11/14/2013


JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. – CARF International has announced that James H. & Cecile C. Quillen Rehab Hospital has once again been accredited for a period of three years for its inpatient rehab program for adults and children, as well as its stroke specialty program.

This accreditation decision represents the highest level of accreditation that can be awarded to an inpatient rehab facility. An organization receiving a three-year accreditation has put itself through a rigorous peer review process and has demonstrated to a team of surveyors during an on-site visit that its programs and services are of the highest quality.

“At Quillen Rehab, we have the honor of helping our patients make progress in their healing, regain independence, and get back to the things they love,” said Brian Luff, the hospital’s administrator. “We are committed to providing only the highest quality of care for our patients, and we’re proud to be recognized by CARF for our dedication to quality and patient safety.”

James H. & Cecile C. Quillen Rehab Hospital is part of Mountain States Health Alliance and is located at 2511 Wesley Street in Johnson City, TN.

CARF is an independent, nonprofit accrediting body whose mission is to promote the quality, value, and optimal outcomes of services through a consultative accreditation process that centers on enhancing the lives of the persons served.  Founded in 1966 as the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities, and now known as CARF, the accrediting body establishes consumer-focused standards to help organizations measure and improve the quality of their programs and services.
