September 19, 2013 by Castlewood Treatment Center in Castlewood In the News Castlewood Treatment Center is now accredited by the Joint Commission, widely considered the highest standard of care in the treatment industry.
Being Joint Commission accredited sets Castlewood apart with an elite group of facilities.
There are only about 2,000 organizations like Castlewood in the nation that have this prestigious designation.
In order to become accredited, Castlewood's programs, staff, and facility had to be evaluated. While being assessed by the Joint Commission on more than 1,200 elements, Castlewood "exceeded elements of clinical performance, and is considered a premier provider of eating disorder services in the nation," according to JCHAO.
Castlewood has also recently been awarded a three-year accreditation by the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities, International (CARF). Like the Joint Commission, CARF awards this title to only the most qualified facilities.
Being accredited is an exciting step for staff at Castlewood.
“Achieving this type of challenging, comprehensive accreditation demonstrates Castlewood’s commitment to delivering the highest level of care to those we serve,” said Nancy Albus, CEO of Castlewood Treatment Center. “This accreditation highlights the expertise and dedication of our treatment team and endorses our individualized treatment programs.”
Now that Castlewood is accredited by the Joint Commission and CARF, it must continue to meet quality standards for care and safety. It will also receive regular access to information about the latest trends in patient care. Clients of Castlewood can rest assured that they are receiving the best care possible.
