimistic advocacy.”
